Believe it or not i find the plier on the multi plier good. I think they are well designed considering the price of the tool. I once cut a 2mm metal wire and they did it, but i got a bad pinch from the handles, probably due to the tools inside bending under the squeezing. The tools are not bad either, but they are non-locking so you have to be ware. The philipps screwdriver is quite long and solid but it is so polished that if you drive it hard on a screw it may slip and close catching your fingers between the bottom of the handle and itself, causing you to swear badly. The saw on the multiplier is short too, almost like the other bulky tool on the right, but as i once did a comparison with the saw on the Flik and it did a lot better than the Gerber, going with little effort through a 2cm plywood piece. Here below are the two saws side by side for comparison. Also a word about the sheath it came with: nice! Believe it or not, i find the sheath of good quality considering it is for few money.
