FYI, I got the IDL T10 from Amazon for $14.99 a few months ago.http://www.amazon.com/TOOLS-INTERNATIONAL-2000CP-Keychain-MultiTool/dp/B000056VTZ/ref=sr_1_11?ie=UTF8&s=home-garden&qid=1220072850&sr=8-11The IDL T10 I received seems slightly different fromthe Sebertech in this review. The knife on my tool had the chisel and not V grind. My tool also had a darker grey color and the fit and finish seemed a little lacking. It wasn't horrible, but it didn't look as nice as the ones in the photos of this review.The locks were also very difficult to release. I'm overall pleased with the tool, but be forewarned, the quality may have declined with the IDL version.
well if it is China made at least it seems to still be quality Unless mine was made in the USA then I have no idea
I just bought the IDL version tonight at Ace Hardware. What a piece of junk! I'm not going to candy coat it, it's junk. That's what happens when you take a great design and have it made in China!

So true.... I had high hopes for this one but it failed in every way possible. Fit and finish is poor, the steel is flimsy, and the tools are very hard to open. The only bright spot is the blade which is very sharp. Overall, save your $$$ for a used American made version. I went to Sears and they don't make them anymore.
I just went and checked mine It was USA M4 repacked in the IDL T10 package Sorry to hear that the newer ones aren't as good of quality
I know that's a bit different but i like to see a versus between the M4 and the micro fishing tool of coast knives:http://www.coastportland.com/product.php?prodid=6&prodnums=¿9¡12¡1108¡8¡5¡11¡7¡6¿&mastCat=5
