Re: Roxon Storm S801 Multi-tool Review

I finally got my S801S and got to fiddle with it yesterday.
I got it for almost like USD40 (Php1,850 @ USD1:PHP50).
Off course the first thing one does when getting a new tool is to open and check all the implements. With that I realized the awl is a ‘fingernail buster’!!! I had to lubricate the hinge and turn the screw a wee tiny bit just to get the awl out without causing the main blade to wiggle on the pivot.
Along with the teeny tiny Philips driver, it seems their designers don’t realize how short the tools are vs how strong the back springs are; or where they placed the nail nick which *might* just be a little too close to the pivot. It was a joy to open up Vic tools after handling the Roxon hahaha
Aside from that, I love the OHO of the main blade. It’s also nice ‘n quite sharp out of the box. The tool density is just right — though I’d rather have a metal file/saw vs the wood saw.
But at the end of the day, nothing beats its value for money!
