   My replacement arrived, and it seems good!! I also noticed that this thing has a small pair of tweezers stuck in the handle, sort of like what you would get on a SAK! I may have to carry this for a a while and see how it does!!  :climber:

  I got another one, and it does not have the issues of my original one. The pliers are straight and no grinding noise!  :woohoo:  I may have to carry and use it for a while to see how it does.  To the original poster, if you are still out there, have you used yours at all, and what has your experience been with it??

Sorry, didnt realize so much movement on this thread! Yes, I might have considered it at $40. The fit and finish were surprisingly good, and the pliers are awesome! Large spring loaded pliers are sweet as heck. But it weighs so much I haven't found a place for it outside of my tool bag so far. I was really really surprised about both the blade and the saw, both work better than expected.

The biggest reason it is seeing little use ATM is I keep getting new toys to play with! I just got a kick (then modified it), then a charge (that I turned into two leatherman knives)

If this tool has a 4mm bit adapter I'd probably use it all the time. The bit part of this tool is the biggest letdown, the rest has been way above expected for the price.

A glass breaker on the end is pure genius. Also, is it me or is the holster way above what you would expect?

Also, just tested scissors, they actually cut better than those on my wave...how embarrassing.

Cheers,
H.G.

      What you did to those Leathermans is really cool!  I never would have thought of that! The bit driver does not bother me too much, but they could have made the tool a tad wider and put a standard 4mm one on it. It would not have made much of a difference in size or weight. The holster is pretty nice considering it is an off brand name tool. Speaking of the weight, I carry a Surge on me every weekend and it is on my belt and I hardly notice it is there. If I put it in my pocket, that would be a different story!   I am going to start carrying this one and give it a test. Thanks for your insight and for bringing this tool to our attention!!  :salute: :like:

I just got a BO surge and strangely...even with a pocket clip it wasn't as heavy as I expected, but I ALWAYS wear a serious belt on me at all times (Wazoo Cache belt is my jam) so I never feel the pull of my pockets.

I guess I could see something cool in this tool, Spring loaded pliers of this size really feel comfortable, and the cutter/glass breaker are super handy to have on hand. The scissors are definitely on par with the best scissors I've every used on a MT.

Cheers,
H.G.

I just got one. It's a heavy tool but a full size one so that's okay.

First thing I noticed was that the bits were 5mm or 3/16". Micro bits just fell in and 1/4" ones are too big.
Another thing that I didn't like was the design of the scissors. If I push it by the little plastic grip to keep it back in the tool, I can really cut myself. The scissor will open up and stab into the pushing part. It's not something you can casually lend to someone.

The rest of the tool felt alright. Will have to test it in the field.

Tldr; Good tool for money, will stab friends

Turns out this tool has exactly the same pivot size as the Leap, works independent of the lock mechanism, and even has the same curve as the multi-tool when stored..all I had to do is minor adjustments of the frame and scissor and the swap worked perfectly. Not only that but I can still open the leap one handed. Nice part is that opening this way instead of on the original tool (by the plastic piece) is much much safer.

Actually I took the whole thing apart but I can't remember. Maybe a T9? I do remember there was more than one size.

Finally found this thread.
What happened to this tool? I thought people would be all over it on youtube, seeing how cheap it is and how nice is looks. Yet no English reviews exist. It would help if the tool had a name or even brand. :rant:
WeAllJuggleKnives had shown it briefly, but did not end up reviewing it.

I never could pull the trigger on buying this MT when it was available on Amazon earlier this year. Now that it is unavailable, I find myself wishing that I had bought it.

It appears that it is available on AliExpress.

 I don't know, it looks suspicious that nobody bothers with it. I asked WeAllJuggleKnives a while ago if he'd review it and he said the quality was not good. I liked the design and still do, but if the execution is subpar I am not going to bother with it either.
