This is pocket-sized multitool even though it is often referred to as full size.
Roughly 4 inches in length and an inch a quarter wide.
There is a pocket clip that is removable.
Stainless steel body.
420 high carbon stainless steel blade – partially serrated
Holds an edge very well. Chisel ground. 2.5 inches in length
Needlenose pliers – not the finest point but certainly good enough.
Carabiner and bottle opener
Large bit driver
Handle bit storage
Philips head and straight heads. Easy to access.
I consider this a dual purpose multi-tool. In other words it has two main uses in the way that I use it. You have the pliers aspect and then you have the knife aspect. Sure it has a bit driver but that isn’t of any concern for me 99.9% of the time.
Heave duty basic multi-tool. Has some good features but lacks the kitchen sink.
Awesome finish and quality. Very tight movements and I like that. I don’t care for a loose tension.
I personally care this for backpacking but honestly there are some multitools that I would consider better for the job. I do prefer having a saw, a can opener, file, etc. Biking yes. EDC, yes.
