I bought the tool due to loosing a compact leatherman. the compact knives have helped me out many times on holidays and camping trips so do like them for functionality. unfortunately i have returned 2 of the tools as they break easily. the 1st was when i went to use the knife it bends back further than it should, changed with not much hassle, the second broke when i went to use the pliers. the same problem, no support and when you grip tight they move and release making them useless. i exchanged for a more expensive item.
