Most multi-tool contraptions are either very heavy and difficult to use, especially if you maintain short fingernails, or they’re extremely lightweight and weak, with tools that won’t last or are designed impossibly non-ergonomic and are more of a pain than a strength. It happens; I’ve purchased a few variations over the years and have had to settle prior to working with Coast on their LED155 multi-tool. The same moral of the story pertains to a quality blade, because there’s few things worse than having your one and only survival blade fail while you’re out in the middle of the wild world of extreme weather. The moral here? Test and find the best tool for optimum performance and survival.
