Out of all the multi-tools I own, this one has the very best pliers of any of them... Now that I have the one, single positive thing about this stool said, I will give a brief summary of my negative feelings about it. The bits/blades beak very easily, the cover thing is very inconvenient, and it comes off when opened sometimes. the tools clump when you open one, the others follow. The locks for the outside blades are inconvenient as well. It is not built well compared to the other tools I have (13 in all) This one would rank 3rd worst in build quality. As a mater of fact, I just had to place an order for two replacement bits for a total of $21. I'm very dissatisfied with the quality of this tool... But, I honestly mean it when I say, the pliers is amazing!
