I bought a two pack a few months ago - $3.99 shipped I think.


Not sure they have any real utility.

BTW, I don't mean to sound like a shill, but Meritline has some dirt cheap stuff.

I also noticed this at ML the other day.


Look familiar?

cabala mini multitool

I signed up for Meritline's email subscription. I get an email about once a week. Maybe once a month I buy something.
Warning - I am not an expert on anything having to do with this forum, but that won't stop me from saying what I think. smile

I have a similar tool in my "work" EDC pouch. I haven't actually used it yet, but I know that the time will come.
The best luck is what you make yourself!

No. These are the worst possible execution of the solutions they try to embody.

When a man dare not speak without malice for fear of giving insult, that is when truth starts to die. Truth is the truest freedom.

I bought one just to try out. But the design (exposed blade) seems like an accident waiting to happen.

I have one too. Good quality steel for pry bar. Nothing really fancy in regards of other functions, but it's better than nothing and very easy to carry - in a wallet, shirt pocket, behind the lining (I'm usually carrying it in the jeans lighter pocket - completely unnoticeable and tight fit). Got it for $1 (shipped!) of eBay.

Quality can be very variable. I had one back in the 1980's. They are not bad for what they are, sadly they ain't no substitute for a small multi-tool.

I don't do dumb & helpless.

I have one or two, but I don't know where it (they) are. I prefer my Swiss Tech micro pliers and a good knife.

I'd rather carry a SAK or small multi-tool.
