I just purchased a MicroPlus by Swiss-Tech (www.swisstechtools.com) and I'm pleased with it so far. I was trying to not have to carry a Leatherman or Victorinox to have access to screwdrivers, and the MicroPlus isn't a bad alternative. What do you folks think? Concurring or dissenting opinions are welcome.<br><br>Craig<br><br>

A friend has one and I've played with it. They are well made. Tool steel is tough,but prone to rust. How the oxide finish will perform only time will tell.Im "getting by" with my bulky,S/S Shrade multi tool. It was a gift and is still years ahead of what was out there before the leatherman revolution.If you wear this in a pocket,try to get a sheet of anti rust paper to wrap it in.My source is the shipping boxes for new firearms.<br><br>

Right now it's in a back pocket, attached to a Photon II MicroLight. I'll keep an eye out for rust. Thanks for the caution.<br><br>

I have a swiss-tech micro plus, I like it a lot. I carry it on my key chain with my photon 2 and my swiss-tech utili-key.<br>I like how far the jaws open for little pliers. I always have a quality folder in my pocket as well.<br><br>"Audaces Fortuna Iuvat"

You know, I like the much-maligned pliers in my CyberTool 34 better than those in the MicroPlus because the Vic pliers are spring-powered, wherea you must open and close the MicroPlus pliers manually, which can be rather clumsy. Its screwdrivers are pretty cool, however. I carry my Utilikey in my wallet next to my spare car keys.<br><br>
