This is somewhat similar to the Leatherman Free T and P series pocket knives but it is different. It is not quite a one handed operation but I do appreciate the nice locking mechanism so tools such as the knife and saw don't get loose. It is definitely not cheap in terms of construction. You can feel the heft. I tried the scissors and they work great. My only suggestion is that you use lubricant such as honing oil on the pivot points to loosen and protect against dirt and lint. Once I worked the different attachments, it got smoother and easier to draw out especially the knife and saw. For the price I got it for me, it is a good value. Hopefully, in the future, maybe offer a case even though it can be attached to a keyring.
