It's the best of all the multi-tools on the market. Go to a department store and check it yourself. Interchangeable blades (diamond coated file vs saw blade). Heavy duty scissors are awesome. there is nothing close to them on the other multi-tools. The handles are curved so if you wanna grasp a nut hard, do not worry exerting your strongest hold, go for it, the handles won't hurt your palm.
There are additional storage spaces over the pouch so I put a Mag-lite Solitare and a replacement battery on either side of the pouch. They slide nicely through the elastic bands holding the leather pouch.
I keep it on my belt no matter where I go, it's like a magnet under the security doors though. When you hand it over to the security personnel when entering a mall or something, they envy you when taking it back while leaving.
