  • Cheap but doesn't impress

    Involvement:Expert (understands the inner workings) - Ownership:1 week to 1 month

    Pros:

    - Cheap
    - Contains most tools you may need while travelling
    - Is okay as a contingency toolkit, but won't survive heavy use due to sloppy manufacturing. Everything works though.
    - The format makes it possible to carry it in your wallet, which makes it less likely that you will forget it at home when you need it the most

    Cons:

    - The knife and scissors are not very sharp and made of a low-grade steel
    - Most tools tend to fall out from their slots

    OtherThoughts:

    The ear pick is better used as a tooth pick. But this is a matter of taste.

    Bottomline:

    If you intend to use this as a contingency/emergency toolkit when nothing better is a available, this is a nice, cheap toolkit in a handy format. Surprisingly, everything works, although not perfect. But the quality is low and continuous use will lead to wear.
