I think this is a great little tool very useful for those small jobs that pop up throughout the day. Easy to carry and deploy tools. The nail nicks actually work well for a change. It even looks cool. The knife comes nicely sharpened and I like that tension can be adjusted by the torque fasteners on the handles.
Common sense dictates that this tool is not for large jobs… it is designed to be small and lightweight and should be used accordingly. Remember, this is marketed as part of Bear’s survival series and not designed for hard, continuous use but good to have in an emergency situation. For this reason I give it 5 stars. Good job on this one Gerber!amazon.com
