Not bad, but also not great.

After using this tool for a little while, I figured that it would be a good time to review it.

Pros:
-Compact with only the "essentials". It's my Every-Day-Carry (EDC) and I like that the Phillips and Flat drivers are roughly full sized.
-The F.A.S.T system works well and is holding up admirably, although I really only need the knife maybe 5-10 times per week.

Cons:
-Recently, the "screw" portion of the torx Chicago screw that acts as the pivot for the blade and phillips driver fell off and was lost. Rather than go through the warranty process with Gerber, I just replaced it with a 2mm machine screw from the hardware store. Not a huge deal, but you'd think that Gerber would use lock-tite or something similar to keep that from happening.
-The plier jaws have developed a tiny bit of a wiggle. Not terrible, but probably more than should be apparent after maybe 4 dozen uses.
-Initially the locking mechanism for the knife was EXTREMELY difficult to use. I used a little powered graphite to help get it going and it's worked fine ever since.

All in all, it's not bad for the price, but you probably shouldn't expect it to last forever.
