Decent tool, if you get it on sale

The question is, what do you need?

This multitool provides very decent pliers (I for one prefer the anvil style cutters on the Gerber vs those found on my Leatherman Wave, especially for cutting a size 10 "E" guitar string, which the Wave can't cut). Even though the knife is partially serrated, which I am not a fan of, the non serrated portion is at the tip, which I prefer for slicing, and the blade feels like it is decent quality (even though it is no doubt 420 or comparible Gerber mystery steel).

What I don't like about the tool, and one of the reasons I don't carry it every day is that the flat driver is nearly useless at the plier end of the tool, and barely an inch long. The phillips is a 2D design, and doesn't get a good purchase in any application that requires significant force.

The carabineer is OK, but I would much prefer a more useful tool (especially since there is a pocket clip on the knife (which I think should be on EVERY multitool as an option). The black version of this tool, with the safety cutter is a better version, but that still leads me to the question, what do you need in a multi tool? This may cut it for some, I would say it is better to get a Leatherman Wingman at this price point, and for a few bucks more you can get a Juice S2, which adds scissors, and loses a few ounces in the process.
