   That's why you need a real Leatherman tool or one of the other top
quality tools instead of the cheap junk. The cheap ones won't hold an edge
on the knives and the screw drivers strip the first tile you use them and
they just don't fit together or work properly. I've had my Leatherman for
about ten years and it still works fine.
