For my first multitool experience I got my Dad a Leatherman Wave for christmas and thought it was a pretty neato take on the ol' swiss army knife concept. Didn't want to spend $50 so found this guy with similar features for $25 area. Going from closed to pliers out is fairly easy with the side push action. The one handed flick ability to open is also pretty cool, but takes a little practice. I found myself having to very carefully grab one side/bar and getting the flick angle just right. The way the scissors fold in and out is a little awkward and semi dangerous, but gets the job done. Overall has been a handy medium duty tool so far. According to the Gerber tool meter I'm missing out on fun and adventure points on this guy by not having the black version.
