I have carried this knife for years. Went through several of em. This last purchase was quite a let down. After about a month the blade corroded up, for a unknown reason. I did not use it on some chemical or anything else that would cause this black spotting to occur. I tried piercing the blade into the dirt several times, a old trick to shine up the blade. No luck. Tried a SOS pad...nope. The black spots were pitted into the blade. The blade metal must be made of a different material than what was used b4. Yes I will buy another identical knife, as I really like this knife. I noticed in the specs it says "carbon steel". I wonder if it used to be stainless steel.I'll try again. VOILA...I just found out model 1550-2 is carbon steel and 1550-42 is stainless steel. Go to Klein tools and check their catalog. The stainless in the only way to go!
The knife is very good when opened, both the blade and the screw driver. However, it's almost impossible to open either blade. It requires another tool to pry up either blade until they can be grasped by your fingers and opened. I have an older version of this knife that i used for years and never had this problem. I was very disappointed in this purchase.
