Some nicer scales are all I'd wish for to give this knife a full five stars. The shiny, hard plastic ones it has are too smooth and slippery if your hands are a little greasy or slimy. This three blade combination has always been my favorite configuration, so I was excited to see it offered by a reputable manufacturer like Klein. The slot-screwdriver blade is rigid enough to pry the lid off a paint can without bending or twist when applying a reasonable amount of torque to it...like the no-name brand examples I have had have usually done. The carbon steel blades are just the right hardness to sharpen easily yet hold an edge. I bought one of these knives about six years ago, and bought the one I have now about a year later after dropping the first one in the drink. I carry mine every day and hope Klein keeps making them forever.
When I purchased this knife, it did not come a sharp as i would have liked, and in the process of sharpening it up I found that the steel on my particular carbon steel model is quite hard. Once I got the bevel set and polished up my edge, it is now shaving sharp and appears to hold the edge quite well. All i do on a daily basis to maintain my edge is use the Klein 44150 pocket steel (which I feel is overpriced but does the job) to keep my edge honed and straight. I also generally keep a lanksy diamond rod in my bag to touch things up if need be, but I have not had to do that very often. Actually speaking of diamond rods... I have actually found that the blades on this particular knife seem to take an edge much better from my Arkansas stones than from my diamond sharpeners. For some knives its the other way around. Guess its just the steel composition.
BTW, my particular example did have a little blade play on the main blade when i got it, but it has not been a big issue. I...
I rebuild old houses. 35 years ago, I bought 2 of these. One got crushed (I forget how), plastic jacket broke and pin at one end came loose. The other I still have. One or the other has been in pocket of my work pants since I bought them. It is built to last. For me, this is a must have tool. If I misplace it, I look for it until I find it.
