Buy your electrical tools individually

"This is the same idea as a Leatherman tool, except the main tool is the wire strippers and the other tools that might come in handy to someone doing electrical work. The wire strippers are okay, but I find dedicated wire strippers (e.g., model #0529938) are every bit as good and are only two thirds the price.
The supplemental tools in the handles are what might attract a handyman. Here are my comments:
- screwdrivers are okay. They haven't been rounded off and the open easily enough, but they are awkward to use because the screwdriver is not centered in the handle like it is in a regular screwdriver.
- the blade needs to be sharpened regularly and doesn't keep an edge. It is awkward to use knife because it is in an odd position when you hold the handles.
- the saw does work, although it useful for only very thin wood and I suspect would quickly dull if tested on hardwoods
- the file is adequate to do your nails, but that's about it.
- the wire hook and wire cutter do work, but they are (again) awkward to use because of their position in the handle.
Overall? It's not a bad tool if you are doing an occasional electrical job (e.g., replacing an electric cord on a lamp). Personally, I'd spend more on better quality individual tools dedicated to a single use (e.g., wire strippers, wire hook) and skip this multitool."
