Today we have officially launched the Multitool.org Multitool Minute- a video review section designed to give someone an overview of each tool and a reccomendation for use, all in just a minute!
Whatever magical creature you may think brings new toys during the holdays has done SOG a big favor and visited Wal Mart with a brand new SOG set, complete with a surprise to make serious multitool collectors rejoice!
With six of the ten contenders already arrived, the Fantastic Five Dollar Challenge is in full swing. I figured that while we waited for the remaining four tools to arrive we might as well recap the initial impressions of what is in already. I have to say, the results so far have not been overly positive, with what I consider to be three out and out failures, although forum members seem to disagree on one of them. Of the two I considered worthwhile, well, let's just say they were worth $5, but I'm not sure even a hardcore multitool and gadget junkie like me would spend more than that on them!
As part of the Fantastic Five Dollar Challenge I knowingly purchased what I assumed were fake versions of a few brand name tools. I did the same during the Two Dollar Challenge last year as well, and I think that it is important to mention that folks really shouldn't be fooled by fakes that come in what appears to be real packaging.
