The tool comes with a kydex sheath and that's important; the pry end of the tool has an edge so acute I've actually put an edge on it and use it as a small knife. The angle on the pry end works well, giving you quite a bit of leverage. Not sure how this being a pry bar with that type of edge on it will hold up, only time will tell. The tool also features a cordage cutter on the back side for twine and such, not something I use normally due to having a pocket knife but a nice addition.
The P Tool XL also features a 1/4 hex cut out to accept the phillips driver that's held captive in the body of the tool. The driver will work in a pinch but won't work as well as some others I've tried. Some have an oring retention system and this one will pull or pop out if you don't watch it.
Nothing to do with the capabilities of this tool but the tool includes as custom made bead from what appears to be as stainless nut. Kinda nice to see some personal touches included on a tool of this caliber.
- Pry edge can be used as a blade
- Strong steel that's holds edge
- Works as a screwdriver
- Tool is small and won't be up to some tasks
- Bit driver for phillips is awkward
