@blaineg Pretty much, IME. I have yet to see a properly tightened nut get undone by one of these flat things with a long stepped slot “wrench”. I’ll give it credit for probably beng okay to open a fresh paint can, but so can a decent nail file if you’re careful. These stainless ones are probably less instantaneously suicidal than those aluminum ones from Hell + Bowell, but that’s not saying very much.
I was looking for inexpensive weird-shaped multitools just last night, and this is just the sort of item that was why I didn’t buy any.
The tempting multitool has scissors, file, tweezers.
You know what you never ever want for just a momentary usage, is the ability to tighten or loosen a nut that has nothing around it, or the ability to imprecisely measure a thing that’s less than 3 inches long.
@ravenblack The 3" scale is potentially useful to the owners of antique British cars whose tolerance for damp is notoriously low. Basically, if you drop the clip on the ground before setting out, and it’s wet when you pick it up, make sure that your AA membership is paid up. If there’s enough water on the ground to measure the depth with that scale, take a bus. If the water is deeper than the scale, don’t even open the garage door.
@CBL_WV it goes like this: if you’re using one of these as an actual money clip, then you can’t do any of the other functions without leaving your money loose for some miscreant (or the wind) to run off with. So you need another one to do the tool parts while keeping your money secured with the first. And you need another one beyond that for when you lose one of the first two. Hopefully not the one holding your money. So three is the perfect number of these for EDC.
@RedOak@werehatrack How aerodynamic do you suppose these are? If the corner edges were sharpened nicely, they might make decent ninja throwing stars, and blood should clean off pretty easily from SS. And weight should be about right.
But then, you’d definitely need a leather holster to carry these around in.
@Mandamm Those of us who live in Texas are not necessarily fans of either team. We have reasons. The ones who live outside of the Houston area are likely rooting for the Phillies just because they aren’t the Astros. And those of us in Houston who have been here long enough to become actively pissed off with all of the sportsball crap have a pretty good chance of wishing it would all go away. Even those who regularly go down to the park and play ball on the weekends.
No, I don’t think all Meh’s customers are in Texas, but still. And I know that mischief a few years ago. That was foolish and they were sanctioned. The funny part was, My BF’s team is the Nationals and he sent me a shirt. I wore it and figured no one would accost me for it…lol
