These are a lot smaller than they appear. Low quality, worth $4.00; spent ~$20.00 and get low-end Leatherman multi-tools and you will be a lot happier. Spend ~$60.00 and get the Leatherman Wave (clearing out at Target at $23.38 YMMV) and you’ll save yourself the trouble of dealing with inferior tools and not having to waste time and money finding a winner. If you loose your tool, than this is for you, so you can minimize your remorse.

unlike survivorman.... Bear faked his real life experiences including sleeping in hotels. let his stuff sit on the shelves...maybe it make it to the 99 cent store.
The show – aired as Born Survivor in the UK – ran into considerable controversy in 2007 when it was revealed that he and his camera crews would spend the night in hotels, rather than camping in the wild, as the show depicted.
MUD, SWEAT, AND TEARS: LIFE AND TIMES OF BEAR GRYLLS
Grylls was taught to climb by his late father on the Isle of Wight, and became the youngest ever person to successfully scale Mt Everest at 23. He then served for three years with the British Special Air Service. During his service time, a free-fall parachute accident left him with a broken back. Grylls was approached by Discovery Channel after executives saw his TV series on Channel Four called Escape to the Legion. He filmed 75 one-hour shows for Man vs Wild, and was often filmed eating all sorts of creepy crawlies and drinking his own urine for survival. The series was briefly taken off the air and returned with a disclaimer reading: ‘Bear Grylls and the crew receive support when they are in potentially life threatening situations, as required by health and safety regulations. ‘On some occasions, situations are presented to Bear so he can demonstrate survival techniques. Professional advice should always be sought before entering any dangerous environment.’ Grylls told the AP in 2008: 'I think the new shows will reassure (fans). Everything is strong and double-checked. Discovery is so cautious of everything. If I so much as break wind on these shows, it's acknowledged now.' Grylls said he slept in the hotel to spend time with his family. The scandal wounded Gryll’s public image as being a rugged survivalist, and he was publically lambasted by Les Stroud of Survivorman.
