I have also used it for many things it was not designed for, such as levering things open (even manholes), hammering, chiselling, hanging as a plumb-bob weight, hair trimming, and many others I don't recall right now.

The price is high, but the quality and utility over time makes it well worth it.
What is missing for everyday carry is a light source and ignition source, both of which are on my keyring.
I also recently added a new leather pouch and a perfectly sized torch as a companion tool that slots onto the pouch.

The tread, OTOH, I regard as a an overpriced and rather pathetic gimmick.
The tread is like a 4x4 that has low profile rims and no ground clearance, the practicality is theoretical only.

Yeah, my multitool pocketknife has been with me for maybe 20 years and I still use it all the time. Works perfectly.

If I hear that fucking phrase again, this baby's gonna blow
Into a million itsy bitsy tiny pieces, don't you know,
Just like my favourite scene in Scanners .
