It is important with a multitool that the corrosion resistance is very high even without any coating for further protection.
A mirror polished
surface or a polished surface is recommended not only for the corrosion resistance but for the cleaning as well. On the SwissTools the surface is very well polished and I would call it a mirror polished surface on the handles, construction and most functions.
The handles on the SwissTool is large and comfortable and does not hurt the hand when force is used. The plier itself is not a needle nose type and this is a dilemma for some. Many want the needle nose type
plier. The sturdier plier on the SwissTool is actually more comfortable to use and the extra surface at the tip can be helpful when pulling on a device.
A needle nose plier is very useful for
most tasks and some prefer that type.
There is a small dilemma with a mirror polished surface on the functions because it can get difficult when using a screwdriver. It can get slippery and I would
agree that this is a small drawback for this type of surface.
One of the key factors for me it that a multitool product should have locking function because this makes the use of it much more safe
and comfortable. The lock must be solid and easy to release.
Another dilemma on a multitool is the wire cutters on the plier and if any damage happen here it can be difficult to repair without sending
it home. Some products on the marked got a wire cutter part with inserts that can be replaced easy. This is smart!
The SwissTool plier got a section for hard wire cutting on the inner part and the
outer part can cut up to 40HRC. Read the instruction manual if doubts on the use or variations. The plier is one of the best on the marked.
