First impressions:

Shipped from: NexTool for review purpose


But...which company is NexTool?
This is the same company called NexTorch, a producer of flashlights and accessories, that's quickly increasling their distribution in over 100 countries and they continue to expand.
It is one of the latest EDC tool of the KO FUN SERIES

PROS:
- IMHO the best looking tool of the KO FUN SERIES
- useful but still with nice and creative design


CONS:
- screwdriver maybe isn't in the best position


Final thoughts and why you should buy it:
There are lots of similar EDC tools in the market, but it's difficult to find some well designed item and for what i've seen until now most of them suffer from low quality steel used or FLUCTUATING BATCH QUALITY….. so every time you buy theb it's like to play a lottery!
NexTool price is certainly a little higher compared to other not branded items/competitors, but this is what you have to pay to receive a great product from a reliable company, which is designing innovative products.
