    Price dropped to $15 and change for the CS via Amazon.

    I canceled my backorder and reordered.

    Edit: Prices dropped on the other Styles as well.

    Finally the Style/Style CS has landed, I'll wait a bit before picking one up. On the other hand, the Squirt PS4 is also out.

    Style CS backordered at KnifeCenter

    Just ordered a Style CS (up to Canada, bleh shipping) and was told it's backordered. Hopefully they'll get some more soon.

    On a side note, I'm really excited about this pocket tool. It *looks* to combine the scissors of the Micra with a decent enough blade. Been carrying a Micra and Skeletool so far, but really only use the Skeletool blade/bottle opener and the Micra's scissors. Not sold on the Style's blade (small clip-point vs. my Skeletool's larger serrated one) but will trial it and see. With my new flashlight, things are getting pretty heavy below the belt, maybe this'll be a chance to shed some weight.

    I got a couple, but honestly don't dig them that much. Nothing terrible wrong with them, but the nail nick on the blade is too small and too close to the pivot to get leverage. It beats having no blade with you, but in my view the Vic Classic blows it away. For $10 - $15 though, maybe its worth playing with. JMO.

    I'm not really thrilled with the performance of the Style either. Maybe it was my high expectations, but I'm pretty disappointed with them.

    I have mine and this is my opinion:
    great:
    bigger blade than my classic SAk
    I´ll custom it adding my house key

    no so great:
    aluminium scale with soem nicks out of box sure anodized color will tear easely
    holes in blade only usefull to collect drift and other food rests
    nail nick small and to close to ax=littel leverage
    scissors to thick and no too pointy (I´ll try to fix it grinding them)
    file, why nailnick in abrasive side bad when I use to file my nails (I´ll fix filling with soem cement) and you have another nicknail in the other side

    Anyway I´ll try to custom mine and keep it over sak classic becouse that.

    Im getting annoyed by the ever so clever change catcher deviously built into the side, that yawning chasm of missing toothpick or awl snatches up dimes every time i oops and carry it loose in pocket with change!! I've used mine quite a bit for what it was made to do and it is a decent tool, especially for opening small packages, snipping string etc, so I got my monies worth but ive started keeping all the change it collects in a tin and when its full im going to buy another multi tool!!

    The Styles are pretty handy, but as mentioned the knives are almost useless. Sure, they're large and sharp enough, but they're difficult to open.

    I'm working on a more detailed review, but bottomline is that I cannot recommend them over alternatives such as the SAK and Squirt tools.

    Thank you!!

    Finding rust on the nail file. It sits in my pocket and is the only thing I have ever had rust being on my keychain. :(

    I don't have a multi-tool on my keyring yet, but this may be it! Thanks.
