The most important criteria when choosing and buying a handheld tool, which in essence is any multitool, are its reliability and functionality. That is why it is worth giving preference to products from well-known manufacturers for which such products are core and core. Why this is so, we will explain below, using the example of the Lansky MT-050 multitool from Lansky Sharpeners.
Mini-multitool Lansky MT-050, an inexpensive souvenir from the famous manufacturer Lansky Sharpeners, an overview.
The multitool Lansky MT-050 began relatively recently began to be sold in Ukraine at a price of just over $ 15. Lansky Sharpeners is a well-known and well-established company in the world, specializing in the development and production of grinding tools and sets for sharpening knives, and other tools. In 2014, two multitools appeared in the range of its products, the full-sized LMT100B and the mini-multitool Lansky MT-050, which will be discussed later.
Mini-multitool Lansky MT-050, sizes, device, tools.
The mini-multitool Lansky MT-050 has a length of 10.5 cm. In the unfolded form and in its size is comparable to multitools of the Leatherman Juice series, so you unconsciously expect from it at least some similar functionality. Below, in a comparative photo, the Lansky MT-050 next to the Leatherman Wave multitool.
The multitool Lansky MT-050 is equipped with the following tools: pliers with nippers, a knife with a regular sharpening, a knife with a serrated blade, a can opener, a bottle opener with a flat screwdriver, a large flat screwdriver, a small flat screwdriver, a Phillips screwdriver, an awl with a file. Without any doubt about the quality of products under its brand, the manufacturer provides a lifetime warranty on its Lansky MT-050 multitool.
Multitool Lansky MT-050 inexpensive souvenir from a well-known manufacturer.
The multitool Lansky MT-050 can be put in plus a bright and attractive appearance, good build quality, comfortable voluminous handles with plastic overlays, in general everything that concerns a pure appearance, and of course a tasty price, because with the functionality of this mini-multitool it didn’t work out very well. for example.
one. The main tool of any multitool pliers with wire cutters, for some reason they did not want to eat anything from the proposed snack. And they were offered a choice: fishing line with a diameter of 0.6 mm, wire with a diameter of 0.5 mm. and a plastic clamp 3 mm wide. And the fishing line, and the wire, and the clamp were confidently clamped, twisted and simply wedged between the lips of the wire cutters.
2. The screw with difficulty, but still was half screwed with a Phillips screwdriver Lansky MT-050 into a tree. But the screwdriver itself after this procedure was slightly bent. Although, in fact, no transcendental loads were applied to it.
3. Well, the Lansky MT-050 can opener was particularly distinguished. He might have been glad to open a tin can, but he simply couldn’t physically do it, because the plastic lining of the handle prevents him. Because of it, it does not reach and cannot catch on the edge of the can with its lower part. In the photo below, it is compared to the Leatherman Wave can opener..
After all the above, it is difficult to draw any specific conclusion. Well, if the manufacturer clearly designated this product as souvenir products, then the expectations from it would be completely different. Plus, the claimed lifetime warranty is confusing. Despite the wide popularity of Lansky Sharpeners, now I will trust only its core products. Solutions and innovations in the field of sharpeners and sharpening devices, but no less than her knives or multi-tool. There are other manufacturers whose products are time-tested. Or something else has proven themselves on the positive side..
