I'm far from a steel snob, but mine just dulls super fast. I almost wonder if it is bad steel. Knife, pliers and screwdriver bits get used all the time, that is pretty much all a skeletool has.I have a wave. 8oz. Look at the site and filter by what tools you want. For me it is - blade, saw, file, pliers, scissors and bit driver. I use mine for game prep - saw - and field repairs mostly. I run a set of bits that will fix my bow or gun depending on the hunt. Agree with @Tod osier that better blade steel would be nice but not worth an upgrade to me. If I were starting over, I might look at one with an s30v blade.
