Disclaimer:  I received product free for the purpose of review.

In my hunt for gear, something usually has to be an improvement to something I already use, a way to add redundancy or "something really cool, that I've never even heard of before".  The LighterBro Multi-Tool falls into two of those categories.  It's a small compact way to add redundancy to your Bugout bag, etc. and it's a great idea that I had never even thought of.  I'm sure it goes without saying, this is not a replacement for a quality multi-tool.  This is the first product that ever made me wish I smoked.

Upon receipt, the first thing that struck me was the quality retail packaging.  It is well packaged and can easily hold it's own on any retail shelf of any store.  Usually, items like this I fell lucky if it comes in a ziplock bag.  Secondly, I was surprised by the weight and heftiness of it.  Don't get me wrong, it's not overly heavy, but it's solid.  You can tell it's made of quality materials.  It holds a Bic lighter very snugly, almost too snug.  The knife is very sharp, although not sharp enough to shave.  I used the blade at work quite a bit to open bags of potting soil, cardboard boxes,etc. and didn't have any issues.  I've used the scissors to open heavy plastic packaging, and it was a little difficult, but it was doable.  I purposely overworked the scissors and they handled it with no issues.  Screwdrivers worked as they should.  I'm extremely pleased with my LighterBro and cannot say enough good things about it.  I think everyone should have one in their glove box, bugout bag, etc.  Pick one up and let me know what you think.  You won't regret it.

It also has an optional belt clip, although I didn't care for that much.  It fit in my pocket just fine.
