First thing's first. It is NOT flimsy. I assume the people that have left these comments bought from a 3rd party and not Amazon and were unfortunately given fakes, if that happens to you contact Amazon. I would be comfortable running mine over with a car, or even just parking a car on it. It is a few millimeters thick, doesn't sound like much but keep in mind it's probably only 10 millimeters wide. True Utility = True quality.
Since I started on quality, my "cut" bit is still sharp as ever. I usually use it to cut cable ties and those plastic straps on boxes, as well as rarely using it to cut threads.
The bottle opener, is ultra-handy, and is very usable once you have used it a few times. It does dig into the hand a bit when using, but that's because you are using the keys as a lever. Doesn't really hurt, just pointing it out so you know.
The screw driver bit.... wow I've used that bit for sooo much. It's like a universal bit lol. I won't make a list but here's some weird ways I've used it; Pressing settings buttons on my watch, opening a paint tin, and cutting.
Someone was concerned about the tool "snagging" on clothes/pocket linings. It does NOT in anyway snag. It does NOT even scratch your phone. I have put it in the same pocket on occasion, but rarely lol I'm no idiot.
Tweezers.. you can't use it, I don't see why they put it there, I have no need for it but you might, so just saying.
Downsides = None. I literally have no cons about this, with a year of use and love.
Now I put this as Ideas, not downsides, because obviously the description and picture shows this isn't part of the product. I want it have a flip out small knife, would complete it as a "Swiss Army Key Tool"
