I consider a tool a good tool when I paid a fair price for it and it does the job for which it was purchased.  While the Sheffield three-piece tool set isn’t a Leatherman set, that’s not really the point.  It’s useful and boasts a low price point.  I’ve used Sheffield knives before, too, and while they’re no SOG or Buck, they are about a third the price. 

The set starts with a useful one-hand-opening liner lock knife that sports a 4-1/2” drop point pattern blade and a hardwood handle.  The set’s other two pieces are pliers-based mutlis featuring the usual suspects such as saws, screwdrivers, awls, and clip pattern blades, and are also adorned in hardwood.

It’s an inexpensive set at around $14, but it’s the kind that would serve well as a knock-around tool set — tools you wouldn’t really have to be upset about if they got torn up or broken after hard use.

    the knife is not a lock back it uses a liner lock/frame lock and it looks to have a drop point instead of clip

    I love it when you guys bust us on stuff, it reminds us that your actually reading these posts. Nice Catch Douglas, you rock! Changes made.

    I have this set (paid $20 a few years ago.) Not bad, considering the price. The knife does indeed have a clip (which is easily removable.) The pliers on the smaller multitool bend pretty easily (not good for anything that involves more than a minimal amount of twisting force) but it’s the item among the three that I use the most often (fits in the pocket well.)

    I would like to find a Sheffield single blade.
