I’m inclined to say that this ruler knife is not going to be the most handy multi-tool you’ve ever had your hands on. Then again, I’ve been wrong many times before on the functional nature of odd-looking multis, but the ruler/knife combo is a new one for me.
It’s not really that it looks all that bad, but for the whopping $30 they want for this thing you could have a super wicked pocket tape that measures more than 6” and a decent lockback or stockman as well. Sure, the form factor is a little larger that way, but you do get better versions of both and the ability to measure something longer than your cell phone, so consolidating doesn’t really make sense here.
I’d love for someone to tell me if I’m in left field here and whether or not this is an idea that was best left on a cocktail napkin.
