This was a gift from a friend earlier this year. It is very handy and I keep it in my kit bag. I have to be honest and I say I use it mostly to open beverages after the match, but I am ready for any boot stud adjustments. As far creative uses go, I sometimes use it as an impromptu fork, it is small but much sturdier and "greener" (if you are inclined to that) than those plastic forks. Bottom-line: well made, simple to use, has many uses, low price, all around great little gift.
