Thanks, black no sugar. But on the Multi tool thing, I think that accepting the SPW will still be available for routine cleaining there must be utility for the inclusion of military specific tools in a multi-tool sysytem, that was issued.

It just seems that as so many guys already buy them that the system might wake up and see the requirement.
