All of the tools on this knife are good. The knife is sturdy and sharp. I’ve gotten good use out of the bottle opener and the scissors. Corkscrew is helpful, as well.
Is it as nice as the original Climber Economy? No. It’s got a plastic or nylon handle which makes it lighter but less cool in my opinion. But is it worth $15? Definitely

The Climber II knife is the knife I carry with me every day: even in the office, it always comes in handy. The can opener has a knack for staying sharp, the scissors often trim stray threads, and the long blade is just the thing for peeling a piece of fruit at lunch. I’ve also used the leather punch to add holes to my belt (thank you, regular exercise!), the corkscrew easily opens a wine bottle, and the bottle opener and screwdrivers get regular use. What’s impressed me the most is the durability of the Victorinox steel: I’ve put all sorts of stress and leverage on the parts and have yet to break one, even prying loose the lid of an old stuck paint can.
Some quick tips for you:
1) Periodically clean out your knife: carefully open all parts, blow dust out, clean pocket lint, etc. Check the screw holding the scissors and tighen it.
2) Oil the knife: if it starts to get hard to pull out the parts, a drop of 3-in-1 oil at each end and in the middle (for the leather punch/hook handle) works wonders. Let the oil soak in, wipe up the excess, and don’t put it back into your pocket until you’ve had a chance to work the parts back and forth a few times (to get the oil into the hinges) and then let it sit out on a cloth to pick up leftover leakage. In the comments, Patrick L. also suggests trying WD-40–he says it dries to a powder and the pressure of the spray will flush out any dirt you can’t reach.
3) Sharpen with care: you should seldom have to sharpen the can opener, but the rest will need periodic sharpening. Think carefully about which angle you apply the whetstone to the scissors: you don’t want to have the scissor blades abraded further apart from each other.
Do these things a couple of times a year and this knife will last you forever.

While this knife is a bit heavy for everyday toting, it’s a welcome companion on a hike. Durable and sturdily constructed, I give it a thumbs up.
