I’d suggest that while the tool, with 8mm, doesn’t have enough leverage to properly install a crankset or to remove a properly torqued crankset - and so wouldn’t be usable in the shop for that application - any 8mm is better than no 8mm out on the trail.  I once tightened a friend’s crankset back on with an oblong rock and a Leatherman. Since then I’ve always carried an 8mm adapter cap for a 6mm hex.
