It may look obvious that the best tool to buy in each category is the most expensive (nunchaku or lookout tower), but a more detailed analysis shows us this:

The nunchaku costs 725,000 per 100 strength points, which is 7250 per point.
The skeleton key costs 450,000 per 60 points, 7500 per point (more expensive).
The grapplig hook is the same, 7500 per point.
The cloak is even worse, as it costs 8000 per point.

So the conclusion is that the best buy is the nunchaku, with no difference between skeleton key and grappling hook (just your treasury).

The lookout tower costs 500,000 per 60 points, 8333.33 per point.
The guard dog is exactly the same.
The tripwire costs 9333.33 per point, which is far more expensive.

You now know which is the exact cost of each tool, look for the ones that best suites your treasury...

actually you get a bit more spy from the skeleton key over the grappling hook. Test it out sometime.

Is you fail to recon someone can you loose those tools then?
Or is this only when you want to sab weapons and fail.

You do not lose weapons reconning, you will only lose them when sabbing or if someone sabs them from you.

But I guess there is still some detail needed especially for sab tools.

Actually how is it that the sab success rate is affected by sab tools? Because lets assume it's 50% with SK and 55% with nun(just an assumption) so even if Skis more expensive per point of strength if the chances are that near I'd prefer buy SK since every time I fail and loose those nuns hurt like hell since 725K to 450K wasted is way to big difference.
