Product Description

Size: One Size

Leatherman packs the full-size Skeletool with the tools you're likely to use most often.

Introducing the Brand New Skeletool from Leatherman
Now you're ready to lighten your load and boost your survival skills -- with Leatherman's Skeletool. At a mere 5 ounces the new, full-sized multitool keeps weight and volume to a minimum without sacrificing quality and true functionality, and that's what the Skeletool is all about. Many multitools have multiple options, but they’re often heavier -- and they're loaded with more features than most people actually need on a regular basis. Conversely, pocket knives are light and streamlined, but they render themselves useless when the task calls for a more versatile tool. Enter the new Skeletool platform, offering minimal weight, compact size and endless capabilities. And with the Skeletool's integrated, removable pocket clip, you can easily clip this tool onto a belt, a pack, or a vest -- with no sheath or tote required.

Key User Features
The Skeletool CX has a large knife blade that can be accessed while the tool is closed; to open it, just place your thumb in the thumbhole at the base of the blade and rotate it out until it's fully extended -- which will engage the safety lock. This locking mechanism is noted with a padlock symbol on the tool. To unlock the blade, press the locking mechanism towards the handle until the blade slides past the lock.

Equipped with a universal bit driver, the Skeletool offers real utility options like no other multitool. To change the tool bits, simply unfold the tool and remove the bit from the bit driver -- and pop it out. And replacing bits is just as easy. Just press a new one into position and you're good to go. There's even a spare bit located in the handle side opposite the knife blade. This tool includes the following bits: Phillips #1 and #2, screwdriver 3/16-inch and 1/4-inch.

In the plier jaws you'll find a hard-wire cutter and a regular wire cutter. The regular wire cutter is great for softer grades of wire, but the hard-wire cutter is excellent for heavier jobs -- like cutting and bending fishhooks.

Multitool Capabilities:
The Skeletool keeps it simple -- and light, and compact, and easy to transport. Why waste time with pointless, heavy add-ons when all the basics are right at your fingertips? With its open hardware, skeletal design and hardy appearance, the Skeletool boasts a premium stainless steel blade, pliers, a universal bit driver, and a carabiner/bottle opener ... and that's it.

Key Tech Specs:

  • Length: 4 inches/10 cm closed
  • Weight: 5 ounces/142 grams
  • Materials: Stainless steel, 420HC
  • Included Bits: Phillips #1 and #2, Screwdriver 3/16-inch and 1/4-inch

Leatherman makes a full range of complementary accessories and add-ons for this and other Leatherman products.

Optional Accessories (not included)
Spice up your Skeletool with genuine Leatherman accessories. Options include a bit kit that offers 21 double-ended bits for real versatility. From new belt sheaths to t-shirts and caps, genuine Leatherman accessories are durable, fun and show that you're a part of Leatherman World. With such a wide variety available, it's easy to find just the add-on that's right for you.

All Leatherman products are covered by a 25-year limited warranty. If within 25 years from the purchase date of your genuine Leatherman tool you find any defect in material or workmanship, you can count on the manufacturer to make it right with fast warranty service. To obtain warranty service, return your tool to Leatherman Tool Group. Depending on the tool defect, they will decide whether to repair your tool or replace it with a product of equal or greater value. No variations, upgrades or refunds are offered.

The Leatherman Tool Group and its History of Quality
In 1975, Leatherman Tool Group founder Tim Leatherman was inspired by leaky pipes and a cranky car on a budget trip to Europe -- and thus the idea for his first pocket survival tool was conceived. Since then, Leatherman has become an internationally recognized company with hundreds of employees and a wide variety of durable, versatile, stylish products. Created with bold designs and truly rugged construction, Leatherman products are a perfect addition for tool kits, emergency sets, and glove compartments everywhere.

I have seen this tool pitched for hiking/camping. If you are an avid outdoorsman, get the Charge TTi. The Skeletool is lighter but only by 3.2 ounces (5 compared to 8.2). For that minimal weight savings, you sacrifice having a saw, file, backup blades and a can opener. Seems like a really bad trade off in survival situations.

The Skeletool is a great pocket knife replacement. It is light enough and compact enough to replace your trusty pocket knife. Without even openning the swing arms, you can access the knife (which is very solid) and bottle openner / carabiner. Openning the swing arms provides access to very solid pliers and screwdriver. The screwdriver gives access to 4 screwdriver heads since the removable bits are reversable and the handle stores an extra bit.

The Skeletool would also make a great multitool for IT support people since it has everything that a tech support person might need in a pinch.

Build quailty is great (as I have come to expect from Leatherman). For the minimal size and weigtht of the tool, it provides good functionality. If you carry a pocket knife and/or just need the few tools that the Skeletool provides, I would definately recommend replacing it with the Skeletool (a real set of pliers can be very handy). If you are looking for a toolbox replacement (or as near as you can get with a multitool) or if you are looking for an outdoor survival tool, get the Charge TTi. You will give up too much for the 3.2 ounces of weight savings.

Personally, I have both. I usually carry the Skeletool, but grab my Charge TTi when I need a fully functional multitool.

One of the criterion for a great multitool is versatility, and for the longest time I thought that meant more blades, attachments, and enhancements. While that's partially true, that also means a bigger, heavier footprint. When I finally upgraded to the heavyweight behemoth that is the Leatherman 830160 Surge Pocket Multitool with Leather Sheath and found myself leaving it at home more and more often because of its weight, I realized something was wrong.

The reality is most blades/tool-blades seldom see the light of day outside of camping, and the added weight and size only serve to discourage daily carry. Barring camping or novelty, when was the last time you used your pocket-knife's can-opener? Wood saw? Awl? Corkscrew?? Is there anything you absolutely need scissors for that can't be accomplished with a blade or wire cutter? Do you unconditionally NEED eyeglass-sized screwdrivers on you 24-7?

Most daily applications can be accomplished with a simple blade, a couple drivers, a good set of pliers, and a bottle opener ;). And that's exactly what the Skeletool standard and CX multitools offer.

What makes the Skeletool CX great isn't the *number* of tools, it's the *versatility* of its few, well thought out tools, allowing for a 5 ounces overall weight, slim form-factor, and not one but two carry clips. The standard side-clip is removable (thought cannot be installed in any other positions on the tool) while the carabiner turns out to be far more useful than I'd imagined -- I find myself hanging it on my belt loop most of the time, keeping my belt free of pouches and my pockets comfortably empty.

So, the Skeletool is finally out. It was supposed to have been released November 2007. I've anxiously been awaiting the release (that keeps getting delayed), and finally got it a couple of days ago.

This may not be the most helpful review in the world, but since the tool is pretty minimal there isn't a whole lot to review. It's light (compared to other full-sized tools) but also seems to be very durable and well-made. It also feels comfortable to hold and has an ergonomic design.

The blade on it is quite nice and will replace my Leatherman C301 pocket-knife. It was a tad bit stiff at first, but after a couple of days it opens easily with 1 hand.

I really like the screwdriver bit storage in the handle. The way it works is, you always leave a bit that will be exposed and ready-to-use when the tool is opened (the philips is in when you first get it). The flat-blade bit is stored in the handle. Handy having the screwdriver readily available when you open it.

Overall I would recommend it if you're looking for a quality full-sized Leatherman tool that shaves off a few ounces over some of the heavier alternatives like the Wave. Very nice product!

This is a well designed tool. It's nice to have a "full size" tool that is as light and easy to carry as this. I have a Victorinox Swiss Tool that I love, but it is heavy and requires a sheath and belt (to mount sheath) to wear it comfortably. With the Skeletool, I can just clip it on a belt loop using the carabiner or use the detachable belt clip.

I don't know all of blade metal types, but the blade on the Skeletool is very sharp and appears to hold its edge well. It is nice that it can be opened one handed like a regular pocket knife as well.

The screwdriver bits are nice and the design allows for a solid, comfotable grip when using it as a screwdriver. The phillips style tips seem to narrow to work, but I have found that they do grip the screw head and work fine.

The bottle opener is great. Not only does it work well, but with the springed clip of the carabiner located where it is, it actually holds on to the bottle cap when you remove it.

One note of warning, and thus the 4 start review. It is very easy to pinch the underside of your fingers if not careful with the pliers. I write this review with a significant blood-blister after having the grip of the pliers slip while I was applying force and got pinched.

I love having a multi-tool that covers the basics as well as this one that I can carry around with me so easily.
