Product Description

Product Description

The Leatherman Freestyle is great as a stand-alone device or a companion for those activity-specific tools that don't feature pliers or a knife.

Amazon.com

For the adventurer seeking a compact multi-tool that packs a serious punch, the Leatherman 831078 Freestyle Multi-tool fits the bill. This versatile multi-tool features durable DLC-coated stainless steel construction with a pair of wire cutters, a dual-action set of pliers, and a blade that can be easily opened with one hand.

The Leatherman 831078 Freestyle Multi-tool includes:
  • 420HC stainless steel clip-point combo straight/serrated knife
  • Needlenose pliers
  • Regular pliers
  • Wire cutters
  • Hard-wire cutters


Add a pocket-size frame and an outside-access blade to the list of conveniences.View Larger.


For superior durability, the body is stainless steel with a Zytel handle insert.View Larger.
Premium Blade Holds Edge Three Times Longer
The Freestyle CX boasts long-lasting, multi-purpose strength in a pocket-size 3.45-inch frame. This multi-tool features DLC coating for scratch and corrosion resistance as well as a 154CM stainless steel blade that will hold its edge three-times as long as a traditional stainless steel knife. A carbon-fiber handle insert allows the CX to offer a superior strength to weight ratio.

Designed for Superior Control, Power, and Comfort
Designed to act as your "go to" pocket knife without giving up multi-tool functionality, the CX boasts an ergonomic grip to ensure comfort and ease of use. The outside-accessible blade is easily opened with just one free hand, so while you're holding the fishing line or the flashlight in one hand, you can swiftly make cuts with the other. The CX's two-in-one needlenose/standard pliers sport both hard and regular wire cutters.

The CX also includes a removable clip, allowing you to store it on your belt or pocket for easy access at all times. Whatever the adventure, the CX is the ideal tool for powerful functionality in a portable package.

The CX is covered by a 25-year warranty.

About Leatherman: Time-Tested Tools
On a low-budget trip through Europe in 1975, recent college graduate Tim Leatherman faced a number of impromptu "fix-it" situations that his traditional pocket knife couldn't help with. Over the next eight years, Tim used his engineering background to produce countless designs and hundreds of prototypes for the tool he wished he'd had on that trip.

In 1983, the original Leatherman Pocket Survival Tool hit the market. By 1993, Leatherman was selling more than one-million tools a year. Thanks to their durability and versatility, Leatherman products--which now include multi-pliers, knives, pruners, and LED lights--are a mainstay of tradesmen and women, sailors, fishermen, hunters, backpackers, scouts, and do-it-yourselfers the world over.

What's in the Box

I've been carrying a Leatherman Tool for well over two decades, and have used it at least once every day I've carried it. I've carried a Leatherman Wave for the last ten years, and it's served me rather well that entire time.
When they came out with the Skeletool, it looked too awkward for me with the large carabiner clip, so I decided against trying to upgrade to it. This appeared to be approximately the same tool minus the clip, so I pulled the trigger on buying it.
The knife blade is well placed and easy to open, which has always been a major failing of the Wave series and I'm rather happy with it.
The pliers on the other hand are kind of awkward and thin looking. Unlike the previous Leatherman tools, I don't feel as comfortable using them as casually on tough jobs. While their design does lend more toward a more comfortable carry the handles are too short and the curve makes for a clumsy handhold on them.
I would have preferred that they retained the bit driver that was on both the Wave and the Skeletool.
Overall, I do occasionally carry this, but view it more as a pocket knife than anything else, and that's just not why you carry a Leatherman. It tends to stay on my nightstand more often than not and I've gone back to my Wave almost exclusively.
I realize they can't all be winners, and I'll still look forward to the next tool they release.

I was looking for a lightweight multi tool to take on long hikes. On the whole, I'm satisfied. The tool is smaller than I expected, but is is very well built and the blade is excellent. Although Leatherman claims that the Freestyle is a combination of 5 tools, any reasonable person will find 2: A knife and pliers.

I love Leatherman, and when I first heard about this product, I thought it would be for me. I own/have owned several LM tools, including the Skeletool. I thought that a product that was a one-handed opening knife along with pliers would be perfect. In reality, it was too bulky for the limited functions that it offers. I much prefer my Skeletool because of the carabiner/bottle opener and bit driver. If the Freestyle wasn't so bulky, maybe I would have liked it better. But it's not much of a size increse to go with a Skeletool, Juice, or even a Charge/Wave. And those tools have so many more functions.

I just bought this knife to take out fishing with me and it worked great. The blade is very sturdy and sharp and locks rock solid. The pliers works very well and the wire cutter had no problem cutting a hook in half. Small. Lightweight. Simple. It's about time leatherman made something so simple and solid.

First let me say that I was happy when I received my freestyle, it was exactly as i expected. The plier hinge could use a little grease, but i took care of that. I liked it so much, that I started carrying it in my pocket all the time, instead of my pocket knife. I was shocked to find out that after a few days, the blade started to rust! I have never had this happen to any knife or multi-tool that I have carried. I don't know if they had an issue with their supplier or what, but I'm pretty disappointed in the quality of the knife.

The Freestyle is a stripped down, high style pocket sized multitool from Leatherman.

I have a dozen or more multitools from Leatherman, Gerber, Swisstool and chinese knock-offs. My all-time favorite has been the Juice S2. I've carried one in my pocket for more than a dozen years. I bought the Freestyle just to try out a minimal tool for awhile.

The Freestyle is a modern looking tool with a nice pair of pliers and a nice locking blade on the exterior. The problem with the freestyle is that it has limited functionality, but isn't as compact and lightweight as Leatherman's previous offerings.

What I like about the Freestyle:

- The looks - it looks cool just sitting on my desk.

- The exterior, one hand opening, locking knife blade - hard blade holds a good edge (see cons below)

- The pliers - have great ergonomics and a tight joint. They grip well and I can bear down on them hard - a clear step up from my juice tool.

What I don't like:

- The size and weight. For a smaller size and weight, my Juice S2 tool has many more functions than the Freestyle. I understand this is a low priced tool, so the lack of functions is a given, but it seems like it should be a bit lighter with fewer functions.

- The blade has a weak spot. I found it and snapped it off at the first lightening hole past the thumb hole. I don't think I was abusing the tool, I just think the blade is either too hard, or not strong enough for this size tool. I'm sure Leatherman would fix it if I sent it in, because they have an excellent warranty, however it doesn't seem to be worth my time to send it in.

Sorry Leatherman, I love your tools in general, but the Freestyle is more flash than function for me. It's not terrible, or unusable, but there are better products in the Leatherman line.

Have had the tool for one month and this are my impressions:
Plus:
-Small package, it comes with a clip so you can carry it in your pocket
-for the size it comes with a relatively good pliers:
-you can cut and bend 14AWG wire easily with it
-wire stripper is fine
-the mechanism for opening the knife with one hand works great, be careful the first times because the knife is really sharp
-locking mechanism works great and it is easy to use
-you can both open and close the knife with one hand
-the serrated plain combo blade is fine
Cons:
-it may get small rust stains both in the blade and the body of the tool, I have two victorinox saks and they never ever have had a rust stain, NEVER, one star less for this reason

Will I buy it again? yes(maybe I will prefer the CX version instead of this one); even with the rust problem it is a well adjusted, nice looking, small and useful multi tool that you can carry in your pocket without being bothersome
