This is the simplest leatherman plier, and the most useful in my opinion. I've owned larger Letherman tools like the wave, that I found were waaay too heavy to carry in a pocket (they are best if you plan to wear them on your belt in a holster). I've owned the juice tool which lacked a sturdy locking blade, and was too thick and heavy due to seldom used tools (micra is better for users considering this tool). I've owned the skeletool which was really nice, but still a touch too big/long to be truly pocketable (skeletool is 20% heavier and 1/2 inch longer, which makes a difference if you keep it loose in your pocket).

This tool is light and small enough to carry in your pocket every day.

The plier is sturdy and only large enough for smaller nuts or objects, around 3/4in or less. Altogh advertised as a "needle nose," it really doesn't fit into tight quarters like a true needlenose. The blade is non serrated so it's easy to sharpen at home. For righties, the blade opens easily one-handed, locks open solidly, and opens when the plier is folded (having to open the plier to access the blade is the major drawback of a lot of larger multitols).

I don't miss the screwdriver included in the skeletool because I have a leatherman micra on my keychain. This tool plus the micra is far more useful than any one tool on the market.

If you really really need the screwdriver bits and you use the pocket clip, the skeletool is probably a better bet, but this tool is more useful to me because I like to keep my pocketknife inside my pocket. A useful sturdy plier, a really high quality blade, and nothing else. If you're considering this item vs the skeletool because your wave is too big, this is the one to own unless you really want to compromise size for a flimsy screwdriver.

I picked this up today for under $30 at Target, which was significantly cheap enough to entice me.

The workmanship of the tool is very good. Fittings are tight and there's no sideways play in the blade or pliers. It does seem quite strong. It's also a very high tech looking tool with an industrial feel.

Out of the package the tools are difficult to open. I certainly couldn't open the knife with one hand, and the pliers were stiff enough that at first it appeared to be locked. Even after twenty minutes spent with WD40 and just opening and closing the pliers are still not fluidly opened. This is likely a consequence of the workmanship however, and I expect it will get better with use.

Second, it looks good, but it seems some form was done in place of functionality. Looking at the picture you can see the blade itself has several holes. The largest one is a thumbslot for opening. Unfortunately, it's difficult to get the right leverage on the blade given the shape and the size of the tool. Also, though the holes reduce the weight by a few grams, they make the blade and tool more difficult to clean and maintain (lubricating oil must be cleaned with a qtip or risk fouling the outside of the tool which can be dangerous). There is no spring assist on the pliers, which means you work it more like a scissors.

Finally, there's only a knife and a pliers on this tool. The Leatherman Micra, though smaller, packs a lot more into the size. It can be argued that the Freestyle tools are more rugged, but unfortunately it exists in that middle ground between compact mini-tool and a proper folding knife/pliers.

As others suggest, there are other tools that cost slightly more that have better functionality.

I love my Freestyle and never go anywhere without it. My boyfriend has the carbon fiber skeletool that I admired, and I set out to find a personal knife of my own. I didn't want a dinky little keychain knife but I didn't want to tote around a machete either. And of course, it had to be aesthetically pleasing.

The Freestyle is all this and more. I don't have the convenience of large pockets that men have, and carrying one in my purse is next to useless. The clip is perfect for slipping into the waist of my jeans or skirt where it stays secure, hidden, and unobtrusive but ready when I need it at the flick of a thumb.

I don't like to give up style or functionality for either of the two, and with the Freestyle I don't have to. I have received many compliments on it, and it has all the quality and style you can expect from a Leatherman. Fellas, buy it for your girl. She will thank you. ;)

I own a number of Leatherman tools, and the Freestyle is another fine addition to my collection. While the pliers aren't as beefy as the ones on the Wave or similar larger tools, they are perfectly capable of most tasks. The blade is a useful shape and holds an edge nicely. The main advantage to this tool is the small size and light weight. Fit's it's nitch very nicely.

This little tool is a great tool - if it's what you're looking for. I've been carrying this daily for 7 months, and use it almost every day; it's rare that a day goes past without me using it for at least something. In August, I decided it was time to retire the Gerber knife I had carried for the past 5-6 years, and replace it with something new. I figured it would be hard to find a knife I liked as much as my old Gerber, but boy, was I wrong. I'm a theatre student, and use my hands every day as a carpenter, an electrician, and an audio technician. I'm also an outdoorsman and spend a lot of time fishing. When buying any knife/multitool, I take both of these into consideration.

First and foremost- this isn't a multitool. It's not the "Leatherman" most people think of when they hear the word. It doesn't even pretend to be. It's a Leatherman KNIFE. And it just happens to have a small set of pliers thrown in. A lot of people complain that these pliers are too small to be any good, and yes, they're too small to replace a set of pliers (or even a larger multitool), but man are they handy to have. I've used these for pulling staples out of wood, hooks out of fish mouths, I've twisted broken screws out of boards, and used them to hold bolts while I loosened nuts, stripped/cut countless wires, pull stuck pins from stage rigging, and hundreds of other things.

It really amuses me that everyone complains that the knife is too small/dull on a multitool, then when they buy a knife, they complain that the multitool aspect of it isn't good enough. I think of this tool and my Leatherman CORE in a very similar way: When I'm in a pinch, and I need a tool in my hand, it's great to have.
