Another Great Leatherman Product "Multitool that looks like a pocket knife"
on June 13, 2010
As always high quality and sturdy feel from Leatherman. The 154cm blade is FANTASTIC! Very sharp out of the box and holds edge great. Best blade steel I've ever owned. The E33B is worth the extra $$ just for the blade. It has the same tools as Skeletool except for the pliers. It is also only slightly smaller than the Skeletool but longer if you have the carabiner out. This tool is definitely a little fatter than the average pocket knife (also a little fatter than the Skeletool but lighter). Very portable but you will know you have it on you. The blade and the carabiner both lock into place. The carabiner has to be pushed back straight into the handle to unlock it and then folded(no instructions for that). The screw driver snaps in place with a distinct click but can be folded back by just a good stiff push. The hidden compartment for the extra screwdriver bit is really nice. Comes with one double sided philips and one double sided flat bit. The belt clip is the only part that seems a little weak/flimsy it is removable if you have the tool for it. This is my 2nd favorite multitool next to my Skeletool CX. I got my E33B from Amazon for $40 and would highly recommend at that price. Leatherman made in the USA always a plus. Forgot to mention the "blade launcher". It sounds like assisted opening but is not. There's a bump protruding out of the back of the handle that is part of the blade. You run your finger over it to get the blade out / started. Still need a slight flick of the wrist to get the blade out completely most of the time even after practice.
