The Leatherman Juice CS4 serves as both my backpacking and everyday multi-tool. It spends most of its life nestled in my cargo pocket or wreaking havoc on loose screws, bolts, and unopened packages. I have touted the benefits to many of my friends and several have purchased this multi-tool. It does a wonderful job and I am glad to have had such a capable and good looking tool but upon somber reflection I have realized that there may be better tools out there now. What made me question my favorite multi-tool? It was a woman and a cheap bottle of wine. It all started on a cold, rainy evening... Today's wine bottles have moved largely to synthetic corks which are far more difficult to remove than real cork. If you use the corkscrew on the synthetic stoppers in conjunction with the lifter it will result in chipped glass on the spout. If you use the corkscrew without the lifter you will just look like an idiot who does not know how to open a bottle of wine. Even some of the dedicated tools used by wine servers are now antiquated due to the increased friction of modern synthetic corks. So unless you find a bottle with the real cork, the corkscrew on the CS4 is not particularly useful. And since I have no plans on relinquishing my cheap wine it would seem that the corkscrew on my CS4 has now become the appendix of my multi-tool. More annoying than the corkscrew is that the flat blade screwdrivers of the CS4 are excessively difficult to retrieve. They have small retrieval grooves for grasping and I find that I almost always cut the top knuckle of whichever finger I use to pry out the screwdriver blade. I say pry because I sometimes need a second tool (keys/coin) to fish them out. This is not a good design.
Though I have been pleased with its performance, if I lost my CS4 it would be replaced by something else. I believe that it would be replaced by either the Leatherman Skelitool or the Gerber Crucial. Both of have screwdrivers, pliers, a knife,(my most used tools) are half an ounce lighter, and neither of them have a corkscrew. They do lack the wood saw and the scissors. They do however have locking blades (a feature that I would greatly appreciate), and have a removable pocket/belt clips. Though the Crucial looks better, the winner in my mind is the Skelitool because it has replaceable bit drivers giving it more versatility and reducing the worries about using the flathead as a pry tool. If you love the form factor or the vibrant colors the Juice series, the S2 is a nice choice. It omits the corkscrew and the wood saw but shaves an ounce in the process. It also comes in a nice, easy to see if dropped, orange color.
-Nice tool selection
-Only 5.5 ounces
-Construction seems good
-Blade does not lock
-Corkscrew does not work on synthetic corks
-Flathead drivers difficult to retrieve
A low four stars. I like this multi-tool but I feel that there are better options in the 5oz market such as the Skelitool or the Juice S2.
