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.

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.

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.

PROS:
Owned (and still own) for many years and it has never failed me when needed.
Rugged and solidly built body & parts in a small package so it doesn't take up much space.
CONS:
Limited usefulness due to limited capabilities (knife & pliers only).
The price (32.51 USD as of 6:17PM CST 12/30/2014) is a little high for something lacking a little more.

MY THOUGHTS:
Great craftsmanship that comes in a small, but durable frame that will meet and excel simple needs.
Fantastic gift idea for young people (ages 10+) that are mechanically inclined and understand both the privilege and risk of being given a tool that has a knife as a part of it.
Though the price is a bit high for something with such limited capabilities, it is still a Leatherman and, though I used to go for Gerber multi-tools and knives years ago until introduced to Leathermans, the quality will always last....unless I have the misfortune of proving that wrong in the future, still have all phalanges though!

I have provided several pictures with a ruler to help show the length and width of the multi-tool in many positions.

The knife has the following measurements:
Overall Length ~2-3/8 inches
Non-serrated Edge ~1-3/8 inches
Serrated Edge ~1 inch (from 1-3/8" to 2-3/8")

I bought this in hopes of replacing a Swiss Army Knife I have been walking around with for the last 21 years. I figured that I would lose the usefulness of the pocketknife but I would gain a much-needed pair of pliers out of the deal... and since I am 37, I can live without a bottle-opener and a toothpick.

The knife is sturdy and sharp. The pliers "FEEL" good. I was happy with my curvy little gadget.

My car battery died a week ago. Luckily I was in a mall parking lot and Sears was nearby, so I bought myself a new one and I unfolded the Freestyle to get to work.

The bolts on the battery cable were corroded and a little but "cranky", so I had to fiddle with the Freestyle in order to get a good grip. Lots of opening and closing that pair of pliers...

Long story short: after about 5 minutes of fumbling and cursing and opening and closing, the knife wiggled itself loose and sliced the outside of my thumb apart.

TEN stitches later, I'd chock the incident up to my own idiocy if it weren't for the fact that when I described how I cut myself to the E/R doctor, he told me that THE EXACT SAME THING HAPPENED TO HIM WITH THE EXACT SAME KNIFE on a fishing trip he took last summer. He still had HIS scar to prove it!

A multi-tool shouldn't have a blade that swings open that easily, not on a spot on the knife where you will be wiggling your hands a lot.

So my Swiss Army Knife is back in my pocket. I missed the bottle-opener anyway.

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.

If you just want a decent pair of pliers and a pocket knife, this is the best out there, especially at this price point. The problem with most multitools (although I do love my larger Leatherman's and Gerbers) is that for most EDC applications, you really only use the knife and pliers, and their bulk and need for a holster means that you end up leaving them at home.
Looking for somthing smaller and better for EDC I tried the Gerber Dime. While it has it's uses, the pliers weren't strong enough for really anything you need pliers for and it broke quickly. The Freestyle hits the sweet spot between usability and pocketability. While it's larger than the smaller Leatherman's and Gerber Dime, it's still about the same size as many pocket knives I own. The knife is easy to open with one hand and has a secure liner lock; the pocket clip makes it more accessible (no bulky holster like with most multi-tools) .
The pliers were quite stiff at first, but loosened up within a week of working it. The handle on the pliers when open fits the hand well (they've obviously put thought into ergonomics - no sharp bits digging into your hand). That said, I have medium hands, anyone with large hands may find it less comfortable due to it's smaller size.

In summary - if all you need is a knife and pliers, look no further.
