Introducing the Brand New Skeletool from Leatherman
Now you're ready to lighten your load and boost your survival skills -- with Leatherman's Skeletool. At a mere 5 ounces the new, full-sized multitool keeps weight and volume to a minimum without sacrificing quality and true functionality, and that's what the Skeletool is all about. Many multitools have multiple options, but theyre often heavier -- and they're loaded with more features than most people actually need on a regular basis. Conversely, pocket knives are light and streamlined, but they render themselves useless when the task calls for a more versatile tool. Enter the new Skeletool platform, offering minimal weight, compact size and endless capabilities. And with the Skeletool's integrated, removable pocket clip, you can easily clip this tool onto a belt, a pack, or a vest -- with no sheath or tote required.
Key User Features
The Skeletool CX has a large knife blade that can be accessed while the tool is closed; to open it, just place your thumb in the thumbhole at the base of the blade and rotate it out until it's fully extended -- which will engage the safety lock. This locking mechanism is noted with a padlock symbol on the tool. To unlock the blade, press the locking mechanism towards the handle until the blade slides past the lock.
Equipped with a universal bit driver, the Skeletool offers real utility options like no other multitool. To change the tool bits, simply unfold the tool and remove the bit from the bit driver -- and pop it out. And replacing bits is just as easy. Just press a new one into position and you're good to go. There's even a spare bit located in the handle side opposite the knife blade. This tool includes the following bits: Phillips #1 and #2, screwdriver 3/16-inch and 1/4-inch.
In the plier jaws you'll find a hard-wire cutter and a regular wire cutter. The regular wire cutter is great for softer grades of wire, but the hard-wire cutter is excellent for heavier jobs -- like cutting and bending fishhooks.
The Skeletool keeps it simple -- and light, and compact, and easy to transport. Why waste time with pointless, heavy add-ons when all the basics are right at your fingertips? With its open hardware, skeletal design and hardy appearance, the Skeletool boasts a premium stainless steel blade, pliers, a universal bit driver, and a carabiner/bottle opener ... and that's it.
Key Tech Specs:

- Weight: 5 ounces/142 grams

The Leatherman Tool Group and its History of Quality

Since then, Leatherman has become an internationally recognized company with hundreds of employees and a wide variety of durable, versatile, stylish products. Created with bold designs and truly rugged construction, Leatherman products are a perfect addition for tool kits, emergency sets, and glove compartments everywhere.

The skeletool fits my needs perfectly, weighing a light 5.1 ounces. The knife can be accessed from the outside of the tool (a must have for me), and the tools on the Skeletool are paired down to be the essentials of what you need for everyday use. The pliers are strong, the wire cutters function flawlessly. It feels good in the hand and looks elegant (to me).
I made the mistake of not doing my research at first and buying a multi tool called the Crucial by Gerber before I bought my Skeletool. While similar in function, the form factor, ergonomics, weight, and quality were just...lacking in the Crucial. It was heavier, the pliers were weak, and really the only plus was that I could access the two (non swap-able) drivers with one hand.
Back to the Skeletool. The only complaint I have, and the reason for four stars is the locking system for the driver heads. There is a small tab that rocks in and out to tighten/loosen the drivers. I have had it come loose in me a few times, but since I became aware of how it functions, it hasn't given me any issues.
Bottom line: If you want a quality multi tool for edc, small repairs around house, shop, and that simply WORKS, you will not be disappointed with the Skeletool.
About the tools...
The knife blade is large enough and convenient enough to access one-handed that it can easily replace a standalone folding knife without feeling like a disappointing compromise that sacrifices functionality. Some will prefer the straight edge of the CX model over the combo edge (partly straight and partly serrated) on this standard version--and usually, I would too--but in this case, this is one of the better designed combo edges I've owned. There is enough straight edge to handle slicing. The blade is also thicker than the standard fare blade on other multitools, which is particularly refreshing. This knife doesn't just cut well; it feels durable. (That doesn't mean you should use it for prying, though! Respect the blade and use it properly!)
The pliers are robust enough that you can use them for light to medium tasks without fear of breakage. (No, you shouldn't use them for extracting lag bolts from dense wood or something really heavy like that, but for common and likely daily chores that spring up unexpectedly, they are outstanding.) The pliers are also precise enough that I don't miss the tweezers on some of my Swiss Army knives and other multi-tools (the jaws match up so precisely that I've been able to use them to extract slivers nearly as easily as I can with a proper tweezers!). That was a very pleasant surprise, as a tweezers is one of the most frequently useful tools I use on any multi-tool.
The driver and two included bits (a double-sided Philips size 1 and 2, and a double-sided flathead size small and medium) are well designed and work great for tightening/loosening the most common-sizes of screws, as well as some light scraping/prying (with the flathead bit). It's also possible to buy or make adapters that extend the functionality further by increasing the reach of the drivers or allowing you to attach standard 1/4" hex bits, although I find that entirely unnecessary and somewhat at odds with the minimalist intent of this tool. Why get a Skeletool and then add bulk and weight? If you're going to do that, you should be looking at the Wave, Surge, Mut, or other more fully-featured multi-tools.
In short, this is probably the single best-designed multi-tool in existence for daily pocket carry for most people. You'll always have a great blade, very good pliers/cutters, good bit driver, good bottle opener, and adequate scraper (using the square driver bit). The only glaring omissions that some people are likely to miss are a more robust and purpose-designed scraper/pry tool or possibly a scissors. A proper tweezers is usually top of list for me too, but so far, I've found the pliers actually provide almost as good utility because of how precisely the jaws come together at the tip (hopefully, that will remain the case over time).
In short, for people wanting a lightweight, well-functioning multi-tool, this one is HIGHLY recommended. In my opinion, the only other worth comparing it with, if you want more tools, is the Juice S2, but I prefer the Skeletool.
maybe I got a defective one?
Update: Seller sent me a new one and I’ve been using that one for the last couple months without issue.
No useless saw
Inexpensive for a leather man
Only the tools you need
No straight blade
I bought this tool about 2 weeks ago on the recommendation of some fellow techs on r/sysadmin. It's truly the perfect tool for a computer guy. It has everything you need and nothing you don't. I've found the pliers to be great and fine tipped enough for some occasions when I'd normally be reaching for needle nose pliers. The wire cutters work great for zip ties. The bit driver is the best of any multi tool I've used. Putting one arm of the tool at a 90° angle for some extra torque; I've been able to mount things to drywall and even plywood.
The knife is sharp and despite its futuristic look it is very comfortable in the hand.
I will be purchasing more bits for the driver in the future.
My only complaints are the lack of a straight edge blade (what the hell do people need serrated blades for?) and the fact that it has been almost painfully stiff to open the pliers. That being said, I'd much rather have it too stiff than loosey-goosey.
The Leatherman Skeletool, the official multi-tool of "did you try turning it off and back on again?"
I work as a technician in an entertainment complex and the skeletool has everything I need in a pinch. With the pocket clip, it’s always on me. The driver bits are interesting as they’re flatter than any you’d use in a drill, but they’re just as effective. The pliers are a perfect size for most of my needs. I have a tool bag to fit any demand, but in a pinch these work great. I’ve never been a “knife guy” but I like the ease of this blade. It opens very easily with one hand. It’s a strong blade and the serrated portion has been a god-send a few times.
An interesting aspect is it’s build. It has layered metal pieces that give the illusion that there are more tools. But this isn’t an everything tool; it’s just a few tools. But what you get are great. No frills nor waste.
Again, it all comes down to your needs. But if you’re someone who cannot always carry your tools with you, I recommend the Skeletool.
