    Colour Name:choose engraving option
    My Skeletool is my first "proper" multitool, bought as a replacement for a semi-novelty keyring/keychain tool I'd been given as a gift.

    I find that a major factor in the usefulness of a tool is having it to hand all the time which, for me, means attaching it to my keys. If it wasn't part of something essential I'd find myself leaving it behind, which would invariably prove to be at the time I really need it. So when I started looking for a replacement tool I initially considered the Leatherman Juice, which is suitably compact, but to get one with all the tools I wanted (corkscrew, file) I'd be looking at the top-of-the-range Juice Xe6, which is a bit strong on price and full of things I wouldn't use.

    So I decided to sacrifice the extra tools and started looking for something more minimalist, which is when I stumbled upon the Skeletool. It's compact and light enough not to be a burden, the carabiner makes it easy to connect to (and, importantly, quickly disconnect from) my keys, it's got the tools that I use most often, and it's about half the price of the Juice Xe6 which must make it the best value tool on the market!

    Apart from the cool and distrinctive looks of the Skeletool, the thing that I've found most beneficial is the excellent quality of the tool. The blade is exceptionally sharp and hasn't dulled at all in my six months of use, and the finish is as tight as the day I got it. The bottle opener is also very good and, when you've got the knack, the carabiner gate grabs the bottle cap once you've opened it, which is a cool (albeit probably unintended) feature.

    There is, however, one obvious downside; there aren't many tools.

    5.0 out of 5 stars My First Leatherman 31 Jan 2009
    By I don't have a pen name TOP 1000 REVIEWER
    Colour Name:choose engraving option
    With an increasing number of jobs to do around the home and garden I started to look for a multi-tool to stop me rummaging around my tool box or garden shed to find what I needed. A mate of mine has The Wave which is undoubtably a quality product, more tools, but of course more weight and double the price of the Skeletool, and I didn't think I'd use all the features the Wave has. The Skeletool covers the basics; Pliers, Wire Cutters, Locking Knife, Drill bits (flat and Phillips) and bottle opener. I found the pliers more comfortable to use than the Wave thanks to the curvature of the body. For the price I'm very happy with the product, it's a quality design and well put together. The 25 year warranty Leatherman provides, proves this will last for many years to come.

    5.0 out of 5 stars A sculpture more than a serious all-rounder 30 July 2008
    Colour Name:choose engraving option
    This is another beautiful object from Leatherman. It isn't as functional as the Wave, so if you're looking for a full set of tools - including a serrated blade and a saw - then you might want to try that. However, it's well built, light and each of the tools works as it should.
    On the plus side: the blade opens with one hand very smoothly, and flips back just as easily; it's light enough that you barely feel it in your pocket; the pliers and wire cutters are sturdy and sharp; the bottle opener is accessible without opening the tool (which I think gives a big hint as to what the manufacturers were expecting this product to be used for most of all). The Skeletool actually feels far more solid than the Wave, which is saying something.
    Cons: No saw, which is handy in the garden and for out-and-about rugged stuff.
    On balance, I think this is a bit of a Leatherman collectors' tool, but worth the price nonetheless.

    3.0 out of 5 stars Doesn't compare well to other Leatherman tools 26 Oct 2009
    Colour Name:choose engraving option|Verified Purchase
    This was my 6th Leatherman tool, having the Squirt, Micra, Juice Xe6, Charge Ti and the Surge. I understand that it only has the basic tools for a lighter load but it sacrifices too much in strength, feeling less substantial than the pocket sized Juice model. It's definitely only for light work.
    The curved handle design means you can't just pick it up any old way, which isn't a great problem but worth mentioning.
    the screwdriver bit sticks out the bottom of the handle and would have been better if it had folded into the tool instead for better storage - the catch was broken on mine when it arrived and the bit just kept falling out.
    The bottle opener seems a bit out of place on this tool (an awl or quick release lanyard like the Charge has may have been more useful).
    There is also the carbiner catch and the pocket clip, which is a little redundant as a lanyard can be threaded through the frame.
    On the plus side it is very light and slim and feels comfortable in your pocket. It's still an interesting looking tool and a clever, if flawed design. Think carefully before buying as Leatherman ask a high price in the UK.

    1.0 out of 5 stars Overprice Cool Looking Junk! 19 Sep 2013
    By GarryT
    Colour Name:choose engraving option
    I bought the skeletool CX because I was taken in by the positive reviews it was getting here and on YouTube, and they do look good. However, I have now had it replaced on two separate occasions due to the pliers's breaking at the jaws. The steel is lightweight and far too brittle for almost any serious task, and it is very easy to lose the screw bit from the handle. The blade steel is good but not brilliant with the handle ergonomics being especially poor when using it as a screwdriver. I suppose the carabina style clip is good if you are going, climbing, fishing or camping, and it does work well as a bottle opener but all in all, it's a vastly overpriced cool looking piece of junk. The Leatherman Sidekick or wingman beats the socks of the skeletool in every way. I ended up spending the extra money and purchasing the Leatherman Wave with the pocket clip due to the poor quality of the Skeletool.

    I honestly don't know how these reviews can be taken seriously, unless of course, the people purchasing this tool are doing it for its looks because it's a pretty poor excuse for a multi-tool.

    This multi tool is nice to use and handy with all the gadgets but it broke in half at the plier joint after a few weeks. Too weak for what it is designed for.

    5.0 out of 5 stars Quality
    Its a Leatherman knife, if you know the brand you know the quality, the pouch was a bit weak compared to the knife. it lacks the quality I have come to expect from Leatherman.
