Save the costly attorney fees and buy yourself this knife.
Great utility knife and it saved my family. I have owned this for 6 years and sadly lost it recently and I feel like I lost my best friend. This knife has faithfully bailed me out of many of binds when I needed a screwdriver when nary one of the two thousand screwdrivers we own was around. Instead o...

Best Multi-tool of 2022 - GearLab
If the Charge+ TTi gracefully crams as much function into a reasonably sized tool, the Leatherman Skeletool CX is its antithesis. The Skeletool aims for maximum utility from less individual tools, making it more comfortable to carry. This tool only has a fraction of the Charge's features, but it is ...

First Multitool to EDC
Hello,. I think the Leatherman Skeletool CX is a good option because of its size and weight (easily fits in a pocket).
8 Years and going strong
I genuinely love this multitool. It is compact and easy to use for light-duty work. I saw some other review where the pliers were snapping off. Sure, I believe it, but I don't use the pliers for any work that puts that kind of stress on it. Mainly I used this as an everyday carry and bicycle tool. I...

the circle of cheap and valuable
love it. 4:30 - cheap AF (~10€) multitool from a German retail (compareable to wish com) 2020 Edition, that is so bad, I only use it if I have to grab dirrt. 6:00 - Leatherman Skeletool CX, my lightweight allrounder, love it. 7:30 - same as 4:30 but an edition from arround 2000 to 2003. bad, but awesome for the price (~10€) and reliable.

Not quite what I was expecting. The good: -Tool is lightweight and easily clips on and off of belt loop. It's smooth edges won't rip up your belt loop after months of clipping on and off. While being light weight, it isn't too much so that it is a bad thing. -Solid/sturdy feel. Other reviews show th...

Are people over "edc'ing" just to please this page? I won't ever understand the carrying of a multi-tool, a sak and a knife. I don't understand "Students" carrying pry bars, knives, and flashlights. I just don't get office workers carrying multi-tools.
She had her sign, 2 screws, and a hammer. She struggled to accomplish her goal. I approached to let her know these weren't nails she could just hammer into the wood. I pulled out my Leatherman Skeletool out of my EDC bag and used the phillips bit to drive the screws into the wood to hold the sign just as she wanted it.

Wire cutters do not work... I really want to like this multi tool
I was embarrassed this passed weekend. I really was and I wish I could return this tool. While hanging pictures I was installing wire on frame. My mother need to cut the excess wire and I quickly went for my new Leatherman. While I talked up the tool I could not get the wire to cut and would jam up....

Don't buy, POS
This was the second skeletool I have bought. The first was great and I am still using it, I wanted this one because I liked the color pattern more than the blue one I had. I received this one and it felt a little weak but used it as normal. A couple months into use, to my surprise, one of the plier ...

My Leatherman Skeletool is the best multi tool/pocket knife I've ever owned. When I bought it, I had no idea how much I'd be using it.
