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.

It feels good in the hand and looks elegant (to me)
I purchased the Skeleton for my job (I work for a construction company in the shop) and perform a lot of maintenance when I just need something at hand immediately to get the job done.

Just the essentials...

Best Leatherman Tool!
I have six different styles of Leatherman tools and this is the best I've had for every day carry. The size is perfect for pocket carry but still beefy enough to be useful.

Goods and bads
Had this tool for years now. Pros: If you modify the knife (see photo) it's easy to get to and open. If a knife is what you use 90% of the time, check this out.

Made to last
The Skeletool has everything I need in a light weight design. The blade is razor sharp and the pliers are very strong. It is a very well made tool and should last for many years.

Best tool for a computer tech period.
Pros: No useless saw Inexpensive for a leather man Only the tools you need Cons: Very stiff 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'...
