Description

Dude, if Skeletor had a Skeletool, He-Man would be skeletoast.

Weighing in at just 5 ounces yet still packing the crucial tools, the Leatherman Skeletool crushes other multi-tools into bone dust. This four inch multi-tasker with a stainless steel blade might save your life, or it might just help you look cooler. Leave the paper clips, mullets, defusing bombs, and hostage rescues to Angus MacGyver, and carry the Leatherman Skeletool for daily use.

Its pros and con's.
Its pros and con's.

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

This tool is sharp!! Knife came very sharp. Minimal tools if you want a multi-tool item. It is heavy and has a clip if you want to clip it to a belt buckle. I say it is heavy. Its not heavy for the tools it has but is for a multi-tool item. I use it weekly. But I think there are better options out there. the knife is razor sharp. Truly. Cuts paper.

Step up

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

I usually carry a Gerber Paraframe around with me. I wanted something that I could take with me that offered more than a blade, but didn't give me 45 other useless tools. This is the tool. I don't notice a bulge in my pocket, and it is light.

Great piece of equipment!

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

I use this tool for so many things! Bought it a couple weeks ago and couldn't be happier! The knife comes super sharp too! Definitely would recommend if you're looking for a small useful tool.

Minimalist Multi-Tool

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

Mine now sits somewhere in the depths of Flaming Gorge, but I loved it while it was around. I really liked this because it is a straight-to-business model without all the extra bullsh*t you'll never use.
If you prefer your multi-tools equipped with a magnifying glass and a spork, this isn't the one for you.

Just what I wanted

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

I have worked as a river guide for a bunch of year now and have had and lost many multitools I love this one because it's a knife first. The screwdriver bits lock in and can't just fall out. The bottle opener is easy to use and it can be secured very well when needed with the caribineer. This is everything I wanted with nothing extra added.

Surprised how much I use this thing

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

I love this multi. I initially bought it as a back up stashed in my car or pack. I now keep this in my pocket all the time. It has really come in handy for quick work and is so light you won't mind carrying . None of the bells n whistles, but all the basics.

Great Everyday Carry tool

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

I just got the Skeletool a few weeks ago and love it. So sleek and light. It is easy to forget it is clipped to your pocket. Knife is sturdy and sharp. The perfect tool.

Love this knife!

I had one a few years ago, but lost it in a river. The new one I purchased came with a combo blade, so serrated on the back half, and straight edge on the end half. These will get just about anything done that you might need while out in the backcountry, and even around town!

Always Carry.

Big fan of the Skeletool and Leatherman products in general.
Having owned multiple Leatherman products and iterations, I can say that this is my 2nd favorite (1st being the Skeletool CX). The design is simple, intuitive and has all of your essentials: Screwdriver w/interchangeable bits, knife, bottle opener, belt clip, pliers & wire cutters.

This isn't overly fancy and overloaded with unnecessary items (do you really need itty bitty tweezers?) like some other multitools. It has the essentials and that's it (yes, bottle openers ARE essential), If you find that you need anything other than what's provided in this tool, you might want to look towards actual workshop grade tools and devices. I always carry my CX version on my and this one in the glove compartment of my car.

Highly recommended.

Is the blade on this serrated?

No, the main blade is not serrated, at least on mine anyway. But, from the photo above, it looks like it is..?

Always Carry It

From keeping it safe in my minimal climbing backpack to having it handy while backpacking and backcountry skiing, this thing is always with me in the outdoors. I like many snagged it because of its look, but as most Leatherman tools are it's always useful in a pinch. I also like that it is fairly minimal and very light as well. Highly suggested.

I use this everyday

This Skeletool is great. The blad stays very sharp even after rugged use on a daily basis. The pliers work great in every situation. I wouldn't own anything else to put in my pocket. I know this bad boy won't break down on me when I need it.

Spartanic

Lightweight, minimalistic, idiot proof.
I hadn`t the opportunity to test it intensively so far but the quality seems good (would like to know where it was manufactured)
The amount of tools is very minimalistic but that`s ok, i never leave the house without a Viktorinox "Forester" so both together form an unbeatable team.

great multitool - man with skills

this is a great tool, and helps you get out of scrapes, save the day, or simply tighten a loose screw that you happen to discover. It has a great knife, that is fast to get to, much better than PST leatherman models that you had to open the tool, then get the knife out. also locks.... like i said... its a great knife.
I have broken the third jaw. twisting something with the jaw is not advised, it will snap the jaw off. but return them to leatherman, and they will help you out, and send you a new one. whats better than a great multitool? one with a warranty for 25 years.....

Outstanding Quality

My father gave one of these to me as one of my graduation gifts from college, and I absolutely love it. The tool is clipped to my pocket everyday. I used to keep a single blade, but the lightweight Skeletool has taken its place for good. I primarily use the bottle opener function, but the blade has remained very sharp over the year that Ive had it and I still have both screw bits that it originally came with. I didnt know about the additional bits package so Ill have to look into that. If you want a lightweight tool with the essentials, then pick this tool up.

A functional work of modern art

I have 4-5 other multi-tools, but couldn't resist buying the Skeletool as it looks so cool. And, I haven't been disappointed as it is the favorite of my collection. One nice feature of it is that you can quickly and easily open the knife, which is the most common tool that I use. The blade can be opened one handed, which is a great feature. Like all Leatherman tools, the fit, finish and overall design are excellent. The pliers close down perfectly at the tip, which means they can almost be used as tweezers.

The screwdrivers are OK and totally functional, but a bit skinny and lightweight for something like tightening a ski binding screw, but still, they would work.

My initial impression on opening the box was that the Skeletool was smaller than I expected. This is no big deal, but for some reason photos of it make it look beefier. For reference, the knife blade is 2.5" long, which is about 3/4 the length of a credit card.

The thing I liked least about it was the add-on bottle opener/clip hook on the end. I can open bottles many other ways, don't need a secondary clip-in point (the tool already has a side clip) and it just adds length to the unit, as well as a sharpish tail end. But, Leatherman has come out with a new model, the Freestyle, which is the same thing as the Skeletool sans bottle opener. I'll probably have to get that one as well. :)

The bottle opener/clip hook does come in handy clipping the knife to a harness though.
