Skeletool is my most used tool around the house. My basic needs are a knife, pliers and a screwdriver and this tool fits the bill. It has one bit driver and two two-sided bits (different size flat/phillips). One is on the bit driver and one slips into the handle.

Skeletool isn't those tools that features a toolbox full of different tools but relies on three basic tools. This makes it very light and a pleasure to carry around.

The original Skeletool featured straight blade but nowdays the serrated blade from Skeletool CX is found on Skeletool and vice versa. Skeletool and Skeletool CX are identical except for the blade and the frame. CX has some Carbonfiber decorative plate, but it is actually just as light as the plain Skeletool.

If you only need these three tools, Skeletool is your goto multitool.

I have loved Leatherman since I was a boyscout, and have owned several since then. I still own several today, but this is my go to outdoor knife. I love to hike with this guy in my pocket, sleek and low-profile it never gets in my way. I love the minimalist features of this knife, it really has everything you need for the outdoors, and none of the paranoid things that you don't. It is great for fish too! I love the lightweight frame of the knife, and the carabeaner function. Overall it has been my favorite addition to my every expanding Leatherman family.

Leatherman Skeletool:

I carried the skeletool for over a year as part of my EDC. It's an ok multi-tool if you don't normally use much for tools on a regular basis.

The pliers are ok but the first hard work I put them through they twisted a bit and I was unable to get them to twist back into propped alignment. The wire cutters never really worked to well at all so I didn't use them to much. It comes with 3 bits but can only carry two bits at one time. One bit in the screw driver and one in the spare slot for carry. The other bit gets put somewhere and lost so hopefully it's not a bit you need haha. The blade on the skeletool came pretty sharp and is easy to sharpen. The best thing I think about this multi-tool is the fact it is very light weight. I replaced the skeletool with the Leatherman Blast and I never looked back. If your looking for a light duty multi-tool and don't plan on doing anything more than light duty tasks than it's certainly worth looking at the skeletool, but if there is a chance you will be using it for medium to heavy tasks then go with the leatherman blast, or wave.
