Leatherman Skeletool ReviewLeatherman is renowned name in the outdoor community, and the Leatherman Skeletool lives up to the hype. Designed as the ultimate “basic tool”, the Leatherman Skeletool offers a host of features not found in other multi-tools. The Skeletool certainly proves that there is no substitute for a genuine Leatherman.

Offered in two different versions, the Skeletool and the Skeletool CX, this Leatherman offers a unique screwdriver with interchangeable bits. The bits are stored in the handle, so you don’t have to worry about losing any of the Skeletool’s components. The Skeletool CX features a carbon fiber handle and a serrated blade, which is a slight improvement over the stainless steel handle and straight edge blade found on the standard Skeletool.

Now it’s time for my review of the Leatherman Skeletool. My initial impression of the Skeletool was that it’s clearly a high quality multi-tool. I’ve used many Leatherman’s in my day, but the Skeletool has stability in it that I’ve never found before. Usually when using a multi-tool, the handle digs into your hand or the tool is just plain uncomfortable to use. This is not true with the Leatherman Skeletool. During my review, I tested the Skeletool in multiple different scenarios. Each time I put the Leatherman Skeletool to the test, it would exceed my greatest expectations.

Besides being the most comfortable Leatherman I’ve ever used, the Skeletool was actually the most comfortable pliers of any type that I’ve used. The handle really contours nicely to your hand, allowing maximum pressure to be applied to what you have in the vise. I really cranked on some rusty bolts during the review to see if I could damage the Skeletool, but it only marred up the bolt.

Overall, I would rank my review of the Leatherman Skeletool as 10 out of 10. The Skeletool is clearly the finest multi-tool Leatherman has ever made. I’ve heard clamoring about a new version of the Leatherman Skeletool coming out sometime in 2009, but I’m not sure what they think they can improve on this versatile tool. At any rate, if and when they release the new version, you can be sure that I will be dying to give it a review.
