User Review: Leatherman Skeletool CX
Excellent multitool, nice contemporary design, the pliers are very strong. Not as light as I'd expected.
- Excellent pliers
- Sharp blade
- Clip-on a very handy feature
- Nice design
- Blade could be a little bigger
- No scissors or tweezers
A nice contemporary design, the clip-on feature is very handy. I use this knife when I go hiking in trout fishing season, the needle pliers are just perfect for carefully extracting lures. The blade is very sharp, but could be a little larger.
The only features I miss, that are on my Swiss Army multitool, are a small pair of scissors, and a pair of tweezers — very useful for extracting those tiny splinters and thorns from fingertips. It's also a bit heavier than it appears at first glance. The cut-outs don't actually save much weight.
The driver bits are tucked away cleverly, although they can be a bit fiddly to extract with cold hands.
