When it comes to multitools, Leatherman are the true professionals with unequalled build quality and resilience. Often however, multitools can go over the top with functionality and have far more stuff in them than you’ll ever use. This where Leatherman’s latest piece of genius knocks all other multitools into the bin. The Skeletool, aside from looking achingly cool (very important of course) is one of the best multitools ever made.
Weighing in at an amazing 142g, they have stripped out all the unnecessary bulk and ensured that most of the super useful tools are instantly available, without you having to unfold and pull out endless hinged bits with your fingernails. The bottle opener is always out (yeah hey), the screwdriver (cleverly a universal multi-bit one) is pre-extended when you open the tool, and the knife blade is quick release – they really have designed a truly practical beauty here.
More substantial than a pocket knife and less bulky than a traditional multitool, the Skeletool has the following functions – a combination straight and serrated blade, pliers, needle nose pliers, wire cutters, hard-wire cutters, a universal bit driver, a 3/6″ and ¼” Phillips screwdriver bit, a bottle opener and a removable belt clip. And all of this comes in stainless steel with a hardwearing Tungsten DLC coating and has a very comfortable ergonomic hand fit.
With its truly excellent design, exceptional quality and the perfect level of functionality, the Skeletool has raised the bar on multitools to a whole new level.
