Pros:
Locking blade
Strong Pliers
Useful Carabiner clip which doubles as a bottle opener
Construction is sturdy, and design is slick.

Cons:
Comes with 3 bits, but only 2 fit on the tool. One must be carried along separately, or left at home.
Several drilled holes for aesthetics, but could be used for hexagon bolt cut outs. Would increase the number of tools that the Leatherman could replace.

Summary: The Skeletool easily outdoes my old Swiss army knife for basic out-the-go needs while travelling or being away from my tools. It will be mandatory accessory for when I am away from the house and office.

I received this multi tool from one of Amazon's lightning deals, and am very happy with the purchase. I cannot speak on the long term durability of this tool yet, but can say that it is a very well made, sturdy tool, and the knife is very sharp. The tool itself is smaller than I realized, which if perfectly fine as I wanted it to be small. In total, the tool might be 4 inches long, and the blade is about 3 inches long and is not very wide. The blade is sharp, and is half serrated.

**Amazon's description of the item is incorrect**
This item states in the product description that it includes "Large Bit Driver, Robertson 2 and 3 square drive" but no Robertson square bits were included. Amazon says they just post what the manufacturer gives them, and they cannot do anything about it. They were helpful in making it up to me in other ways, but just don't expect to get the square bits when ordering this. For those, you will have to invest further into the 21 piece bit kit, which I am now looking at purchasing.

I did use the screwdriver today, and it is useful but takes a little getting used to as the handles make it a little awkward. It might have been nice if the bottle opener flipped out so that the driver could be used without opening the handles, but it still works fine. It came with two bits, one double sided slot and one double sided Philips. My preference would be to have received 2 bits, one double sided with a 2 and 3 Robertson, and one double sided with a small slot and small Philips.

**People should note that the bits are not your standard size hex bits and you need to have Leatherman bits or they wont fit in the driver**

This knife is good for a telecom technician to carry for emergencies to avoid running to the truck for tools. It has most of the essentials. The cutters cut through cat5 no problem (haven't tried anything harder yet) but the length of the cutting blades is small so it takes two cuts, and it doesn't cut the small string (but the knife would).

Overall I highly recommend this multi tool to those considering something basic and lightweight who need a screwdriver. It is a good small size, but still large enough to be efficient. The fact that it does not include all of the extra pieces that some multi tools do (file, saw, etc) makes this a great option for those of us who don't need the extra tools and don't want the extra bulk for a tool carried daily. If you don't need the driver, the Leatherman Style CS or the Leatherman Freestyle might be more appropriate.

This is my first Leatherman purchase (and first time purchasing any multi tool that cost more than $10). I always say that it is worth while to spend a few extra dollars for the better quality tool, and this is no exception.

Purchased this multi-tool to carry with me every day and its definitely a top notch piece of kit. It covers the basics with needlenose pliers, pliers, wire cutters, hard-wire cutters, combo knife, bottle opener and bit driver. Its made of stainless steel with aluminium inserts, wont rust or corrode and its back by Leatherman's world class 25-year warranty.

I have used and abused the Skeletool for the past couple of years and can definitely recommend it to anyone seriously considering a Leatherman. I had to have the blade replaced after a friend used it for prying. Leatherman's customer service was superb and offered to repair the unit free of charge. My only complaint is that the pliers don't utilize a spring.

If you own this, you are cool.
Compact, light and every useful the skeletool even sounds cool. It's got everything you need on a stripped down multitool, knife, pliers, and even a convenient little beener for clipping it to your belt.
I always want to have a knife on me when I'm in the backcountry, but don't always want bulk. This is great.

Knife came sharp, pliers/wire cutters work well. the screwdriver part came with 3 bits. it was a bit smaller than i thought it would be, but that's fine. Its pretty comfortable in the hand when using it as a knife or pliers. the bottle opener and the carabiner work fine. I'm probably gonna use this thing all the time.

This was a gift for my nephew who would generally have been quite leery of "clunkier" multi-tools. This one is designed to be quite stylish. Very good price, arrived quickly.

My favorite multi tool. It's sleek, portable and easy to use. For once I don't have to be scared of the knife closing on me and biting my hand!

Most useful multi-tool I've ever had. The blade is always sharp and the design is attractive and strong. Great piece of engineering.
