Great design, workmanship could be better
on January 28, 2012
I have coveted the Skeletool ever since I first saw it, because of the design aesthetic more than the functionality since I use a Swissarmy Cybertool 41 (which is too heavy to carry in a pants pocket as it wore out one of my pockets and now I just carry it in my bag). The Skeletool has a belt clip which makes the pocket-wear of the Cybertool a moot point.
I paid just under $40 for this Skeletool via Amazon's deal of the week. I would not have bought it otherwise.
I gave this product 4 stars because the workmanship, compared to a Swissarmy knife, was less than perfect: the cutout in the knife blade used to unfold the knife had a slight burr which caused small surface cuts to my thumb; there are also small nicks on a few edges due to mishandling during production.
The instructions on removing the screwdriver bits from the driver could be clearer; the serrated switch needs to be slid back to release the bit.
This model comes with a spare Robertson (square) bit which the Cybertool lacks, so I swapped the flat bit in the holder for the Robertson and the kept the Philips bit in the driver; the flat bit went back into the box.
