The sleek new Leatherman Skeletool CX gets you back to basics... very cool basics. The Skeletool CX has only the most necessary of multi-tool features, because sometimes that's all you need. With a 154CM stainless steel blade, pliers, bit driver, pocket clip and carabiner/bottle opener, you're set. Lightweight, low volume, perfect size. The Skeletool CX: who says more is better?

Skeletool® CX Tools

  1. Needlenose Pliers

    A cast pinching tool with an angled nose for holding or manipulating materials, ideal for small objects or tight spaces.

  2. Regular Pliers

    A cast pinching tool for holding or manipulating materials.

  3. Hard-wire Cutters

    Bypassing cutting blades ideal for cutting hard wire.

  4. Wire Cutters

    420 HC stainless steel bypass cutting blades, meant for cutting regular-gauge wire.

  5. 154CM Knife

    A knife crafted from 154CM, a high-carbon, high-alloy, and corrosion resistant stainless steel that holds its edge three times as long as 420 stainless steel.

  6. Carabiner/Bottle Opener

    This tool features a one way gate and allows for easy clipping to a belt loop or strap. It can also be used to pop the top on a favorite beverage.

  7. Large Bit Driver

    This driver slot holds any of the full-size Leatherman tool bits in place and allows the user to exchange bits for different jobs. Not intended for the eyeglass screwdriver tip.

Skeletool® CX Features

  1. Carbon-fiber Handle Insert

    The use of carbon-fiber for the handle insert helps to maintain handle strength and rigidity while keeping the overall weight of the tool to a minimum.

  2. Handle Bit Storage

    Conveniently store Leatherman tool bits in the handle of your multi-tool for easy access in the middle of a job, or for safe keeping when not in use.

  3. Locking Blade

    A knife blade that locks into place when fully deployed. A user must manually unlock the blade to fold it away, which allows for a much safer user experience.

  4. Replaceable Pocket Clip

    A removable clip which allows the user to wear their multi-tool attached to a pocket or belt loop without the use of a sheath. By removing the clip, the user is able to easily carry their tool in a sheath if preferred.

  5. Outside-accessible Features

    This multi-tool features tools that are accessible while the tool is in its folded or closed position, mimicking the functionality of a pocket knife.

  6. One-hand Operable Features

    Every feature on this tool can be opened and operated with one hand. This enables the user to keep the other hand free for situations that require multi-tasking or a free hand.

Comments about Skeletool CX:

I've had this tool for a little over a month now, and I couldn't be happier with it. I find I am using it on nearly a daily basis while at work. I also own the MUT which I keep in my bag or on my gear for the field and heavier duty projects, but I needed something smaller for the daily grind. This tool is perfect for that.

The only con I have is it didn't come with a belt sheath (which I just ordered). I find it is slightly uncomfortable in my pocket, so the belt clip has come in handy. While I have had no retention issues with it clipped on my belt, I ordered the sheath just for a piece of mind.

Comments about Skeletool CX:

ExcellenT tool. Great design.
However, within one week of owning it I noticed the screwdriver was missing. Somewhere along the way it slipped out while the tool was closed.

Comments about Skeletool CX:

I carry it everyday clipped to the front pocket of my pants. I wish the edges were rounded more and the knife had no holes other than the opening hole. The driver bit is also not covered enough; if I have the straight blade on my hand catches on it when I reach into my pocket.

Otherwise, this thing is amazing.

      Comments about Skeletool CX:

      Going through Airborne School now. I've had this tool for a few months now. I purchased one right before I went out on a Field Training Exercise where very few of my multi-tools have survived. Got through a 5 day field training out in the woods in Fort Benning, GA. Absolutely exceptional. Cuts through ropes, vines, roots, and zip ties like butter. It has a pocket clip so you don't have to have it hanging on your belt or bouncing around in your pocket. I've had it for 3 months now and have used it almost every day since I've had it and the blade has barely dulled if at all since the day I got it. Absolutely phenomenal product. Won't be purchasing any other type of multi tool.

          I was pleasantly surprised when this tool came in the mail. It is very durable and well designed. I did think it was a little heavy for backpacking so I think I will be getting a Juice for that. Overall great product!

              Comments about Skeletool CX:

              I had the tool for about 2 weeks and when i was unfolding the blade, the screw head holding it on broke off, causing the blade to spring off the tool into my hand. I have a broken tool and a sliced open hand now. The CX is really disappointing, I've had Leatherman products that last years, and this didn't make it a month.

                I ordered a little while ago and it came on time no problem. When i got it, I was a little disappointed that the knife didn't have more tools. But the knife itself is beautiful to use and the tools it has are very well designed and built. the carbon fiber is a little silly to me now. It serves no function exempt to look cool.

                      The knife blade is very hard. After using it as a scraper, there was no discernible damage or wear to the blade. It is sharpened on both sides, which is a plus compared to the smaller tools. The pliers are strong and the grips easy to use. Also, these do not have the pinch point between the handles that I find to be a real problem in using the Wave. The knife blade has sharp edges on the spine that may skin the hands and cause excessive wear to one's pants. I've rounded those using a fine hone.

                          I carry this baby with me all the time. It's always in my pocket while I'm out on video shoots, around the house, or surviving in the woods this baby never leaves my side.
