Tool Spotlight: Skeletool RX

If you’re a person whose job it is to save lives, the Skeletool® RX is for you. The design DNA of the Skeletool® RX starts from one of our most popular multi-tools, the Skeletool®. The Skeletool® RX borrows the compact, lightweight, and ultra-portable design of the original and evolves it to equip EMTs, first responders, and other uniformed professionals with a multi-tool geared towards emergency rescues.

Some of the specialized features that distinguish the Skeletool® RX from other multi-tools are the 154CM serrated blade and a carbide glass break bit. Both are meant to help cut through tough materials as well as break glass to rescue someone. Another less obvious asset of the Skeletool® RX is the bright red color (only offered on the RX) which makes it more visible if it’s accidentally dropped during an emergency rescue operation.

Here are a few more reasons why the Skeletool® RX may be the perfect tool for you. 



The serrated blade is made of a premium material which means the edge stays sharp longer. The deeply serrated blade gives you more cutting surface to slice through textured materials like clothing and seat belts.

Many of the Skeletool® RX’s features can be accessed and used with one hand, keeping your other hand free. It’s also designed to work easily even if you have gloves on, so your hands can be even more protected in an emergency situation.

Make quick extractions from vehicles faster and easier with the durable carbide glass breaker bit. The only Skeletool® to include this unique feature.

At only 5 ounces, the slim, lightweight design of the Skeletool® RX makes it easy to carry in your pocket; especially with the built-in pocket clip. Or you can put it in a sheath and carry it on your hip. Either way, you've got options.

Maintain and adjust your equipment with regular and needlenose pliers as well as a large bit driver. Store your tool bits in the handle of the multi-tool for easy access in the middle of a job, or for safe keeping when not in use.
