Leatherman Skeletool CX

My new everyday carry knife / multi tool.

It weighs less than my Milwaukee Fastback or Swiss Navy knife. It has a carabiner and pocket clip – which was a must have for me. The tools include pliers, side cutters, screwdriver (Phillips and flat bits) and, of course, a bottle opener.

The only tools I miss from my Swiss Navy knife are the marlin spike, tweezers and toothpick.

I like how the blade can be deployed and put away single-handed. I’m also impressed so far with the build quality. Though, it is all a little tight at the moment. We’ll see how it frees off with time.
