GEAR – Leatherman lightweight multitool – Skeletool

Joel “Boing Boing Gadgets” Johnson has just posted this Leatherman Skeletool, a full-featured Leatherman tool whose every non-essential surface has been swiss-cheesed with holes to lighten its weight to a mere five ounces. It costs $72 — or you can go lighter with a carbon-fiber model for $96.

I miss my multitool days — after losing half a dozen to the TSA, I had to give up a years-long habit of always carrying one. Since there, there must have been one billion moments where I wished I had my pliers, knife, and hoof-pick still attached to my hip.

  1. Looks like the version you’ve shown is the carbon-fiber model, with its black handles. I’m more intrigued by the look of the new skeletool, which I first read about for here:

    Are you guys getting the same kind of praise-singing responses? Should I look into getting one? What about the carbon-fiber model?
