When it comes to EDC multi-tools, few are as popular as the Leatherman Skeletool. Thanks to a functional design and lightweight build, the Skeletool hits that sweet spot for anyone looking to EDC both a multi-tool and a competent folding knife. If you've yet to experience its utility, now is the perfect time to add one to your carry. With a fresh new look in black and stainless steel, it fits seamlessly into the modern EDC aesthetic while retaining its beloved functionality.

Despite its small size the Skeletool packs a punch. Thanks to its compact, skeletonized body it manages to weigh only 5 ounces for ease of carry. You can also access all the tools with one hand, making it perfect for the solo handyman. A key Skeletool feature is its heavy-duty, black-coated 154CM blade with a wharncliffe shape for precision cuts and extensive serration to slice through tough materials like leather and clothing. Its bit driver end comes with a tungsten carbide tip ideal for breaking glass. Its other tools include wire cutters, pliers, and and a carabiner/bottle opener which lets you attach it to a pack or pop open a beverage rounding out its complement of everyday essentials.

The Leatherman Skeletool has long been an EDC multi-tool staple, and the limited black and silver colorway is one of its best looks yet. You can pick one up from the Amazon link below.
