I agree, for what is worth after carrying locking knives for several years it's a bit hard to me to go back to slip joints. And the liner lock on the Skelly feels a bit flimsy unfortunately. But I'm sure that's all mental. The lock up does feel solid.
Any new development ?How are you guys liking your free skelly?
That is very generous of you. Alas, I just received one yesterday so hopefully yours goes to someone who needs one.

Just to show off I actually own two Skellys, I love them and sometimes hold one in each hand just to annoy Al Hi Al

Speaking of Skeletools , does anyone have an extra Flathead bit ? I just got a used CX and it's missing the double flat tip bit. I'm trying to avoid buying a whole set just for one bit. (Image removed from quote.)
My weekend: the new cartridge for the leaky bathroom faucet finally came in. With the Skelly I disassembled the handle and replace the cartridge. Later that same day my son told me about a loose shower faucet handle. Tightened it up with the bit extender and a hex key I had stashed around (really need to think about finding a way to edc the LM bit cards I have downstairs) . Ended up doing the same for a few loose drawer handles. I love the tool, and end up carrying with me around me the house as I'm always doing these small odd jobs and that bit extender really reaches in. I haven't even used the extra LM bits yet, have been able to use my other tools that I keep stashed around the house. But I feel reassured that I have it as a back up. My only gripe is that it is not as pocketable as my Mini Tool during work, so the Skeletool stays around the house or goes out with me during my play time. I love my Mini Tool, but no bit extender or Phillips (sigh). I ranted a bit about this in the EDC Philosophy thread. Need to find that dream tool that is Leatherman branded.
