The Skeleton Crew

 :skull:   :D

That's two of my favourites you've chosen there, JA.  I'd carry the Skeletool a lot more if we had less restrictive laws over here.

this is actually my second skeletool cx. The first I sent back to leatherman after I wore the liner locks little nub that keeps the blade closed off. Its a ball bearing in most knives. I have no idea why leatherman stamps there's instead . The spring inside the lock that holds the bits in was also broken. I replaced it with hard rubber . It worked but it was not the same.

Now you come to mention it, the little nubs on my Wave are looking pretty worn down...  Maybe it just works out cheaper to replace the tools that fail on warranty than it would to make all of them with a ball bearing, but then why wouldn't other manufacturers do the same?   :think:

I say Sidekick as well.  I would like to see how it holds up to some real work since many are under the impression that it can't handle what other more expensive MTs can.

your to late Kyle.

the sidekick I have is modded so it wouldn't be a good tool to review anyway.

I can't fing believe I lost the rebar not even a month into my review.

I haven't gave up looking yet but I am starting to get kinda pissed.

I don't lose tools.

this is a first for me and it really sucks.

not to mention I can't afford to lose smurf. I worked to hard to get such a nice kit together.


SORRY

JA, go for the CRUNCH!  :pok:

Sorry you lost your Rebar...... Maybe the ST300 ate it for breakfast?!   :drool:

And by the way, thanks for the fun thread. It's a nightly ritual for me as was the OHT test.

I dunno, the Crunch is so unique, it might demand its own torture test.  :think:

I also think it deserves a thread of its own.

I'm ok using the skeletool for now.

Sounds good to me; I'll be looking forward to that Crunch test. I have a Skeletool also, but really only dig it for the blade, bottle opener and I really appreciate the eye-appeal in the design. Well geez, sounds like I like it all, since that's about all it has!

The ST300 really is something though. I got a new Surge a couple weeks ago, but have been missing my 300 at work and starting carrying it again. It just feels better in the hand, and the ruler on the side is great for quick references when I forget my tape measure at the desk. Not having to open the tool for the ruler is nice, since I wager the ruler is working on becoming my #1 tool at work.

Anyhow, let the torture continue!

Yeah, you really gave it a going over, but really cool changes :tu:  Sucks you can't find your Rebar man :(  I'd be ticked just like you as I don't lose things like that, and they aren't free either.  Don't give up, and I hope Little Boy shows his face again soon :tu:

and you have the Minnesota ice pick. maybe you could make something to attach that would help with the snow shoveling, like you did with the files and fork for the OHT

Its not as easy with a st300 it does not have a hole for a gum cleaning rod.

I'm really starting to prefer the long serrated blade on fat man almost over the serrated endura I take to work for tough cutting.

I cut a Two inch thick tow rope with one clean cut. Cardboard, rubber house, belts all cut easily with the serrated blade of the st300




work carry



I swap the endura out off and on with a different endura or a cold steel ti lite. It depends on what I think I will be up to.

That's true, I did notice the rachet set right away! 

Didn't some one say "Two is one and one is none"?  I think it was regarding knives but MT's, rachet sets, flashlights all fit with this saying! LOL
