Fair enough Capt  :tu:.


I just figured I would mention it.

I wish I could fit the Juice in my fifth pocket. It would make for a amazing pocket to carry it in. I always wish I had a 4"-5" slim pocket in between my front right and back right pocket. It would be perfect for multitools and/or folders.

and an inside pocket for my Surge just to one side of the inseam,   you know,   :pok:   >:D
If I can help, let me know

Are you referring to the pocket mod I did to my pants a long time ago or are you just being dirty?  :think:  :D

I haven't tried the Skeletool CX but do think I would like it.
Wanna borrow one?

Which small leatherman do you all recommend?

I have a Wave and want a nice small pocket model. I prefer a clip but not required.

I also want a blade that is on the outside, if there is a model.

What is the best model?

If you are looking for a small tool to accompany Skeletool, a Micra would fit the bill.
Skeletool has outside blade and most large drivers, while Micra would offer you scissors, tweezers and small drivers for those precise tasks.
Together, they make a good Urban light duty combo

   The Micra gets my vote..
I knew my wife was a keeper when she transitioned from calling it a knife thingy to a multi-tool.

Love my Style CS :D  I find it to be one of the most useful, versatile and best quality tool I use on a frequent basis. I understand that the Micra has more tools, but to me, those tools aren't very useful. The outside opening of the implements on the CS trumps the Micra all to hell IMO.

That said, I do own several Micras and like them very much. I just happen to prefer the CS.

That might be a good thing.  ;)

Firstly, I don't need to EDC a multitool. I got it when I worked at the zoo and it was handy then.
Pliers/wire cutters: As everyone says, for light duty. I would rather have something beefier for fencing wire. I would like the pliers to be spring-loaded.
Knife: I really dig the blade and how easy it is to deploy.
Bit driver: I have probably used this the most, especially one day dismantling and reassembling a whole lot of office furniture with allen and robinson fastenings with the help of the bit kit.
Pocket clip: enables the tool to slip nicely into your pocket, hardly notice it's there.

I got the CX more for the better quality steel/PE blade; I don't really care about the carbon fibre and I think the plain Skele actually looks better - more terminator-ish. I'm thinking about making a new part to store both bits out of aluminium which I think would look better.

I really like the design and feel of the Skeletool.

You're not at the park anymore?

So get the plain skele and swap in the cx blade. Got it.

√ćnstead of that, I believe you can get a Skeletool CX blade from Texas ToolCrafters on Ebay, they fit right into a standard Skele ;)

Nah, moved nearly a year ago. I miss it out there (except the rats).

Depends what you like the look of - I think the carbon fibre is more about looks than anything, although I jprefer the all steel look. TTC do gold ones... they look nice...

I like function over looks.

Made some nice stuff that evil did.  :tu:
