The Leatherman Skeletool is one of my favorite multi-tools of all time, and it’s on sale now for $30 at Home Depot and Amazon.
The Skeletool is a minimalist tool, with pliers, a knife, a special slim bit screwdriver, and a carabiner hook that doubles as a bottle opener.
Its screwdriver comes in handy. It includes 2 double-ended bits, and you can buy more. There’s also a special 1/4″ hex bit adapter that allows you to use regular insert bits, but its price has shot up in recent years.
I mainly carry and use the Skeletool for its combo pliers and the knife blade. These are the 2 tools I use most out of any multi-tool, and I find myself using a Skeletool or Skeletool CX at home even with full sized tools nearby.
This is the lowest I’ve ever seen the Skeletool sell for, matching last year’s holiday price.
This is a great gift item, and a lot better than the $10 no-name garbage that a lot of stores have out on display this time of year. But it’s also a great self-gift idea.
I don’t need any more multi-tools, but am seriously considering getting one for the garage, to take the place of a Wingman that will soon be assigned to basement duty.
If you want a tool with more features, the Leatherman Sidekick is also on sale for $30 at Amazon. The Sidekick has been lower priced in past years, but costs rose and $30 is $10 off its now-regular price of $40. It’s not as polished as the Skeletool, but you get more functionality.
