Personally think the Skeletool is a better daily. I match that with the CS key chain myself and never think I've had an issue in a crunch

In for 1. The Style CS is pretty stellar. I love having a small pair of scissors on the go and at home, they are usually still the most capable pair of scissors available for precision tasks. Great value with the freestyle, which admittedly I have not tried.

Might give the freestyle as a gift as I am quite fond of the skeletool and its screwdriver and bottle opener.

I got the small one 3 years ago. Tweezers felt apart within week even when not used, but the rest of tools are great. I keep it with me all the time as manicure, small knife is really sharp and little screw handy. I am happy with Leatherman products. Got my wave 15 years ago in aafes in Iraq, replaced it year ago when new wave was on sale in Lowe's.

I have and love the skeletool. The carabiner is more useful than you'd think. I use it for opening paint cans it works so well it's crazy. Doesn't damage the lid at all. Its also hefty enough to tap the lid back on. It also makes a awesome large flathead screwdriver. I use it to tighten hose clamps all the time.

The screwdriver is great but when you use it as a hammer the bit flys out of the side Holder. Frown

C33t is one that's caught my eye recently. I think it's discontinued though now. It looks like the perfect combo of size and function for me.
The Phillips bit screwdriver is incredibly good. It seats better than most of good quality professional screwdrivers I use. I would say it's probably technically a posidrive. The flatblade is equally excellent. I won't deny abusing mine a bit. Mine technically probably isn't a C33t - it's too old, but effectively the same. I've got the one with a single torx holding the clip on and the more molded grip that used to have rubber in the recesses. The flat blade is very handy in the kitchen, when I open a can of chili or something that wont slide out of the can I use the flat blade to stab a hole in the back of the can to let air in. Yeah, that's abusing it, but I've been abusing it for over a decade. I'll replace it when it's finally time.

Nice deal. I have two skeletool cx's and would buy this too if the freestyle had a beltclip (although I guess it would pretty much be a skeletool then) because I want a style ps or cs to fly with. I've always wanted to see if I can get a style ps use it's folding scissors to replace one of my skeletools' knives.
It appears to have the same pocket clip as my Skeletool CX. Look at the second image with it closed for the view.

Thanks. Sorry, I meant the carabiner/bottle opener part of the skeletool. I like it so much better than a standard clip or having it in my pocket.

Wish there's a deal for the Skeletool. Absolutely my favorite pocket tool. Lost mine on a snowboarding trip a while back and haven't found another good deal since

Ah, that makes sense. Yeah, that's such a handy function of the skeletool

The last known price (according to CCC; 3rd party seller) for the CS (the smaller of the two) is $29.95. The other Freestyle, though an older model, is probably worth the extra $19. You can get another 5% back if you use one of the shopping portals before going to the Leatherman website.

I would have to agree with you SpaceMikey, if you were in the market for a multitool or to get a jump on your holiday gift list, this is a decent buy. Probably not the slickest of deals but worth a thumbs up.
I bought my Style CS for $13.81 on a lightning deal back in December of 2013 to give you a reference point. Has been hanging off my keychain for 6 years and it is still going strong.

The worst multitool you can buy. Hard Pass. Get Gerber or go home.
What makes it the worst multitool you can buy? I'm not arguing with you. I'm just not familiar with this particular multitool.

Wow, your brand name loyalty is astounding.

I've got no problem with Gerber, but one item being good doesn't mean another one can't be good also.

Gerber makes great multitools. I especially like that all their pliers are spring loaded. I'd get one over a Leatherman in a heartbeat except they have one fatal flaw:

Gerber's Phillips screwdriver bits do not work.

I don't know how you can screw up a #2 Phillips bit, since it's probably the most common bit on Earth. But Gerber manages to do it. My primary use for these tools is to help take apart computer cases, and the Gerber multitools simply cannot do it. I'd struggle with the Phillips bit for about 2-3 minutes, then give up, pop open the flathead bit, and wedge that in diagonally to remove the Phillips screws.

I exchanged the Gerber multitool thinking maybe the first one was defective. Nope, same thing on the second one. Eventually I ground the bit down to try to make it fit better, which helped a little. But it never worked as well as the Leatherman Phillips bit (which is thinner and doesn't look like it'd work, but it does). That bit is the tool I use the most, so its failure to work immediately drops Gerber from consideration. (Their swappable bits work, but the tools with it are too big for my EDC.) Eventually I went back to Leatherman, and their bits Just Work.
