Leatherman Skeletool CX

Thanks to Amazon Prime, I recently picked up this multi-tool to carry in my safety vest while at work. I used to EDC my Victorinox Swisstool back in the day, but the weight and size of it got old quick. To avoid dealing with another item to EDC, my multi-tools found new homes in my cars and in various kits. This way I can easily get to one if need be, but not have to worry about lugging it around. When I climbed the tower crane at work last week, I realized that I made a mistake by not bringing any tools with me as I needed to work on our webcam, but had nothing practical to work with. Now, this Leatherman is clipped to my vest pocket, right along with my Nitecore MT06, a green laser pointer, and various pens & pencils.

While I can't say I'm entirely impressed with this, the number of tools on this was a little underwhelming, I think it will do it's job just fine. The pocket clip, one hand opening knife, and relatively light weight makes it a better candidate than my Swisstool despite having less tools fold out of it.
