SX

Juice SX.jpg The Juice SX was a tool in the Juice series that was created for use as a surf board tool. It has a 3/32 inch fin key to adjust the surf board fin. The original version was released in 2013 and only produced for a few months. In 2014 Leatherman redesigned the entire Juice series by shortening the knife blade and changing the scales to a colored handle and a stainless steel wavy textured handle. Thus reintroducing the Juice SX in this new format. It is still in production at this time.
