Skeletool RX

Skeletool RX.jpg The Skeletool series has been a very well received set of tools. So Leatherman has in 2016 brought about a rescue version (for emergency workers) of this tool type. It has an orange Ceracote finish on the frame, a fully serrated knife blade for seat belt cutting and comes with a carbide glass breaker bit in the bit holder.



Jaws

Plier jaws are larger than the Squirt P4 jaws, but considerably smaller than full size jaws found on the Kick or Charge. Best comparison would be with the Juice series of tools. It has a needlenose/regular set of stainless steel pliers plus a set of wire cutters with a hard wire notch.

Handles/Frame

Skeletool RX handles are just like the regular Skeletool they are stainless steel but have an orange corrosion-proof protective finish called Cerakote. There is no date coding on the Skeletool RX.

History

Introduced in 2016. Made in the USA. Still in production.
The Skeletool RX is very similar to the Skeletool, Skeletool CX, Skeletool SX, Freestyle and Freestyle CX. There are also two keychain Leatherman tools that are based on the Skeletool chasis the Style PS and the Style CS. The MUT albeit bigger has very many similarities to the Skeletool series in that the frame is very similar it uses same type of fasteners and has a carabiner clip much like the Skeletool as well. The Signal also has many of the same similarities to the Skeletool as the MUT does.
