Skeletool SX

Skeletool SX.jpg The Skeletool series has been a very well received set of tools. So Leatherman in 2013 brought about a snowboard tool for this tool type. It has an black diamond like coating (DLC) finish on the frame, a combo knife blade, bit driver on one handle and a diamond file built into the other handle.



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 SX handles are just like the regular Skeletool they are stainless steel but diamond like coating (DLC) have been added to some areas on it and it also has Zytel inserts on parts of it as well. There is no date coding on the Skeletool SX.

History

Introduced in 2013. Made in the USA. Still in production.
The Skeletool SX is very similar to the Skeletool, Skeletool CX, Skeletool RX, 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.
