Leatherman Skeletool Multi-Tool
I liked the product, but after 8 months of use one handle snapped off while using the pliers.

Best everyday carry knife.
This knife has turned into a daily carry item for me. I have had this knife for a year and swear by it. I carry it with me at all times and use all the accessories weekly. I would not count on the tools to be used to rebuild an engine, but for light task it fits the need. My family and I are active in hiking and primitive camping and this knife is the first thing I make sure I have before leaving for a weekend/week if camping.
I am writting this review because I bought each of my sons (3) one if these and hope they will be able to use it as I have.

I've always heard how good leatherman tools were...well, I am not impressed. I paid $89.99 for my Skeletool from BPS back in the summer. It only took about three weeks before I noticed the screws were coming loose and the blade would "wiggle" and be hard to close. I finally purchased the right size star-bit to keep it tight. That worked for a little while but I was having to tighten everyday. Now the screw is gone and it's on its way for replacement. I also had a regular leatherman knife that the tip broke off cutting rubber tubing. I just hope their customer service is better then their product quality.

Excellent overall, but
As with most leatherman tools, this quality is outstanding. The only tiny feature wish is for the wire cutter to work well with fiber wires. I tried to cut the key chain that comes in one of those enterprise rent a cars, but it couldn't hack it. Other wise the blade and the pliers are excellent. the screw bits work great (although the spare bit holder does have a tendency to drop the bits if you drop the multi-tool). Overall, excellent tool and light and strong as heck.
