What is the one tool that is missing in the Leatherman Skeletool? I wish it had the little scissor instead of the bottle cap opener.
Exactly. I can't fathom why people need a tiny little pair of scissors on a tool that already has a knife. I've owned multi-tools with scissors for more than ten years. I've actually used those scissors maybe a dozen times or so. A sharp knife blade always works better for me than a tiny little pair of 1" scissors.Why do you need scissors on a KNIFE? Don't knives cut?
......The one thing I could do without is the large clip/bottle opener on my Skeletool. I've never used it, and it unnecessarily adds 20% more length to the tool, as well as extra weight.
I've thought of that, one solution would be to use a combo bit with a phillips on one end and a standard flat on the other. Leatherman makes a lot of different bits, but I'm not sure they make one like that, should be easy enough to grind one end of a double phillips bit down into a flat tip though. If the prices on the Skeletools ever drops or I can find one used, I may give that a shot. If you would grind/mill off the bottle opener/clip, you could use the screwdriver without opening the tool up.you mill off the bottle opener and you loose the clip, if you take the length back the screwdriver would stick out and no more lanyard hole, not the big round one any way. If there was a place to store the second bit...:thinking: The thing that bugs me you have to open it to use the screwdriver.
