Best Product – Hot Deal: Leatherman Skeletool Multi-Tool for $30!

Leatherman Skeletool Pliers Open

The Leatherman Skeletool is one of my favorite multi-tools of all time, and it’s on sale now for $30 at Home Depot and Amazon.

The Skeletool is a minimalist tool, with pliers, a knife, a special slim bit screwdriver, and a carabiner hook that doubles as a bottle opener.

Its screwdriver comes in handy. It includes 2 double-ended bits, and you can buy more. There’s also a special 1/4″ hex bit adapter that allows you to use regular insert bits, but its price has shot up in recent years.

I mainly carry and use the Skeletool for its combo pliers and the knife blade. These are the 2 tools I use most out of any multi-tool, and I find myself using a Skeletool or Skeletool CX at home even with full sized tools nearby.

This is the lowest I’ve ever seen the Skeletool sell for, matching last year’s holiday price.

Here’s last year’s Amazon deal post, and here’s the Home Depot deal post, for the comment discussions.

This is a great gift item, and a lot better than the $10 no-name garbage that a lot of stores have out on display this time of year. But it’s also a great self-gift idea.

I don’t need any more multi-tools, but am seriously considering getting one for the garage, to take the place of a Wingman that will soon be assigned to basement duty.

Leatherman SideKick Multi-Tool Fanned Open
Sidekick – also on sale for $30

If you want a tool with more features, the Leatherman Sidekick is also on sale for $30 at Amazon. The Sidekick has been lower priced in past years, but costs rose and $30 is $10 off its now-regular price of $40. It’s not as polished as the Skeletool, but you get more functionality.
