These products have a distinctly military or police feel to them, which is all the rage today.
The first item they sent me was the Multitac multi-tool (tactical multi-tool?) which a large and solidly built knife that features the usual 440 stainless steel locking knife blade, can opener and screwdrivers and pliers.
In addition to these, it has a really useful driver that accepts the standard hex 'bits', of which nine are included.
This is superb because it allows you to pack along all the right ones for your stock and scope mounts, so that you never need worry about anything coming loose again.
The tool and driver bits are supplied in a strong belt pouch that can be worn either vertically or horizontally. The build feels very robust with even the handles being made of metal.
The whole tool is coated with a black, corrosion resistant finish, adding to the military look. I noted that there's a built-in glass breaker, to smash car windows in an emergency.
LEATHERMAN has adapted their stripped back Skeletool design to produce a high viz, emergency tool specifically designed for First Responders and Emergency Rescue personnel.
Designed to be 'worn' rather than 'stowed away', the new Skeletool RX-Rescue features a redesigned 154CM serrated knife blade which is made from a high carbon, high alloy stainless steel that holds its edge three times longer than 420 stainless.
The blade is mounted externally for one handed operation without having to open the tool. A new Carbide Glass Breaker Bit has also been added to Leatherman's trademark pliers, wire cutters, screwdrivers and bits to round out the Skeletool RX-Rescue's capablities.
The stainless steel handle scales are coated in a high viz orange, tough, non-porous and scratch resistant CeraKote finish, making the Skeletool RX-Rescue is easy to quickly locate and also easy to sanitise and maintain.
