    I stumbled up one of these yesterday online, didn't know they made them. I like Leatherman (well, my dad likes them, I've bought a few for him over the years), but I don't need THAT many tools. Blade/pliers/bit driver/bottle opener sounds great, in a relatively slim package.

    Is there something else similar in usefulness/simplicity as the skeletool that I should be looking at?

    I have one and carry it every day. works out pretty good cant apply that much torque due to frame flex. I keep the other set of bits in my bag it works out really well
