The new Leatherman Freestyle CX is great as a stand-alone tool because it takes up so little space. It's also an ideal companion for those activity-specific tools that don't feature pliers or a knife. The Leatherman CX features DLC coating for scratch-resistance and corrosion-resistance, making it useful for all kinds of tasks where it may need to get down and dirty. The Leatherman Freestyle CX features needlenose pliers, regular pliers, wire cutters, hard-wire cutters and an outside-accessible locking blade. It can clip onto your pocket for ease of access as well.
