Leatherman originally scheduled the Skeletool’s release for Nov. 2007 — finally, after a number of delays, they released it two weeks ago. The Skeletool CX is still on hold until possibly later this week, and its list price on Amazon has almost doubled in the last week. Presales of the Skeletool and Skeletool CX have supposedly outstripped the initial production run according to comments on Amazon’s customer forum [What’s This?].
Toolmongers had a lot to say about this new multi-tool when we featured it back in Sept. Did Leatherman create an over-hyped frenzy, or have they hit on something? Have any of you got your hands on one, or are you still waiting? Let us know in comments.
