Leatherman Skeletool Fail – Update

Thursday, November 21st, 2013

I mentioned it broke before. I went to their website, printed off a form, and they sent me an email saying a replacement was on it’s way. Well, the replacement arrived a couple of weeks ago. And, while I cannot tell without breaking it, the may have started forging the newer models instead of casting […]

Leatherman Skeletool Fails

Monday, October 7th, 2013

Sometimes, when you need it, your equipment will fail. I have long gone on about how much I like my Leatherman Skeletool. Well, after years of fairly hard use, mine finally failed: It was no match for a stubborn whirlpool tub drain. A pretty clean break: It says it has a stainless steel body but […]

NJT is digging his. I like mine too.

Knife Stuff

Ok, if you read two things today, make sure the second one is this. A good discussion on how to fight with a knife, in case it comes up. An insightful and, frankly, thought-provoking piece on something I’ve never really thought about. Speaking of knives, I decided I need a new every day carry knife. […]

Knife Meme

Take knife from pocket, post pic on the internet: It’s a Leatherman Skeletool, which I recommend. It’s my nature to be practical and this fits the bill for many things. Not the most tactical or best for a back up. But it’s pointy and does other stuff. All the cool kids are playing. I used […]

Knife Blogging

All the cool kids are doing it. Frankly, I’ve never been into knives that much. I have an Old Timer given to me by my dad that I keep in the nightstand. And all I carry in terms of a knife is a Leatherman Skeletool (my brief review is here). Handy tools to have.

Couple of bleg updates

Friday, July 23rd, 2010

Thanks all for the various responses and emails to my camera bleg. We decided on the Nikon D5000 and we snagged a zoom lense to go with it. I’m not much of a photographer but it works quite well for the 15 minutes I managed to play with it. It snaps pictures really quick, which […]

Being tactical requires organizational skills

Wednesday, July 14th, 2010

In the last few weeks, I’ve lost my tactical pen and my multi-tool. I need a tactical purse. I’m sold on the TacPen. Anyhoo, any recommendations on a new multi-tool? Anything wizbang tactical come out since the skeletool?

What you wear

A meme started by Marko and picked up on by Jay is what’s in your pockets. Well, here’s what’s in mine: Clockwise from top left: DOPP Regatta Magnetic Money Clip and Card Holder. I used to carry a decent wallet but it became uncomfortable. So, I went thin. A Leatherman Skeletool, which I highly recommend. […]

A multi-tool for guns

The Gun Tool looks pretty neat. Related: Glenn loves his skeletool. I agree.

Combination Flintlock Knife-Pistol

A look at an old multi-tool. Pretty cool. I’ll stick with my Skeletool. It’s a multi-tool I actually carry instead of leaving in the truck.

Birthday Loot

Thursday, October 30th, 2008

Quiet night at home with the family, with a few of my favorite things: sushi, bourbon, apple pie. I got some coffee mugs with the kids’ pics on them. Also, I got a Leatherman Skeletool. I had an old Gerber Multi-Tool that a friend got me. I’ve had that thing for 18 years as of […]
