Skeletool KB and KBx offer lightweight and compact blades with unique features.
Leatherman, the world’s original and largest manufacturer of high quality multi-tools that prepare people for both expected and unexpected challenges, journeys and adventures, has announced the launch of two new knives in the Skeletool family, coming to consumers in June 2017.
Utilizing new tooling, these two single-blade, lockable knives are utilitarian with unique features, perfect for the Skeletool fan and everyday carry enthusiasts. Both knives feature a support frame that offers increased rigidity and a more robust and confident feel for the user.
“With the popularity of the ‘naked knife’ trend in the market, we wanted to provide our fans with an option featuring Leatherman’s superior quality and design,” said Matt Martin, senior category manager at Leatherman. “It’s the perfect size to slip into your pocket, and I have a feeling it’s going to be the favorite everyday carry here at the Leatherman office.”
The Skeletool KB (MSRP $25) has a 420 HC stainless steel straight blade, which is strong, easy to sharpen and easily opened with one hand. It features a pocket clip with a built-in bottle opener. With a primary blade length of 2.6 inches, the Skeletool KB weighs 1.5 ounces and has a closed length of 3.5 inches. The knife includes a lanyard ring and removable pocket clip. The Skeletool KB is available in black.
The Skeletool KBx (MSRP $25) offers all the features of the KB model, with the addition of a serrated edge to cut through fabric, rope or even a juicy steak. Perfect for hunting, fishing, camping and everyday situations that call for a knife, the Skeletool KBx weighs only 1.5 ounces. The primary blade length is 2.6 inches and the closed length is 3.5 inches. The Skeletool KBx is available in Stainless Steel, Sublime (green) and Denim (blue).
