SOG Vs Leatherman Part 6

Part 6 1We are down to the semi finals here, with SOG leading by one point and two events left!  Who will reign supreme, the Leatherman Skeletool or the SOG Reactor?  Leatherman is down a point already, so let's see if they can pull off a win!

Part 6- Carry Methods

Another big strength of the Skeleool is its versatility in carry- it can be clipped onto a pack or other equipment or clipped to a pocket using the pocket clip.  Conversely the Reactor can really only be carried clipped to a pocket.

SOG Vs Leatherman Part 5

Part 5 1As we get closer to the finale of this shootout the big question is- will Leatherman gain some ground or will SOG reign supreme?  It's getting pretty heated here as both the Skeletool and the Reactor both try to be the top light duty EDC Tool in this shootout!

Part 5- Bottle Opener

I don’t even know if there is a comparison needed here- this one is as open and shut as it can possibly get, and the Skeletool absolutely kills the Reactor on this one.  But, since I am dragging this out into a serial, let’s get into why.

SOG Vs Leatherman Part 4

If you haven't read the earlier parts of this shootout I suggest you check them out to see how we have been scoring everything so far- here are some quick links to help get caught up!

Part 1- The Tale Of The Tape      Part 2- Blades           Part 3- Pliers     

As it sits now, the SOG reactor is currently in the lead with three points to the Skeletool's one, but there's a lot more yet to come- read on and see if Leatherman is going to make a comeback!

Part 4- Screwdrivers

Part 3 3To me the screwdrivers are probably the most used part of a multitool, or at least are tied with the blade for most used, and therefore they deserve special attention.  Of course, as screwdrivers are part of the scope of this comparison, I imagine we were going to take a close look anyway….

Leatherman Vs SOG Part 3

Part 3- Pliers

Part 3 1After the blade the most prominent function is the pliers, and let’s face it, this one seems like an open and shut case (pun sadly intended) given SOG’s compound leverage.  Just for the fun of it though, let’s break it down and see what we really have.

Leatherman Vs SOG Part 2

Part 2In case you missed Part 1 yesterday, we are doing a direct comparison of Leatherman's Skeletool and SOG's Reactor.  These two multitools are remarkably similar in function, but let's see how they fare in the real world when stacked up head to head!  In today's installment we are going to look closely at each of the blades on these tools and see which one comes out on top!

Leatherman Vs SOG Shootout!

Part 1 9It’s not often you get the opportunity to pit a multitool directly against a competitor as the variety of functions makes almost every model different from every other one.  Occasionally though, we manage to find a couple that are close enough that we can match them against eachother in a very fair fight- last year it was the Leatherman OHT vs the Gerber Center-Drive and it resulted in a draw.  You can see last year’s match up here:

This year we are going compact as the SOG Reactor takes on the Leatherman Skeletool.

What Were They Thinking?

It seems to be generally agreed that Leatherman's offerings from SHOT this year are somewhat lacking given the recent excitement of Gerber's Center-Drive and SOG's entire new multitool lineup.  Their response is basically simplified versions of what they have been producing for years.

LM 07 19 2016 FinalLeatherman USA has launched the New Skeletool RX First Responder Multi-Tool. In a release last week the company explained that the new tool will help first responders “be ready to respond quickly and safely in emergency situations.”

It looks like the tool has many of the same features of the regular Skeletool with a few minor changes. This model contains a carabiner/bottle opener, hybrid needle nose pliers/wire cutters, 154CM serrated knife and a replaceable carbide bit- strong enough to break windows.

As always, we’ll post a review as soon as we’ve had a chance to really use the New Skeletool RX First Responder Multitool.

Leatherman Skeletool CX Review

Similar to it's more affordable cousins, the standard Skeletool and the yet to be released Freestyle, the Skeletool CX is the premium model in this particular line. It boasts the same features as the standard model, but with a few extra bonuses.
