420HC COMBO KNIFE WITH LOCKING BLADE: The Freestyle is equipped with a combination straight/serrated blade crafted from 420HC, a high-carbon stainless steel that is corrosion resistant and can be easily maintained. The blade locks into place when fully deployed and must be manually unlocked to fold it away, which allows for a much safer user experience.
OUTSIDE-ACCESSIBLE TOOLS: The Freestyle features tools that are accessible while the tool is in its folded or closed position, mimicking the functionality of a pocket knife. In addition, the Freestyle includes a replaceable pocket clip, which allows the user to wear their multi-tool attached to a pocket or belt loop.
ONE-HANDED OPERABLE: Every feature on the Freestyle can be opened and operated with one hand. This enables you to keep the other hand free for situations that require multi-tasking or a free hand.
LEATHERMAN 25 YEAR GUARANTEE: We take extraordinary measures so your Leatherman product is free from manufacturer's defects and will give you many years of dependable service. If the tool does have a defect, we will gladly repair or replace it, at our discretion. This warranty does not cover sheaths, accessories, imprinting, color finishes, cleaning or sharpening. This warranty covers products purchased through an authorized dealer and proof of purchase from an authorized dealer may be required.

I've been carrying a Leatherman Tool for well over two decades, and have used it at least once every day I've carried it. I've carried a Leatherman Wave for the last ten years, and it's served me rather well that entire time. When they came out with the Skeletool, it looked too awkward for me with the large carabiner clip, so I decided against trying to upgrade to it. This appeared to be approximately the same tool minus the clip, so I pulled the trigger on buying it. The knife blade is well placed and easy to open, which has always been a major failing of the Wave series and I'm rather happy with it. The pliers on the other hand are kind of awkward and thin looking. Unlike the previous Leatherman tools, I don't feel as comfortable using them as casually on tough jobs. While their design does lend more toward a more comfortable carry the handles are too short and the curve makes for a clumsy handhold on them. I would have preferred that they retained the bit driver...
I was looking for a lightweight multi tool to take on long hikes. On the whole, I'm satisfied. The tool is smaller than I expected, but is is very well built and the blade is excellent. Although Leatherman claims that the Freestyle is a combination of 5 tools, any reasonable person will find 2: A knife and pliers.
The Freestyle is a stripped down, high style pocket sized multitool from Leatherman.
I have a dozen or more multitools from Leatherman, Gerber, Swisstool and chinese knock-offs. My all-time favorite has been the Juice S2. I've carried one in my pocket for more than a dozen years. I bought the Freestyle just to try out a minimal tool for awhile.
The Freestyle is a modern looking tool with a nice pair of pliers and a nice locking blade on the exterior. The problem with the freestyle is that it has limited functionality, but isn't as compact and lightweight as Leatherman's previous offerings.
What I like about the Freestyle:
- The looks - it looks cool just sitting on my desk.
- The exterior, one hand opening, locking knife blade - hard blade holds a good edge (see cons below)
- The pliers - have great ergonomics and a tight joint. They grip well and I can bear down on them hard - a clear step up from my juice...
