Leatherman Freestyle™…Just don't call it "cute"



 

Portland, OR, March 2009 --This spring, Leatherman Tool Group will release Freestyle, the new multi-tool/knife hybrid that folds up to be just larger than a pack of gum. Based on the wildly popular Skeletool platform, Freestyle will be lighter and smaller making it the perfect "companion" or stand-alone tool.

Small but Powerful
Freestyle will feature an outside-accessible blade and the legendary Leatherman pliers with wire cutters. It will have the same popular look of the Skeletool, and weigh only 4.5 ounces.

Two Models
Both models will begin shipping in late May; the Freestyle with 420HC straight/serrated combo blade and the Freestyle CX with 154CM straight blade. The bodies of both models will be 100% stainless steel for durability with Zytel or carbon-fiber (CX) handle inserts for weight reduction. The Freestyle CX will feature DLC coating for scratch and corrosion resistance. Both models are small enough to slip into a front pocket with some change, but will feature a pocket clip for portability on a belt.

Great Value
Price-point friendly (MSRP: $48 and $72) and minimal size means Freestyle models will make great "companion" tools. Many job-specific tools don't feature pliers or a knife. Freestyle will make the perfect addition for these vital functions in a pocket-knife-size tool. As a stand-alone tool, the Freestyle can take the place of an everyday carry knife that includes pliers without adding any bulk to the belt.

Both the Freestyle and the Freestyle CX will be covered under Leatherman's industry-leading, 25-year warranty.
