Skeletool CX is my preference too. it's thin enough to carry in waistband. The blade stock isa higher quality blade steel, and is wicked sharp, and holds it's edge well. I have others, but unlessi actually carry them, they don't get much use. Oh yes... If you've got the tool orienteda certain way it can totally squeeze a chunk of your hand while using the pliers. I have to be careful that the heel of the blade isn't next to my palm. But even with that minor annoyance, it's still my preferred tool for everyday carry. For perspective, I also have the wave. I have the Gerber speed pliers (in no way inferior to Leatherman) . I have several Swiss army knives. I keep them so i can have back up in the truck, or car. And because they look cool and have sentimental value. But they are all bulkier to carry. it's the skeletool or one of my knife-biased tools that gets daily use. The crunch is an awesome concept, and if I were to get another, for the toolbox, it'd be that.
