    I was cleaning the crud off my LM Skeletool and looking at the way it is constructed and realised that the knife section is made almost as a pocket knife in it's own right. With a super slim clip similar to the one that is already used on the Skeletool it would make a great little user pocket knife, though perhaps with a slightly better blade steel.

    No, just the knife bit. If you look at a Skeletool the knife part is only held on by 2 rivets and the pivot pin.

    :) Here I was patiently waiting (for a while now) to have a worthy post to start off with here then I read this! I just couldn't resist voicing my agreement on this idea! :iagree: I was thinking this same thing when my freestyle cx arrived last week. I'd certainly be in for one if LM made them, they'd be so pocketable! Now to work that carbon fiber into it (maybe a thin slab under the liner lock instead of steel) and shrink that washer down a little.
