    I've owned a Skeletool CX for about 4 years and I have never had any issues with rust. I live only a few miles from the Pacific ocean.

    I sweat like a priest in a brothel and mine hasn’t got any. It’s not a true daily driver but at times it’s in my pocket weeks at time on some long shifts.

    I’d contact leatherman, the UK customer service arm have been excellent when I’ve contacted them in the past.

    I’ve only used the CX, so I can’t speak for the base model, but rust has not been a problem at all. I guess I got mine around 2008 and it’s followed me through all kinds of wet and humid conditions; tenting in Norwegian mountains, traveling to west Africa, South America, sout east Asia, offshore work in the North Sea and a million other things. I haven’t really showed it the love and care it deserves either, keeping maintenance to a bare minimum with an occasional sharpening now and then. I would not hesitate to get another one.

    Thanks guys for your answers. Idk what happened to mine then. I am considering getting the Wave Plus in black instead but I'm not sure yet what I want to do.

    The pocket clip is the best.

    ""I sweat like a priest in a brothel..."

    Needed that laugh! Been just a tub of stress these past few weeks!
