    I remember the post last year that showed some potential Leatherman designs for 2010. The one that intregued me the most was the Leatherman Style seen here - http://toolguyd.com/2010/02/leatherman-style-a-minimalist-keychain-multi-tool/
    I am really glad they decided to make it and for $20 retail, I do not think it is a bad price. Looking at it though, it seems that Leatherman may have been paying attention to all of the micra mods that have been going around and decided to get in on the action. Whatever the reason, I am going to get one and I hope that they make an all stainless version sometime soon as well.

    I think that looks pretty nice, I didn't care much for the tweezers on the micra though, so hopefully they'll improve upon that a bit.

    I'll be getting one... I have had my micra for almost 8 years and its time for a new key ring tool.

    looks like a very nice keychain tool for those that dont like dedicated keychain knives and mini multi tools. would definitely pick one up if the blade locks.

    How about the style CS? i like that one better, i have a Skeletool, and it kinda matches better, then they show the next size up will be the MUT, if you have a freestyle then the style i think goes better,,, JR

    Style CS Details via ToolGuyd

    LM is saying that the Style CS should be out in May.

    Personally, I will likely buy both a Style and Style CS. While they both appear to be highly functional, the full-leverage scissors of the CS interest me more. I've been meaning to pick up a Squirt S4 for the past 3 years, but $25-30 for such a small tool seemed a bit excessive to me, especially considering that my Gerber Shortcut is still serving me well.

    An MSRP of $27 for the Style CS suggests that it will probably be $25 or less at retail, which sounds great to me!

    I looks very cool and for the price its a good alternative to Victorinox SAK. Hope they changed tweezers style, the micra ones were prety useless

    The Link that Stuey posted shows it with removable tweezers, so I think thats a pretty good improvement over the micra's

    I like this design overall... very minimalist and key chain friendly.

    Actually, both the Style and Style CS both feature removable tweezers. I have added an additional image to the ToolGuyd post that adimag linked to in the first post of this thread to show this.

    Judging by the pics, it looks like they have adopted the chisel ground blades off the Squirt range.
    That might disappoint/dissuade a lot of potential users
