At the end of the day, what matters most about any tool is how it functions. However, most of us also give some consideration to the appearance of our tools. Alternate metal coatings and handle finishes can help your every-day carry items better fit your style, and can also provide a more durable barrier against scratches and corrosion.
Leatherman recently announced the ongoing expansion of its Coyote Tan lineup, which now includes more of the company's most popular multi-tool models. These models feature a black DLC finish on the pliers, blades, tools, and hardware, along with a Coyote Tan Cerakote finish applied to the handles. The two-tone color combo is available on the following models:
OHT – 16 tools – $90 MSRP
Rebar – 17 tools – $60 MSRP
Signal – 19 tools – $110 MSRP
Skeletool – 7 tools – $TBD (tan version not listed online at time of publication)
Skeletool KBX – 2 tools – $25 MSRP
Based on images from the Leatherman press release, it appears that a non-serrated Skeletool KB and non-DLC-coated Skeletool — seen below — will also join the Coyote Tan lineup the future.
