Holiday Gift Ideas: Leatherman Juice CS4
There's something inherently cool about multitools, something that appeals to our primal nature. Any time we need to reaffirm our manliness, all we have to do is strip some wire, pry something open with pliers, or unscrew something and screw it back together. And if it all can be done with a single tool that hangs from our belt, all the better. Enter the Leatherman Juiceline of multitools, which has all the cool, manly tools you expect, plus offers some assistance for your mobile bar.
We love Leathermans (Leathermen?) in general, but we want more than just an opportunity to carry 14 knives, pliers and a saw on our belt at all times. We want to be able to open beers and uncork wine, as well as be able to make repairs and adjustments on our beer pong table. With our favorite model, the Leatherman Juice CS4, we can do all that and more. Here's the product description we found at Amazon:
Packing 14 individual tools into a remarkably compact, metallic blue, anodized-aluminum body, Leatherman's cool new CS4--a.k.a. the Glacier--is a midsize member of the company's exciting, new Juice line of multitools. Only 3-1/4 inches long, and weighing a mere 5-1/2 ounces, the Glacier really is small enough to carry comfortably in your pocket.
Like other Leatherman tools, the Glacier butterflies open, exposing the needle-nose pliers/wire cutters/wire stripper, with access to three flat-head screwdrivers, a Philips driver, and a lanyard attachment--the same tools you'll find inside Leatherman's KF4 Solar. The Glacier's handles, however, harbor a different combination of tools that are perfect for picnickers: scissors, a can/bottle opener, corkscrew, a saw, an awl, and a straight knife.
Like the entire Leatherman's Juice line, the Glacier positively snaps into the open position, and the individual tools are all made of high-grade stainless steel. The Juice multitools do lack the blade-locking mechanism found on Leatherman's Wave, but the blades click crisply into place and hold securely. Looking for a gift for your favorite technophile or gadget lover? You can't go wrong with the Glacier.
We're sold! You can pick up the Leatherman Juice CS4
at Amazon, and it's currently marked down from $69.99 to $49.99. Or browse the full Leatherman Juice
line to find one that meets your needs. And remember, it makes a great gift for the man (or gadget-oriented lady) in your life, as well as for your friendly neighborhood Liquor Snobs.
