Bigger isn't always better.
In fact, sometimes it's nice to have a knife or multi-tool that you can just stick in your pocket.
Yes, it's true that most dads like big, manly tools and cars and such. But they're also equally impressed by tiny tools that are functional rather than decorative.
The Freestyle CX by Leatherman fits that category. It's the perfect "stow away" knife for every-day use. Any dad will be glad to have this handy multi-tool in hand when the need for a knife or a pair of pliers arises. He'll likely take the CX around with him everywhere - biking, hiking, 4-wheeling, or just around town.
My husband says he likes the Freestyle because it's strong enough to cut through a barbed wire fence, yet its compact and light enough to carry when he's out in the "field."
Retailing for approximately $50-$60, the Freestyle CX is ideal for the modern MacGyver.
