Answer: 
Overall no.
I have one small blot of rust (pictured) on the blade and some on the inside rim of the "skeletonized" part of the blade (not visible in the photo).
They have to use a carbon blade for edge retention, so some rust is possible; however minor with this grade of steel. I carry mine daily in a sweaty back pocket, and it's been tasked for wet jobs and gone right back in the pocket; only Read More

I carry mine daily in a sweaty back pocket, and it's been tasked for wet jobs and gone right back in the pocket; only receiving a quick blow-off for excess water (mainly as a courtesy to my pocket and not the tool). Besides what's pictured, the tool is pristine. Including the bits and socket interior. Read Less

Answer: 
Steel is made from iron. Iron in it's natural state is rust. Therefore, all steel, regardless stainless or not, will rust overtime. If you treat it right, this tool will last a long time, perhaps outlive you. If you leave it in water or high moisture environment, it will rust.

Answer: 
It's stainless steel - so it normally won't but stainless steel isn't rust proof. Leatherman has a good web page about rust and maintenance tips.

Rated 5.0 out of 5 by 9 reviewers.
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great Value, Good (almost great) Function I gave 5 stars overall for the weight and convenience; no multi-tool will ever be perfect; it's in my pocket everyday, so the pros outweigh the cons. My only complaints: no file, no measure hashes, typical Leatherman sticking pliers. My favorites: LIGHTWEIGHT!!!, pocket clip, exchangeable driver bits, easy access to driver + cap-lifter, outside access to the very sharp blade. I own and have carried a few Leatherman tools. (Wave, Sidekick, and Skeletool) The one that deserves EDC status is the Skeletool. I found it at HD for an insane deal and am happy I didn't pass it up. Biggest reason my others do not follow me everyday is their heavy weight. The Sidekick attracted me with its pocket-clip, but it's a lot of weight that sags your back pocket; plus the cap-lifter and driver are not readily accessible; your buddy will have the top off his beer with a lighter before you have out your handy-dandy opener. ★(more on the Sidekick below). I find my most used tools are the driver & cap-lifter, and they are both quickly accessible; as opposed to other models with those same items in fold-out form. The blade, also easy to get to, is incredibly sharp; after plenty of pocket time it has a small blot of rust likely from a contact point when closed, but is overall immaculate and has maintained its edge. ("Maintained" compared to other blades that dull simply from corrosion even without use.) I carry a dedicated blade, and this one's razor sharpness is reserved for threads, self-manicure duties, and food (minus a cutting board). I'm a tradesmen. The pliers... the pliers are what they are; never a replacement for a dedicated tool. I don't expect any function of any multi-tool to be without fault. However some improvement could be made: The jaws are a bit dainty, but proportionately sized to the handle; so that's ok, and I will say that the tips are precise in their contact (they can pluck a hair), and the flats have an offset pivot point which gives a better grasp of wire and such (same as a linesman plier has a gap when fully closed, because you're not picking up paper with this). I will add that the pivot lock-up is tight, and zero wiggle is detected. MY ONE MAIN GRIPE with this plier is the wire-cutter. As with most Leathermans the wire-cutter is a "scissor" type, so some attempts at wire cuts end with no cut at all; instead the jaws close with the wire sandwiched between, and the hinge binds. Not a big deal, but clearing the bind can tear up your hands and is, most of all, a frustration; most times you get lucky by closing and opening the tool. I just remain choosy about what types of wire I will cut with it. The apex of the jaw has a point for cutting "heavy-guage" wire, and I find this useful for stripping wire. I wish it could have the cutting jaws of the Sidekick; an "anvil" type cutter with metal-on-metal where there is no chance of a bind. Since the plier jaws are a bit undersized for some tasks, I wouldn't mind nixing them altogether for a diagonal wire cutter. In my daily use, this has what I need the most. In fact I sometimes realize after making a trip to my truck "dang, I could've used my Leatherman." For my trade, I wish this had a file for smoothing & reaming, and measurement increments etched somewhere. However it still goes with me everday for its light weight design. ★- Poor cap-lifter access on the Sidekick, but it's also a can-opener (Skeletool is strictly a cap-lifter), and the driver is a "last resort" fold-out type; no match for the changeable bit type. The pliers are nice for wire cutting, but evermoreso disproportionately dainty compared to the handle. They are sprung, which is also nice. July 5, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Unbelievable value The Leatherman Skeletool is elegantly simple by design, and worth the full retail price of almost $70. So to find the tool on the shelves at Home Depot for half price was amazing. I'm considering going back to pick up a few more to keep in the car glovebox and pass out as gifts for the holidays.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Leatherman Skeletool Great for EDC. Have had it in my pocket everyday for about a month now and has been a lifesaver on many occasions. April 14, 2015
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by GOOD PRODUCT Let's face it, is a Leatherman so it is good quality. PROS: Good quality, the blade is super sharpe, and it looks pretty cool, plus it has a clip so I always have it on that little pocket in your right side of your jeans. Cons: It does not has as many tools as the other ones. In all, you can use this to do many things. I love this tool and never leave anywhere without it. February 29, 2012
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Solid, Useful Product The Skeletool is not as versatile as other tools, but it is excellent at what it needs to do. The tool is a good weight and gives you a confident feel of quality craftmanship. I have no problem pulling the knife and pliers out the many times I had to use them. One great feature is the removable clip. I can clip my Skeletool to my belt and not have to worry about wearing and losing a sheath. January 24, 2011
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Leatherman Skeletool. The Skeletool is exactly what my son wanted. Thank you for the speedy delivery. January 16, 2014
