Get 'charged up' with the Kilowatt, the first working theme knife designed for the electrician, homeowner, contractor, or anyone who might need to strip wire in a pinch. Three separate systems address wire from fine multi strand all the way up to cable. There is a stripper bar for wire sizes of 10-22, an adjustable spring-loaded UTP/wire stripper in the back, and just in case, our patent pending hole stripper that uses the main blade. Schematic grips, hi voltage tower clip, insulator thumb stud, and a blade with receptacle engraving are signatures that make this a very unique liner lock knife.

Without the Kilowatt... you just might end up in the dark!

Customer Ratings & Reviews

Kilowatt is rated 4.3636 out of 5 by 11.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Electrician's Knife I'm an electrician and use this knife daily. It holds an edge very well and takes a razor sharp one. I'll use it for stripping large wire every day, an anyone who works with this kind of wire knows hows hard that is on an edge. At the end of the day the knife is still sharp. I'd say good Knife for a good price, Two thumbs up

Rated 4 out of 5 by from looks good works better Use it everyday great knife. Strippers work good. A little bulky but if you don't have a pair of strippers on you they are great.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Gift for a friend I bought this knife for a friend and they lo e the features. They're an electrcian so the knife is ideal for the work they do and minimizes the amount of Times they reach in their tool bag for different wire strippers or cable cutters, etc. It's a great product with a great design.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from So nice, I bought it twice. (And a nod to a hero.) I bought my first Kilowatt in 2003 If I remember right, at 25 Years old. Carried it everywhere and used it relentlessly. For cutting everything from ropes to sandwiches. The main blade keeps its edge still, I suppose due to the cryo treatment they gave it at the factory. The wire strippers (all three) still work perfectly to this day (11/12/2014) In early 2009, I lost my Kilowatt due to my own clumsiness and thought it lost forever so of course I bought another. Months later, I was working and a guy, who I had come to know on a friendly basis saw me using it and said "Hey! I've only seen a knife like that once in my life. Did you lose one a while back?" I told him yes, I had, and after a short chat he brought me to his nearby home and presented it to me. He explained that he had picked it up feeling somehow that it would make its way back to its original owner and so it did. I offered to let him have either it or the new one and he insisted I take it back. Drew Keriakedes was his name. Do a search on his name and you'll see that he was always selfless and excellent. Thanks, Drew. I still carry the one you brought back to me and think of you ever time I use it.

    Pocket clips can be broken if they are accidentally caught on foreign objects while wearing. To help prevent such occurrences, SOG recommends that you wear your knife in your front pocket, with the knife inside your pocket.

Damage to a knife handle because a clip has snagged is not considered "normal," and any such damage will be assessed under warranty. Learn more about replacing pocket clips in Knife & Tool Care.
