Full information


Using the proven PowerLock chassis, SOG is the only company to apply Compound Leverage technology to EOD(Explosive Ordnance Disposal). This makes it a breeze to crimp blasting caps and demolition cord with less hand pressure. Another unique SOG feature is the positioning of the crimper device within the confines of the handle...not in the plier jaw, like all other designs. This serves to minimize collateral damage to the crimper and allows the operator to have full use of the uninterrupted plier surface. Additionally there is no weakening of the pliers that often causes breakage of the plier tips. The crimper produces non-flaring, high pull out strength crimps that meet government fuse well specifications. It is also GSA approved. Includes the V-Cutter, used to cut seat belts, paracord, fishing line, electrical cable sheathing, and much more!

    Compound LeverageTM

    SOG's proprietary Compound Leverage technology works by employing multiple pivot points that generate greater handle travel in relation to plier movement. The result is a leverage advantage of approximately twice the power of a conventional multi-tool, which makes every cut smoother and easier.


    Double Tooth Saw - Rotating Blade

    SOG's Double Tooth Saw design is truly cutting edge! The alternating tooth design allows the saw to grip while at the same time reducing friction for optimal performance. No outdoorsman should go into the wild without it!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Smooth operation This is my second SOG as my first one was stolen. I love it so much. It is easy to use, all the parts move smoothly and the tools are of excellent quality for a multi-tool. I have a Leatherman as well, but it doesn't hold a candle to this.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best Multitool I've owned this multitool for years and it has served me well. I work at an IT Service Desk and have to support my University's classrooms and this tool has been extremely handy. Rather than carrying all my tool bag around, this tool has all the tools that I need. The V-Cutter has been the best part of it, it makes opening packages a lot easier and it's also a great tool for stripping cables. I've used it to help make networking cables both at work and at home. The steel is extremely durable. I've cut everything from plastic, rope, wood, and even thin cables and it has not put a dent in the blade (I've used other multitools before and always wind up nicking the blades because of how soft their metal is). The only thing that I don't like about this multi-tool is the blade that comes with it. Mine has one of the partial serrated blades and I don't like how it's designed and it's hard to sharpen so it sharp. But I love how you can change the parts in this multitool. I've recently ordered the 3" straight blade to replace the blade that came with this.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best tool for my job and every day carry I discovered the SOG products from a catalog that was separated from its envelope on the mail processing machine and was going to rewrap a few years ago. I went to the website and did some Internet research and was impressed with the reviews. I discovered that some of the knives and multi-tools are sold at Loew's Hardware stores at very reasonable prices. The Powerlock with V-cutter and leather pouch is my constant companion. I use it daily at the Bulk Mail Center for working on the mail processing equipment as a mechanic. It is essential for many tasks and is easier to carry than a bag of tools. I love the leather pouch and am disappointed that it was replaced with the nylon pouch. I have purchased a second one with the nylon pouch as a backup and for my everyday carry whenever I am not at work. I convinced a new mechanic of its usefulness and of my passion for it and he has purchased his own.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best multi-tool I have been carrying this for at least 10 years. Seldom it is not within arm's reach. The fact that it is one-hand deployable makes it 100% better than any of the others, plus the multiplication factor gripping power! I am a welder/fabricator, and some days I use them constantly. Definitely the best thing I carry every day! Both my sons value theirs, too!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A must-have tool I've tried other Multi-tools, But return again and again to SOG products, As a locksmith, I use my SOG everyday, for a variety of jobs, from removing stubborn nuts to retracting latches. It's a toolbox on my belt.
