Leatherman Vs SOG Shootout!

Part 1 9It’s not often you get the opportunity to pit a multitool directly against a competitor as the variety of functions makes almost every model different from every other one.  Occasionally though, we manage to find a couple that are close enough that we can match them against eachother in a very fair fight- last year it was the Leatherman OHT vs the Gerber Center-Drive and it resulted in a draw.  You can see last year’s match up here:

This year we are going compact as the SOG Reactor takes on the Leatherman Skeletool.

SHOT 2018 Coverage

For those that don't know, the Shooting, Hunting and Outdoors Tradeshow (SHOT) sponsored by the National Shooting Sports Foundation (NSSF) is the largest industry tradeshow in the world for the outdoors community, and it is an event on par with the Superbowl and World Cup rolled into one for the folks that like to get dirty and smell the fresh air.

This year we sent our correspondent Kampfer to poke around SHOT and report back to us on what was new and noteworthy.  Here's a list of what he came up with:

2017 MOTYIt's that time of year again!  2018 is here and while we are all excited about what new tools and gear are going to be announced at the 2018 SHOT Show, we also need to take a moment and look back on the gear issued in 2017!

As with last year's poll, each member has the opportunity to vote for up to three tools on the list, because let's face it, we all have a hard time just picking one!

Leatherman 2018

Leatherman Charge Plus TTI Multi Tool Nylon Sheath BHQ 79199 er large

As we get closer and closer to SHOT we are starting to get more and more info on what kinds of things we are likely to see from each of the big manufacturers.  This year the folks at BladeHQ are giving us our first looks at what Leatherman is releasing, something the folks at Leatherman were't happy about when I announced their new tools before they did a few years ago during the Sidekick and Wingman debut.

Ever have a secret that you want to tell but you can't? It gets a lot worse when it's a case of you can't tell yet. I have- in fact, I have been really resisting the urge to go public with something that we have been working on for a while, but it's finally time!

And, if you haven't seen the first three parts to this shootout you may want to check them out before this one:

OHT vs GCD Part 3!

GCD VS OHTTo continue our epic battle between large sliding head plier tools from both Leatherman and Gerber, today we are looking closely at the blades.  Since both tools feature plain and serrated blades, we thought we would put them together and see how they stack up.  Since blades are among the most used functions on a multitool we thought it was only fitting to dedicate an entire battle to just them.

As we begin, both the Center-Drive and the One Hand Tool (OHT) are tied at six points after Leatherman's early lead in Part 1 and Gerber's almost total domination in Part 2.  Both tools are going to try to pull ahead today, as the final challenge is tomorrow, and time is running out!

OHT vs GCD Pt II

Main

Yesterday I brought you the first part of the epic battle between the Gerber Center-Drive and the Leatherman One Hand Tool.  When the smoke cleared from Round 1, Leatherman stepped out with three points, completely shutting out Gerber and their Center-Drive.  With that much of a lead right out of the gates, can Gerber come back?  The contest is far from over, so let's find out in Round 2.

Leatherman Signal

Multitools have been a part of our lives for several decades and have been engineered to be a do it all tool box. Manufacturers include everything but the kitchen sink to ensure that we have the tools we need for any occasion and to keep us prepared. The downside to this is the tool is not specialized for a specific task and this general design makes the tool heavy. It also can be a deciding factor in which tool you purchase or edc if you have a collection like me. Several tool companies are designing tools that are specific to a job title, recreational activity or task and the Leatherman Signal is one of those tools. The Signal is patterned after the Leatherman MUT design and scaled down so it’s not such a massive beast. Weighing in at only at only 7.5oz the Signal is enough tool for the task and light on the tools so it's easy to carry where ever your headed.
