SOG Powerlock 2.0 Review

The SOG Powerlock has been out for quite a while and has remained the company's flagship. SOG is a company that is slow to make changes in their tool line. They feel that what they make is darn good and they make changes to their products when they feel the time is right. SOG took a second look at their very popular Powerlock model, made a list of all the pros and cons they have noticed over the years and decided to give this old gal a facelift. Some of the things that SOG focused on with this remodel were the gears that drive the compound leverage of the pliers, new locking system for the tools and the ability to keep their tools from clumping when finding the tool you need.
The first thing you notice when handling the Powerlock 2.0 is the new plier head. SOG worked on a collaboration effort with Paladin tools to create a multitool line for the telecom industry. Those tools became a testing ground for what would become the new Powerlock design.

SOG ToolClip Review

The SOG ToolClip is another one of those fascinating designs that help define what we know today as the “multitool.” It is one of the more successful permanent mount plier type multitools, but unfortunately was apparently not successful enough since it was discontinued some time ago. Made in Seki City, Japan for SOG, the ToolClip and Micro ToolClip are extremely well built, sturdy tools that every collector should experience at least once.

SOG S44 Pocket Power Plier Review

While the PowerLock seems to be the first tool that comes to mind when one thinks of SOG tools, the Pocket Power Plier is perhaps my personal favorite. The more compact size of the Pocket Power Plier seems to be the more “carry-able” version of the big powerhouse.

SOG CrossGrip and CrossCut Review

SOG products are well known for their innovative designs and forward thinking that has made them one of the more popular toolmakers in the industry. Before receiving the CrossGrip and CrossCut, I was expecting something closer size wise to a half pint Pocket Power Pliers ; instead I was surprised to see something more along the lines of my Gerber Clutch . Initial impressions; I was fascinated by the quality and how SOG keeps making tools with those gears, but this time on a much smaller scale.

SOG ParaTool Review

The first tool that SOG came out with before their gear driven wonders the power series; SOG had created a tool just as unique and the ones they make today. What SOG came up with is the world's first multitool with a multi-angle plier head. In other words the plier head could be used in any position between fully locked open and closed. Enabling you to get into some hard to reach areas that you cannot get into with other tools.

SOG S60 PowerLock Review

With so many multitools flooding the market and companies competing with each other for the being the most innovative, SOG Specialty knives has taken the traditional pliers most tools have to the next level. Most tools have the handles attached to the plier's head and the tool folds at the pivots when not in use, even since Tim Leatherman patented it years ago many people have copied this original design and not much design innovation has been made since.

Probably the beefiest set of folding pliers available
