The news is in and it's great if you are a SOG fan! The winner of the 2017 Multitool.org Multitool Of The Year, as voted by members is the SOG PowerAccess! First off let's say a HUGE congratulations to SOG for making the grade this year!
It'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!
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!
There are a lot of things in life that I don't like and I could easily fill volumes of books with my complaining about things in general and with alarming specificity. I really could, as evidenced by the fact that this website has completely grown from my ability to complain about things and tell the world what I like and, more often what I don't like.
The December Donation Draw is in full swing, and to close out 2016 we have a customized Swiss Army KNife from our good friend Bob Lessard, aka SYPH007! If you don't know who Bob is by now, then you really need to take a moment and find out!
It's that time of year, and if you are thinking of asking for a tool for Christmas, or getting one for someone else but aren't sure what to get, here are some ideas (in no particular order!) on what to look for!
The clock is ticking down on this one, but there is still time to get in on this month's Donation Draw prize- a 1948 Victorinox Soldier!
Some of you may be wondering why the sudden logo change at the top of the page- it is in response to some very bad news I got last night. One of our early members, and serious Leatherman and Victorinox collectors, Joe Wright, aka JoeBW on ours and other forums has passed away.
In 2011 the company formerly known as Wenger Swiss Army sponsored the Patagonia Expedition Race, also known as the World's Toughest Adventure Race. Even though Wenger has been absorbed into Victorinox it seems the spirit of adventure is still alive and well with the upcoming National Day of Adventure on October 16th.
Anyone familiar with CRKT knives and tools knows that CRKT has never been interested in making the “same old, same old” kind of product, and you have to respect both their ability to create new and exciting products and share the lime light with their designers. Elsewhere designers aren’t credited on a product unless they have a big name, and how are you supposed to get a big name without being able to put it on anything?
