With so many multi tools out there having pliers (usually needle-nose or blunt) as the center of their tool, Kershaw set out to make a one of a kind tool that sets itself apart from the rest of the multi tool crowd. What Kershaw came up with was the Kershaw Multi tool, an innovative pair of vise-grips packed with all kinds of goods that are wrapped up in a nice little package.
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 is one of most creative multitool designers in the market today, with the ever-growing popularity of their Power Pliers and Power Lock tools they have now come out with something more for us to drool over. SOG has introduced the world's first automatic opening multitool; with the push of a button this tool is ready for action quicker than you can say FIX IT!
The SOG SwitchPlier is a very compact tool
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
The Supertool for the longest time has been the largest and strongest of their multitool line; people swore by it and would use nothing else for professional use on the job.
Perhaps the largest Leatherman made, the SuperTool was a giant among multitools
