Alright, I've been waiting for these to come up again and now I've got to try and scrape together the cash to get some extras. I've worked as a scenic carpenter, theater technician, and rigger for almost 4 years now and I've been using one of these for 3 years and it is by far the best multi-tool I've seen. Those who feel that that Leatherman is better are welcome to their opinions, but in my opinion, the SOG is the heavier duty tool with better pliers, better blade, better saw, and just overall, better tools. They retail MSRP for $110 and street price for mid $60's.
Like I said, I've used one of these for 3 years now and I've retired my older model for a new one, but the old one is still going strong as my girlfriend's field tool and practically still looks new after years of hard use. The saw cut through chunks of 2x4 faster than my co-worker could walk back from the tool room and bring a sabre saw and an extension cord. The knife blade is my go to splinter removal tool (it's THAT SHARP), add a 1/4" socket adapter kit with the appropriate heads and you have a drive unit compatible with virtually any screw or bolt you'll need to work on. Even the covers for the handles are well designed making the tool much more comfortable to use than some other tools. The other basic tools are standard issue, nothing special but still rock solid.
One thing I have yet to see any other multi-tool manufacturer even come close to equalling is the combination of plier strength, ease of one hand opening, and rock solid feel that is present in the entire Powerlock line. The geared action provides a smooth and uniform one hand open capability as well as being the heart of the compound leverage system that allows you to use those wire cutters to cut steel chain link fencing with EASE. And only the Victorinox multitools have had the rock solid feel of a quality tool anywhere close to the SOG. Gerbers, especially the fliks and the multi-pliers, are notorious for their loose tolerances and atrocious rattle.
Yes, other tools will be smaller, yes, other tools will be lighter, yes, other tools will come with some big name you can brag to your friends about, but when you've got the weight, the space, and the self confidence in your equipment and your own abilities to spare, the SOG is the tool to get, end of story. I have bet my life on the quality of this tool before and I would do so again in a heartbeat.
