I have a first generation stainless finish verson of this and love it so much I purchased this one too. I had the phillips bit break on mine (the first gen was a cast piece) SOG made it good by sending out a replacement as well as a bunch of extra bits and the tools to install them.

I think I'm getting into Heaven.

Thank you, and thank you.

FWIW my boss is ex army and he is super pissed that SOG is used on this brand.

He is a master plumber and bought one of these a few months ago and it was terrible. The locking mechanism was useless and the Phillips head screwdriver broke off after 2 uses (apparently it is made of some sort of composite)

Not saying it will be terrible but its what happened to him.

All 'stainless' steel can rust. It's rust resistant, not rustproof. Like anything made of metal, keeping it dry and out of high moisture environments helps. Oiling it regularly does as well.

Then again I'm the kind of person to hand strop his knives...

If I found a master plumber using a multi-tool instead of the right tool for the job on my plumbing I'm pretty sure he wouldn't be doing any plumbing in my house or business going forward.

This tool is more the kind of thing I'd use as a pair of pliers or wire cutters than anything else.

I love love LOVE my leatherman PSTII, have carried it for a decade and don't leave home without it. Plus I've used their warranty and trust them to stand behind their stuff.

So, not interested in the SOG.

But dang, I love the idea of those 'wings' that cover over the handles on these when you're using it as pliers. That might be the only thing I've ever seen on another multitool that makes me jealous.

That sucks. I've had pretty damn good luck w/ most SOG branded gear in the past.

Either way, thank you for your service and the review.

Mostly I've found that the wings get annoying when trying to use one of the tools that isn't pliers.

A couple notes regarding this from personal experience. If you're military or someone working with plastic explosives this doesn't have the "C-4 punch" to give long holes to put blasting caps in, so I wouldn't recommend it if you're trying to replace your trusty M2 crimpers. The covers are irritating and don't keep much debris out. The gears however are awesome and do provide a lot more torque for gripping when you're trying to pry, screw, turn, etc., with the pliers. Also, some units specifically forbid these crimpers for non-electric cap work up. The Gerber EOD tool lacks the gear assist but makes up with a punch and no silly covers. Also, don't try to pry using the knife blade as the metal is prone to snapping in your face.

I grabbed one of these from Woot last year and I have to say it is one of the best multi-tools that I have ever owned. All of the Gerbers that I have ever bought or been issued have broke in short order. This one just made it through a year long trip to Iraq and still looks and works like the day I bought it.

Those wings make for an excellent trap for your hands. When a bit of skin sneaks its way between the wings and the tool prepare yourself for a MEGA PINCH!
