Summary

The multitool for hiking and emergency response.

Pros

  • 2 powerassist blades
  • compound leverage pliers
  • versatile; good for both hiking and emergency response
  • tools lock in place

Cons

  • a bit heavy
  • limited long tool options
  • some of the tools might be difficult to extend
  • spare parts only available online in usa and canada

compound leverage really works! if you compute for mechanical advantage, it is apparent. but if math won't convince you, try splitting a coin with this versus your ordinary pliers.

and the pliers cutter can be replaced!

the c4 punch can also be used to shatter glass.

has 2 power-assisted blades, one of which is serrated. too bad the manual does not recommend deploying both at the same time. will make for a more lethal weapon.

bought the black oxide finish. upon opening, some of that finish transferred to my hands.

too bad you can't buy spare parts and additional tools online and shipped internationally. they're only available through the sog website, and they only deliver to the usa and canada.
