You have let us know, that quick access is a must. Just flip our tools out with one hand and see for yourself how well we listened. Versatility in the field is a necessity and heavy duty construction provides access. There is also a myriad of features that you might not readily see, like our saws cut faster and our files shave better. And while you are at it check out one of the best scissors in the business. Does all this make sense? You bet, which is why leading military forces choose SOG!
SOG's proprietary Compound Leverage technology works by employing multiple pivot points that generate greater handle travel in relation to plier movement. The result is a leverage advantage of approximately twice the power of a conventional multi-tool, which makes every cut smoother and easier.
SOG is beloved by those who enjoy cutting tools meant to thrive in adverse conditions andwell designed tactical knives. It stands to reason, since the company itself has roots in the military. During the Vietnam war, a special ops team known as MACV-SOG executed several covert missions, during which they carried a unique combat knife into the jungle. That same knife inspired knife maker Spencer Frazerto reproduce the original SOG Bowie knife and pay tribute to the special ops unit that created it. What began as a single commemorative model soon became a full line of innovative tools - field-proven by US Special Forces, even honored as the Navy SEAL knife of choice. Today, SOG knives are carried with confidence into the most demanding situations. Forged out of tradition, hardened in the field, honed for you.
