If one of your New Year’s resolutions is to be more prepared in 2011, then you’ll want to carry the PowerAssist EOD MultiTool from SOG.
This 11-tool pocket wonder includes a 3-Sided file, C4-Punch (which you can use as a marlin spike, tool scribe and glass breaker), a pair of cutting blades, and built-in crimpers along side the main tool: pliers with wire cutters. But what sets the PowerAssist apart from other multi tools is the technology that’s also included.
The two blades come with SOG Assisted Technology. When you start to open them, the S.A.T. takes over to complete opening and flips the blade out, so you can quickly and easily get the blade ready one-handed, and with either hand. (Demo in the video below)
If you plan on using the pliers for heavy-duty work, the smooth handle surfaces promote comfort on even the toughest jobs. And it also includes Compound Leverage that, with regular hand pressure, generates twice the wire cutting and gripping power.
The PowerAssist also has hex bolt construction, so you can change out the included blades and tools to customize your PowerAssist, and SOG’s new patent pending Piano-Locks, that keep each tool securely locked in place while in use. And there’s nothing better than a securely locked tool.
