SOG describes this item as follows:
As one of the original multi-tool manufacturers, we have learned quite a bit over the years. Like how to make the toughest tools with patented gear driven Compound Leverage™ mechanisms. 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 hex bolt 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!
Compound Leverage has become a SOG patented trademark for folding tools. With the same hand pressure you will generate twice the wire cutting and gripping power than all other conventional designs.
Don’t believe us? Use the wire cutter on one of our Compound Leverage multi-tools to cut some hard wire and feel the smooth power- Then do the same with someone else’s multi-tool...
...and try not to bust your hand!
