...and I'd like to find out if my experience so far is unusual.
It's my first SOG tool, and literally the first time I tried to use the pliers, one side of the head snapped clean off. It wasn't even a particular onerous task, either; I was loosening a rusted thumbscrew on an AC unit. Repair was no problem, they even threw in a flashlight / sharpener combo. I'm just a little bit hesitant about the tool since, at this point, my personal failure rate is a little high. This isn't a common occurrence, is it? How well do they hold up when applying a bit of force?
