Coming Soon from SOG- MTO Exclusive!
« on: November 29, 2016, 06:37:30 PM »
SOG was nice enough to allow me to share one of their new tools for 2017 and I jumped at the chance.  As far as I know, we are the only ones to have this, and so I'm pretty excited to share it.

And so, I would like to introduce the Sync II multitool, coming in 2017 from your SOG retailer!

































It is really, really cool to see this- a new design in the plier based tool category!  I have to say, I'm pretty thrilled to see it!

As always nice score,  thanks for looking out for us. At first glance, I'm like what the heck,  then there is this strange attraction that comes over me.

wow, just more money that won't be seeing much wallet time this new year.
Gotta get one. I think 5 oz. is a bit too much, but if it carries nicely I don't see any probs there. PPP weighs similar, and has no scissors!

Can't wait to see what else we have :multi:

Thanks boss!!  :salute:

Very cool stuff, thanks Def! And thanks SOG for the advanced look! That's a neat design, it reminds me of something I've seen from Swiss+Tech but it looks a lot more comfortable in pliers mode. I think we're going to have a lot to look forward to from SOG in 2017. :like:

May it be as the Pattern has chosen.

Maybe not.

In this case the belt buckle is the sheath. Belt buckle knives fall under the classification of disguised knives, or something to that effect. This tool is not disguising the fact it is a tool, it just so happens that the sheath is incorporated in the buckle.

I'd need to see clearer pics of it used as a buckle before I could be certain in my own mind. Having said that, if it is outlawed under that law, Heinnies won't list it. If Heinnies list it, you should be fine - with discretion of course (usual small print applies)

 :like:, If anyone gets it hopefully they can do comparison pics with the sebertechs and others mentioned. For me it reminds me of the LM Minitool if this ends up being a full size pliers.

While I think the comparison to Sebertech M4 and the like is correct, if you look at the Sync II in pliers mode you will notice that the pliers to handle ratio is much different (shorter pliers head, longer handles).

Measured from Kampfs Picture I get a ratio of 1:2.3 for that one, for the Sync II get a ratio of 1:4.1 (both cases pliers:handle length).
Now these measurements are not really precise but a good indication that the Sync will deliver more force to the pliers, making any task with them much easier.

Afterthought:

The more I think about it, the more I think you might be right. All it takes is an overzealous copper, and there's a whole lot of headache you don't need. However, if there is a way of using the "buckle" as a regular belt sheath, that gets round the issue altogether.

It has a clip, you can simply clip it onto your sheath (see last and about 5th to last pictures).

I will try an get some pics of the M4 when I get home and some measurement :cheers: It is about the size of a Micra though and probably not in the same category at all as this tool size-wise :cheers: It just reminds me of it by looks :tu:

I would presume you have to take the clip off.

From the text

The Syncs (Notice the plural here, there is MORE) are multi-tools designed to easily be worn with the detachable base as a belt buckle or simply clipped on a pack strap or boot.

And further down:
Sync II fits belts up to 1 3/4", thinner belts up to 1 3/8" are best used with the SYNC I:ahhh

The thinner belt, implies a smaller base implies a smaller tool... the Sync II has a little brother :ahhh :ahhh :ahhh
