So far so good with the PPP, there are some definite design flaws but for me I can see this tool working out quite well. The compound leverage did seem to increase the force that could be applied but I couldn't really tell by how much. All the hard wire I have available was able to be cut by both the Charge TTI and Vic Spirit. So I had to move the goal posts a bit. I searched through the odds and ends bin of nails and screws and found a hard nail that I couldn't cut with both the Spirit and the Charge using one hand only. Then I tried the PPP (with a bandana wrapped around the handles  ::)) and was able to cut it one handed with even a bit of strength left to spare. Nice and with no damage to the cutters :tu: I'm a believer now :D

Yep, I gotta say, this is my first SOG product of any kind and I'm pleasantly surprised. The only real what-the-smurf moment I've had with it was using the "can opener". Seriously it wasn't just blunt there was 1/32 of an inch of visible flat edge on it :facepalm: I put a quick edge on it with a DMT extra-extra coarse hone and was actually able to fully open a can. It still needs another 5 - 10 minutes of sharpening for it to become truly useful.

I have a saw on order from SOG and was planning to swap the blade for the saw but looking closely as I close the tool, it almost appears that there is enough room to squeeze in a saw and a blade in the same side. Is the possible :think:

Ive got the saw instead of a blade and i dont think it is possible, i might give it a go though but i think it will be too tight for the pliers to go in  :think:

How does the saw work for you? Looking at the pics it looks quite well designed.

Well I received a saw for the PPP this weekend. I put it in next to the blade and found I could only close the tool by pressing the saw over just slightly while folding it. This was an unacceptable comprise for me. But then I got to thinking that if I swapped the positions of the saw and blade (saw being the outermost tool) then the taper of the knife tip might allow the pliers head to clear. I tried this and it does basically work. If you look closely as you fold it you can see the pliers head just clear the tip of the knife and then push it out of the way very slightly. It may scratch the tip of the knife blade over time but shouldn't dull or blunt it. If SOG would just make the handle a little bit thicker it would easily accommodate two long tools per side.

I will give this a try later but i did line up the blade in this way and it looks very tight and possibly scratch the blade and pliers, ill give it a go later but i agree i wish sog made a slightly wider version of this tool as i like its size and i woudltn mind it a little wider if i could fit a couple more tools, the paratool is like this in the way i could fit the v-cutter and wood was but the pliers stuck up out of the handles  :-\  that bugged me  :D

I bought a used SOG S45 Deluxe Pocket Power Pliers some time ago.  Got rid of the Robertson driver and swapped out the half serrated blade knife for a full straight edge blade.

Recently, I transplanted the individual bits from the S-45 into a Paladin Powerplay PT-510 frame and kept the PT-510 pliers head.

Wish SOG would upgrade the PPP with blade locks.

Finally bought a PPP. Been wanting one for years, they just don't seem to come up second hand ond ebay at all. Also put several wanted adds on this forum but no bites. Considering the quantity of gerbers and leathermans that go by i still wonder whether its simply unpopular or no one is willing to part with theirs!

Anyone have a fixed solution for the hurty handles?

My first true multitool purchase was a powerlock which i always ytake for the rough heavy duty task.. and the PPP truly seems like the ideal size for daily carry. If only it had handle covers (or simplier external opening tools like a swisstool) and locking tools. Its why i carry a leatherman blast... don't particularly care for the leathermans but it has the right size/implement/function for worldy use

I EDC a PPP, this is the club for me!

I took out my can opener after shearing off the screwdrive tip and put a Robertson in its place. I also took out the combo blade in favor of a fully serrated blade. While the implements do leave a bit to be desired, the compound leverage is just too dang good.

C'mon, SOG, make a PPP with gear covers and locking tools.

Fan of the Leatherman mini-bit driver, dedicated slotted drivers, and the Victorinox backspring philips. But not combo blades.
