Recently ordered a couple. Could someone tell me the difference between the three models I have seen available...S44 the S44-N and the S44-L. The ones I ordered appear to be stone washed finish oppossed to the polished I see that most of you have posted.

Hm :think: Torx screws.  :-\  I'm not sure I like this "update".


Nice tool at a great price nonetheless. :tu:

I've had mine for going on a month now... Nice tool but it's hell on your palms using anything other than the pliers...

Not sure they are torx, they can be adjusted with an allen wrench so they are what I would call hex screws... however, I have been known to be wrong more than my share  :facepalm:

:doh: You're right. Hex screws. My mind went straight to torx. It's been programed that way for years by the knife industry. ;) I was referring to the switch from the screws you could adjust with the 1/4" driver they were using before.

Arent those called hex-holed or Allen screws? Hex Screws and bolts are the standard hexagonal heads, IIRC.

I really really really like my power pliers after I swapped out the blade for a saw.

if I could cram a scissors in there too while keeping the file it would be a dream multi for me.

it close the way it is. :)

I think I might look for a leather sheath for it. The nylon sheath is kinda ugly.

I'm in the club too now!

The tool cost £12 shipped from Germany and comes with a really nice old school SOG leather pouch.  The tool shows its age and is ever so slightly dented on one of the handles but it still functions nicely.  Besides, I like the 'patina'.

Being a compulsive fiddler I had to fiddle!  I replaced the blade with a v-cut to make it even more UK friendly  ::) and the can opener with a 1/4" driver.  I have also added a small screwdriver/bottle opener.  This is mainly to take up the space of those nylon spacer washers.  As additional spacers I used a single M4 stainless washer on each side.  Yes, that means I now have 2 bottle openers.  :drink:  Finally in addition to this I added a nice belt clip I had lying around.

Further fiddlings may include:

1. Filing a wire stripper hole into the wire cutter.
2. Filling an electrical connector crimp into the handle.

Dammit, now I am jonesing for a PT-510!

Heh.  It was an ebay auction from Germany.  I guess I just got lucky.

And just like that, I am in!

Just got it out of the mailbox yesterday. This is my first SOG and I have to say that I am impressed. Quality is better than LM. I got the nylon sheath and I like it quite a lot. Although, it is too bad it does not come with a pocket clip, because this thing is perfectly sized for pocket carry. I may rig a clip for it later. I like the stock tool loadout as is, but I despise empty space so I will add something just to replace those spacers - just need to decide what, though... Hmmm  :think:

Hi guys, this is my first post after being a big fan of the website and forum. I'm starting here because these were my last two multi-tool purchases. I got them both new on ebay for great prices, $29 for the BO and $35 for the 510 (both prices include shipping).

I have always carried a wave or swisstool at work or a spirit or juice out and about. I like to carry the spirit with me but sometimes I want to carry something smaller and less heavy so I carry a kf4, both tools are great. I love the juice but I found that sometimes I find myself where it would be better for me to carry something smaller than the spirit but might need to do something that might be more than the juice pliers can handle. The ppp is perfect for those days!

You know those days when you meet up with friends at one of their apartments before going out and before leaving they ask you to look at something small that needs fixing. If one of those friends asks me if I want to just come over and hang out I will bring my wave or swisstool, if they invite me over for dinner I ask if I should bring my toolbag!



I prefer the juice platform with all the outside opening tools and that swiss army knife feel but the ppp has it's own nice look and feel that is also great to carry/handle. The ppp's pliers just beat the juice's and i like the longer drivers also. If I'm just out and about and want to carry a small multi-tool I am not expecting to use, I will carry the juice, if I expect to use the small tool I'm putting in my pocket, it's going to be the pocket power plier.

I'm in :D  Got mine today, and I must say I'm pleased with it.  It's rather different with how the handles open and how the pliers work compared to what I'm used to with Leathermans.  The handles don't open independent of each other, but rather work together due to the gears (which everyone here obviously knows) and it's a smooth action that I like.  I noticed that it also has an available spot on each handle to add a tool (I assume).  I'm not sure how to go about getting them, or what ones would be best for each slot as I think they have to be short tools.  Any guidance on that would be appreciated :salute:  Here are some pics:

@ Detron

wow dude ive been busy so all ive had time for is a quick browse.  you got yourself a great little tool there.  I love the compound leverage and can squeeze the heck outta those handles.  I also like the slanted plier head as it helps grasp things without having to be flush against the surface of what you are grasping.  great slim carry and with the lego system you can order parts from SOG or find them online.  pretty great finish on it too I think, and if yours came with the little sheath I found that to be very comfortable to carry.

I'm assuming you're talking to me, Monrogue, there buddy :pok:  You must be really busy :rofl:  I do like this tool, and really like the smoothness to it.  The tools seem nice too, although I noticed the knife blade bends fairly easily compared to say, the PST blade, but I don't use my knives as prying tools, so that shouldn't be an issue.  I like the finish too, and the tools, while not locking, do snap in fairly tight, so that's good at least.

Oh, and it did come with the nylon sheath with a plastic belt clip.  Seems like a nice sheath that would be good for carry, but I don't sheath carry anyway.  It's funny, I have a nice little collection of sheaths that I don't use.
