Buck appears to have expanded it's tool line beyond the black oxide Bow Tool they released last year. You can see the BO Bow Tool and a green one right behind it. It looks like the same chassis, but a different color scheme. I haven't found any deets on that yet, though. Probably just a different color option.

SHOT Daily - Day 2

SOG ad on page 19 that says "Year of the Multi-tool" with super tiny pictures of the SwitchPlier 2.0, PowerPlay, and Reactor - the same pictures we've been seeing for a while now. A little article on Leatherman on page 59. Talking about a new company image, or something. Otherwise, a lot of boom-sticks. Some knives. A lot of other gear.

Interesting. It says both the powerplay and reactor are under $80 and 4oz

No way that weight is correct. But we can appreciate their optimism :rofl:

Finally, a good video, with lots of close up footage of the new multitool offerings from SOG. A good 360 degree look at the Reactor and PowerPlay.

Does it really have to be a bolt there? Or rather, does it really have to be a head there? Could it simply be that the head is on the other side and the handle itself is threaded?

You are right! I think the bolt is behind the outer scale, because it is definitely missing in the video. Good catch :tu:

edit: well, not missing. but not visible from the outside, I suppose

The Reactor looks like it could be a winner .

Shorter issue today. A lot of knives in this one, not as heavy on firearms today. Articles on Leatherman, Gerber, and SOG. I also saw an ad featuring Buck's new (just color?) Bow Tool.

Gerber video. Breaks down the Shortstack, which we has been out for a while, and a new sheath system they debuted at SHOT. The sheath is pretty interesting. It features a quiet-open flap, is expandable to the users need, and is of course MOLLE compatible.

Kinda interested in the new Skeletool, even if the carbide puncher is  :facepalm:

The Reactor from SOG looks neat. The molded sheath from whatever tool was after the Reactor in the video pushed a mall ninja button in my brain.

Vic's video was underwhelming and frankly disappointing. Why were they showcasing old models?

I'd say SOG has definitely taken the lead with bringing us new toys this year.

For sure. Very excited about the prospect of a Skeletool without the ergonomic fails.

For posterity sake, here is the SHOT Daily Day 4. I didn't see anything multitool related, but their was a write up on Benchmade :tu:

I don't know if I used posterity correctly, and I don't care :rofl:

Not sure if anyone else saw this one very Skeletool-ish but I still like it
