Micro Toolclip at Walmart
on: October 30, 2016, 08:05:21 PM
Forgive me if this has been posted already, but my Walmart has a SOG Christmas set for 20 dollars that has a micro Toolclip and another small folder in it. I thought these were disco'd?

Sort of- they were never really offered.  They intended to launch them, then had difficulties with production and they weren't so much discontinued as forgotten about after the initial run.

I wonder if that's an old set or if they are coming back again?

I would be too- I really liked the second generation ones, which is why I really pushed SOG to make sure we were on the list for the first shipment to come in.  We got both Multitool.org ones and regular ones, and I consider it a huge win for the site that we did, considering no one else seemed to get any!   :ahhh

I would say that until now (maybe?) the second generation ones have proved to be much more rare than the originals!

I just realized, the handle only has sogs logo on it, not Toolclip. Would that mean that these are new production?

Here is the original second generation one:



It says SOG on it instead?  That's interesting, because I recall the above version was supposed to be the only one marked SOG, as the design was shifted to the Tool Logic brand, which SOG had bought the year before.

Got any pics?   

What colors were there?

Come on man, we need the info!  Quit holding out on us!  :pok:

The only color was black. Here it is with the included knife and a closeup of the handle. Notice the different screws.

No Micro Toolclips at mine, yet.  I did find a sidewing with Revs for a whopping $37(!) each, though.

Official word from SOG- I think we are going to refer to this as the THIRD Generation Micro Tool Clip.

No word on a full sized unit... yet.

But they are promising some cool stuff coming for 2017 so you never know what they might have in store!

Is the Phillips end of the handle usable in this version, or in other words is it lower than the body of the tool when the pliers are opened out?

Unfortunately it is still even with the handle. However the bottle opener/Flathead works well enough as a Phillips.

So I guess this sort of replaces the CrossCut? I figured something small would come about

I can't say as I'm surprised.  The MSRP on the 2nd Generation ones was $20 (if I recall correctly) so you are in essence buying the tool and and getting the knife free.

Speaking of which, does anyone have any feedback on the knife?  I haven't heard much, and what I have heard wasn't positive.

The knife is a very simple and slim lockback.
Construction is with 4 torx screws that are neither flush with the back scale nor set, so they hopefully are held in place with loc-tite or similar. The thumb hole is not smoothed out and has sharp 90 edges.
The back scale is smooth and without the embossing of the front. It is so small and smooth it is difficult to open one hand due the tension on the backspring vs a frame lock such as a Mini-Paraframe
It is thiner than the Paraframe and twice as thick as a Croc; both knives weigh in at 39g, the Croc is 38g
