Good comparison pics Chako :cheers: I think I am very happy I picked one of these up :like: They seem to be close enough for me to not track down a Gen 1 or 2 as the Gen 3 looks to be as good of quality or better than previous generations :salute: I may be off about this as the Gen 1 may be better but this one seems to be good for me :D

I can definitely see the appeal of the SwissGrip and Mini SwissGrips now though :o :dd: :like:

Now you see why I have been such a huge supporter of fixed plier head tools all these years!  :D

Yep :tu: But now finding a Swissgrip would be almost impossible to find for a price that I wouldn't care to actually carry one :facepalm: :D

Yeah, good luck with that.  :D



I'm glad I got a couple of these because I'm kind of thinking of modding one.



The plier lock lever on the clip side of the tool keeps catching my pocket, which means that when it goes into your pocket it springs open and doesn't want to come back out.  So, I'm thinking of using my Dremel to grind down the knob on the clip side as it isn't really needed.  I'm also thinking of removing the spring on the handle to see how that works out.  I really don't care for sprung pliers, but maybe they are necessary on a tool this small.

I agree, but not high on my priority list for several reasons...

1. I only go nuts like that with Leathermans where I try to get one of everything. With the rest, I only try to get one of each model. Can you imagine the troubles I would have if I tried to get every colour out there for every tool made?!?!  :ahhh
2. The version ones are scarcer than hens teeth in my part of the woods.  :ahhh

I should add that my SOG drawer is getting tight.  :facepalm:

I had to to get them. A SOG knife and tool for $20? Yes please.

I really like them both, too. Only minor complaints. The knife is so thin it's a little tricky to deploy one handed. The trigger that secures the pliers closed is easy to inadvertently fire. Besides that I think this package is a ridiculously good deal.

I like the tin, as well :tu:

I don't have a scale right now that can measure something like this, but it feels like maybe 3-3.5oz?

Did anyone else's come with a rather dull blade? The build quality is pretty good on mine, especially for the price point, but the blade is not very sharp.

Thanks, Def.  That's a nice, light weight to carry -- about a half an ounce lighter than a Leatherman Freestyle.   

They have not appeared yet at the 3 Walmart stores I visited.

Mine came with a very good edge so hopefully yours was just a fluke :tu:

Of all the knives I have owned in my life, a SOG model, the Mini Pentagon was the absolute sharpest I have ever gotten, straight out of the box.  I think I was scared to use it, not because I was worried I would cut myself, but because it was the absolute most perfect factory edge I have ever seen, and I didn't want to ruin it.



Not that that particular story has anything to do with the price of tea in China, but every time someone talks about sharpness and SOG I think about it.

My SOG Flash II came with a very sharp factory edge. That's the only actual knife I've had by them.

The blade is sharp on mine but build quality is a bit questionable. It was inexpensive but I am considering sending for warranty repair. The pin that holds the fixed side of the pliers is not peened properly and can be pulled out a bit. The file was a bit bent and one side has little to no texture.

Bought mine today. They mustn't have been out long--about two weeks ago, they didn't have the least idea what I was talking about, and I couldn't find them anywhere in the store.   In mine, they were in Sporting Goods, stocked in red cartons with Buck knife sets and a big Bowie. Got lucky--it was the last one in stock. Only thing I can complain about--the casting wasn't cleaned up on the Phillips driver/plier handle, meaning it looks chipped. Still works good. My file's a bit warped, but I don't mind that.  I like the solid build on the Centi II, but that huge cutout on the blade compromises strength, and the blade's a bit flexible as a result.

I filled out the SOG warranty form and sent it off today. We'll see how it goes. I've sent a few things into Leatherman in the past but this is the time I've sent anything to SOG.

that thing cuts like the Dickens, I am actually scared to use it (it doesn't lock and the spring to put it back in is very strong and stiff)
