You can download/view the catalog at this link:

No worries guys.... I've been sitting on it for a while now, on the agreement that I wouldn't release it before January 5th.  Needless to say, every time someone had a question or speculation on it I was blowing up inside, wanting to let the cat out of the bag!   :ahhh

Plus, that's my Dropbox link, so if SOG changes their mind it won't disappear again!   >:D

Powergrab looks really nice, but it's quite the $ to spend for a MT considering the Spirit, Charge, and similar priced tools.
Poweraccess is a winner for me, like the Baton tools. Just wondering their thickness (so as to put them in EDC bags and kits, like Maxpedition fatties and Wenger backpacks, where the pens go)

It is my first time looking at the full SOG catalog.
The small Centi folder calls out to me. as does the small Sync and the switchplier  :cheers:

The small Centi folder is the one that came with the Micro Tool Clip and isn't too bad for a small folder.  Don't expect to baton it through some firewood and you will get along with it quite well.  :D

But if you want to baton firewood, gut and skin deer, carve wood, cut ropes and slay a dragon and a T-59 tank full of ninjas every now and then, you will want the Vulcan. Great folder.

I have a large hand forged laplander knife bought north of the arctic circle for bushcraft duties.

As a fine scale modeller, tiny tools appeal to me. Opinel no2, spyderco bug and their ilk are endlessly more fascinating to me than all the world's stealthed commando cutlery combined  ;)

The Q2 always seems to be shown splayed in the open position in every pic I've seen so far, and it's got the gearing on it - which all seems quite confusing to me.

I also cant quite figure out if the implements (not pliers) on the Q3 and Q4 are meant to be used with the tool closed up in baton form, or if the tool will try to open while doing that.  :think:

Q1 seems reasonably sensible

Still unconvinced about the rest of the new offerings at first glance. There's lots of design decisions that I wouldn't have made. I'm still looking forward to user reviews though.

Seen like the tools are outside accessible and use in baton mode..

50ft isn't the only one being caution on SOG's new designs.
I found those designs while look good on paper, but they quickly fell short after some hand on usage, at in the past.

I used to have a subscription to Fine Scale Modeller.  :D

I was fascinated by a pic in the gallery once of a diorama of an LAPD garage featuring a Lamborghini being painted up as a patrol car that I went out and bought a Ferrari F40 model and did it up as a police car, complete with scratch built low profile light bar.

I haven't bought a model in probably 20 years, but I'd love to get back to it.

I feel it appropriate to thank SOG for being so generous to us MultiTOOLS here at MTO. They definitely did not need to let us get sneek peeks (even though I think it is good marketing strategy on their part) but I really appreciate it.

So, thank you SOG! :salute: :salute: :salute:

And thank you, Grant! :tu:
