So, whats up with the tip of the cap-lifter and can-opener?
Anyone know what the tool to the right (arrow) is?

Finally: all outside tools :tu:

Looks like a really crappy awl to me.

There appear to be no fingernail holes on the openers, so I assume the tips of them are to assist deployment.
Awl with sewing hole and fingernail hole.
PowerAccess has all outside tools.

Screwdriver? They are round.
If we compare Poweraccess Delux (left) with the Powerlitre, the two tools are weird. Maybe, that is to open those tools.

    So where is the corkscrew?

    I'm noticing different looking lock on the litre and pint from those found on the accesses. Plierhead looks different as well. I'm excited to see new scissors, I just hope these are better than the old SOG scissors.

    It looks like they updated the site and corrected the missing photo. Here's the PowerLiter. Weight says 4.6 oz, is that correct? That's pretty light weight for how many implements you get. The PowerPint is only 4.2oz. I am intrigued.

    Thanks Kampf!!

    they look much better than I originally thought.
    SOG seems to be steering in the right direction these past 2-3 years, at least to me.  :tu:

    Those scissors, though... :facepalm:

    I have no idea, trying to imagine how it would look closed up. Hopefully we'll get a 2nd angle of the tool soon.

    I'm kind of digging the PowerPint. That is a lot of functionality for only 4.2 ounces :ahhh
    Would rather have a saw than the serrated blade or the scissors but this is definitely on my short list.

    First I want to hear what Kam has to say after a hands on experience, but these look a lot more interesting than 2017s new products

    I actually really like the selection of tools on the powerpint, and I can't say that about other multitools from them. Liking that thin reamer/awl tool on it!

    Price for these new products:
    https://www.knifecenter.c...23d&mc_eid=1882ef30ea

    Wow, that is compelling pricing. Only $40 for the PowerPint? That might be serious competition for the Leatherman Wingman and Gerber Suspension. Fingers crossed the quality of the tool is reasonably good.

    I also like the looks of the PowerPint. Not sure on the PowerAccess Deluxe (which is a poor choice in name IMO. Makes it sound like a regular PA with different tools, rather than a "big" PA)

    If we compare Poweraccess Delux (left) with the Powerlitre, the two tools are weird. Maybe, that is to open those tools.

    That roundness could be due to bad decoupaging skills in Photoshop. IMHO in real life it may be a screwdriver indeed but the graphics dude/dudette was clumsy.

    BTW what is a "bolt grip channel" mentioned among PowerAccess's features?

    And man this design is so sexy! That aggressive design they started in 2017 makes me drool! :drool:
