PPP one of my favourites.
Thanks for the info on the PowerLock GLBM. I didn’t realize the piano locks were that rare.Great job finding a very nice Master Mechanic PPP. It sure looks nice.JonesE
Here is a pic of my Power Assist.JonesE
Congrats GLBM on the early PPP v.1 and the PT-525. I am glad your PPP will see some pocket time. I really enjoy mine. JonesE
Finally got ahold of a Paladin PT-525. Looks like new after a cleaning with no notable signs of use. (Image removed from quote.)Sandwiched between the PT-510 and PT-540.
Finally got a very early SOG PowerPlier V.1. I have a V.1 already, but it is a later one with the nail holes. The early one has the nail nicks, and I had been looking for one for a long time. Bought this one "used", but it had no issues aside from needing a cleaning.The V.1 I had already will see some pocket time now, since it has light signs of use.

Necro boost....I have got a treat for you. I've recently found a PowerPlier I couldn't quite place. It's an early V1, but with different features.- The logo stamping is different and on the right face handle on both sides is a stamp indicating "BOTH HANDLES 9" or 22,5cm"- On the plierhead the nose is slightly thinner and the upper teath is smoother and less visible to the later V1 counterpart.- A larger gap under the compound leverage is noticable on the older prototype.- Finally the ruler on the older prototype starts from the edge of the slipjoint instead of the tool end.I've emailed Spencer Frazer about it.He responded and said: "Hihi . You have the first series of Powerplier where the engraving was somewhat crude. We refined it many times. I don’t think it is more exceptional than that but it definitely is a cool piece and represents our early endeavors in the multi tool industry. Thx for reaching out. Sf"He called it a crude piece XD. To him it's an unfinished product not worthy of being proud of. This is my first post here, been lurking a while, signed up because Grant told me to.
First of all, welcome to MTO .What a great first post, and what a great find .It's always great when you get to know some "inside info" on a new tool, and certainly when it turns out to be quite something special.I found this beauty a while ago (see pic), not as special as yours, but to find a SOG over here is already quite special, and to find one of the old ones, new in box is a one in a million deal over here, so I was really happy that I was the one who stumbled upon it .Greatings from Belgium .
Die glim, dat is zeer schoon hè.Thank you for welcoming me here. I have learned much here, time to give something back.Greetings from Duinstreek Kennemerland.
