wow, just more money that won't be seeing much wallet time this new year.
Gotta get one. I think 5 oz. is a bit too much, but if it carries nicely I don't see any probs there. PPP weighs similar, and has no scissors!

Can't wait to see what else we have :multi:

Thanks boss!!  :salute:

You may have missed the fact that this is a detachable belt buckle tool  :pok:

Well that spoils the fun, belt buckle knives are Verboten in our free democracy  :rofl:
Maybe not.

In this case the belt buckle is the sheath. Belt buckle knives fall under the classification of disguised knives, or something to that effect. This tool is not disguising the fact it is a tool, it just so happens that the sheath is incorporated in the buckle.

I'd need to see clearer pics of it used as a buckle before I could be certain in my own mind. Having said that, if it is outlawed under that law, Heinnies won't list it. If Heinnies list it, you should be fine - with discretion of course (usual small print applies)

Afterthought:

The more I think about it, the more I think you might be right. All it takes is an overzealous copper, and there's a whole lot of headache you don't need. However, if there is a way of using the "buckle" as a regular belt sheath, that gets round the issue altogether.
It has a clip, you can simply clip it onto your sheath (see last and about 5th to last pictures).

Oh, I thought that was something to do with the belt clasp. If it's just a regular clip, then how does the belt work?  :think:

BTW - the thumbnails aren't opening up for me, so that last pic is really unclear on my phone
I would presume you have to take the clip off.

From the text

The Syncs (Notice the plural here, there is MORE) are multi-tools designed to easily be worn with the detachable base as a belt buckle or simply clipped on a pack strap or boot.

And further down:
Sync II fits belts up to 1 3/4", thinner belts up to 1 3/8" are best used with the SYNC I:ahhh

The thinner belt, implies a smaller base implies a smaller tool... the Sync II has a little brother :ahhh :ahhh :ahhh
Actually, if you look closely at the two pictures of the base, you can see
From the front, that there are 3 screws.
From the back, that there is the knob for the belt, but the clip is in the way. So, I'm fairly confident that you would have to take off the clip to use it as belt clasp.
It wouldn't be the internet without people complaining.

Ah, so this is one of the buckles for the leather belts not the webbing belts. That makes a little more sense now.

So.... lose the screw and just use the clip in areas where concealed blades are forbidden .... OK  :cheers:

While I think the comparison to Sebertech M4 and the like is correct, if you look at the Sync II in pliers mode you will notice that the pliers to handle ratio is much different (shorter pliers head, longer handles).

Measured from Kampfs Picture I get a ratio of 1:2.3 for that one, for the Sync II get a ratio of 1:4.1 (both cases pliers:handle length).
Now these measurements are not really precise but a good indication that the Sync will deliver more force to the pliers, making any task with them much easier.
They are great little pliers aren't they :like:
Not really, the handles on 45505 are way too short for the pliers that size, and the handles are uncomfortable as hell.
I am liking the Sync has longer handles.

To answer a couple questions people have asked about.  The base can be used as either a belt buckle or clip.

And they have sent along the user manual:

They seem happy that we seem interested in their new products so far!  :D

That's pretty cool, especially as a backup tool I'd say, without taking up more pocket space.  However, I can't said I'd unbuckle my belt to get it.....

Thanks for that Grant. Nice that they made sure the tool can tweak it's own sheath for the carry options.

So ....... the scissors lock, but the screwdrivers don't.....?  :think:

Will the tools be of free configuration?

Will we be able to customize them like in other SOGs?

A TSA bladeless tool, for example?  :gimme:

Here 2 prices:

http://buy.wynit.com/search.aspx?cat=162862&vendor=1027820

Small Sync 67$
Big Sync 80$

 :think:

The tools must be locking, and the symbol of open padlock in the phillips and flat opener (the black one tools) mean that you have to deploy them to release the lock of the tools.

Old system of unlocking seen in other tools

The tool itself is not part of the buckle, the "sheath" is. You don't need to open your belt buckle to access the tool.

How the heck did I miss this  :facepalm:


SOG  :salute: this looks to be a very neat tool and cool way to carry it.  I don't think Cali allows belt buckle knives however if theres a way to make it bladeless that would be great.

I can't wait to see this tool.

I don't think this qualifies as a belt buckle knife.  The bit that attaches to your belt is a sheath, and it is very obviously a set of pliers.

With California being the big market ot is, I'm certain SOG did their homework on it.

I agree, it is not disguise itself as a belt buckle, I think that considered as open carry.
