Is it just me, or does the PowerLitre come with a lock to hold it closed?

Why the hate on the PowerAccess files? They work GREAT on metal. Not stainless (it will damage the file), but mild steel and aluminum are cut quickly and easily. The PowerPlay file, now *that* is a bad file. It's not even useful for fingernails.

Also... would it be possible to grind the bottle opener into a screwdriver blade? Might make it harder to open, but with clumping that's not really that big an issue.

I've put together a mini bit kit to extend the capability of our nimble Pint.

If you use the Victorinox bitdriver extension, it has a smooth flat shank without the cutout for quick-release holders. Meaning, there is more flat surface area inside the area that grips the bits, and it doesn't wobble as much.

Just discovered the SOG PowerPint at the local outdoorshop, and I thought it was strange that I'd never heard of it before...

When I got home I found this topic, that for some reason, I had missed completely 🙄.

Anyway, inspecting it at the outdoorshop I thought it looked like quite a decent tool in a small package.

So I thought, why not make the first tool I buy in 2021 a SOG (which is definitely a first for me, since I only own 3 other SOG products after 26 years of hoarding collecting multitools).

So here it is:



And I must say, I'm surprised by the quality of this one.  I expected tools rubbing against the plier head, locks that needed a bit of adjusting, a PE blade that needed sharpening...

But turns out SOG has it all covered on this one, only thing I might mod is the spring on the scissors, just like GLBM did on his PowerPint.

I actually like this little tool 😁.

How are the scissors on it?

I got the powerpint a year or two ago and really was not impressed. All the tools had some burrs on the edges that made it hard to get a tool out, and the scissors had some burr that made them catch while cutting, but I never could find out where to file it down. I ended up losing it when camping and didn't feel too bad, went back to a leatherman juice.

Maybe they raised the quality control? Anyone else have a good experience? Might have to try again at some point.

I was thinking about getting one of these when they came out because I thought that the bid driver in the back of the plier head was a genius design.  But then before I bought one, I saw 4 or 5 video reviews on youtube that all said that the bit driver barely worked.  They all seemed to have issues with the bits spinning. 

I just read through all the pages on here and it doesn't seem like anyone was talking about that.  Do any of you that have the Power Pint, or any of the other similar SOG tools with that function, feel that the bit driver works well?
