SOG Paladin Tools
« on: June 30, 2020, 02:08:32 AM »
So after years and years of looking I finally have my Paladin Tool Trio. Elusive 510 has been a unicorn hiding from me. A badge for this would be cool, because it is anything but easy.

Congratulations, pa_strunk.   My only Paladin is a PT510 which I modified.

I wonder why only the Powerblade (Kilowatt without all the gaudy blade markings) was the only one to continue and with Greenlee markings after Greenlee bought Paladin? Especially when it was available through SOG that whole time as the Kilowatt, while all the multitools had specialist layouts.

Totally like modding the older SOGs. Added a can opener and awl to mine. Hate having those empty white spacers they use.

Congrats on scoring the hat trick 
:hatsoff: :hatsoff: :hatsoff:

I too have all three along with their embossed paladin sheaths.

They are without exception 3 of my favourite MTs in my collection

Enjoy  :cheers:

G'day Matt, if I had known you were that desperate I might have been able to help you out.  But you're all good now  :tu:

All three Paladins do seem to be quite uncommon these days.

SOG company has changed it’s focus back to the original “Studies and Observation Group”, which hopefully means they will start cranking out solid multi-tools as well as knives like they once did. Supposedly they are focusing more on end users input such as EMS, police, fire, military, and special forces.

I think there is just as much potential in trade specific as there is in EMS...probably more. I used to be a joiner and the current layout of MT’s both old and new bring little if any benefit to my trade. Massive global market within construction that has remained untapped. Hopefully SOG will research and exploit this area.

Trade specific tools is in my view the way forward. Built to professional standards and priced accordingly for professional applications.
The seemingly relentless marketing to sell MT’s that in all honesty offer little over what was available 30yrs ago will hopefully cease. I’m sure there will always be a market for the layout offered today. But if MT’s are to move on, manufacturers need to up their game and start to deliver.

Let’s not even touch on pastel shades  :facepalm:

Do you have the Black Tip and Fishing  Tool. They are both great pieces to add to the paladins.

The West Marine BlackTip MT is a monster, it even manages to make the LM Surge look small(ish) & light(ish)  :rofl:

Yep SOG black tip has monster jaws and with exception of Gerber MP600 Fisherman or MP650 Technician jaws is the biggest I have in my collection.
