SOG ParaTool “Yellowhorse” (S31YH) Why or Why Not?

Clearly a clash between the standard ParaTool’s “Utility” vs. the “Beauty” that Yellowhorse added with overlays of Ironwood, Turquoise, black jet, coral, sugilite, and sterling silver. Have you ever wondered “Why” though? Out of all of the SOG products, why was the ParaTool chosen? Why wasn’t a fixed blade or folder picked for the Yellowhorse treatment? Personally, I sensed that Spencer Frazer was very proud of the overall success of the ParaTool and felt it deserved recognition. In 2019 during a visit at SOG, Spencer showed me the wooden mock-up of the ParaTool that he used to show engineers it’s unique design and functionality. In 1995 only 250 were offered with a walnut presentation box, which makes them extremely difficult to find today. Regardless, was Spencer genius or not to be the only one to give a multitool this special treatment? Thx for reading this post and I appreciate your response.  Jay

  • Apparently it is possible to have too many tools;)

Those Yellowhorse tools and knives are definitely very pretty, too pretty to use IMO.

I wish I had one of those. When I first started collecting, that was an unobtanium on my wishlist.

I do have a 102 Woodsman Buck Custom however that I found for a steal at a pawn shop of all places. It is a beautiful piece, but then so are all Yellowhorse pieces.

I feel the uniqueness of the Paratool made it a great tool for the Yellow Horse treatment.  Sure lots of other SOGs could have been treated to such adornment but I'm loving the Paratool in all its grandeur.

I love your Buck Yellowhorse. The customization is similar to a few folders I had customized by David last year.
