SOG Collection Drawer.
on: July 07, 2021, 05:12:27 AM
Here is another one of those...what is located here type thread. This time I am focusing on my SOG collection. I am not terribly up to date in regards to SOG in part because I mostly ran out of storage room. Anyways, here is a closer look at the following drawer...

Talk about completeness... Thank you for cataloguing everything.
I only have this measly bunch, My intention is to collect every type of pocket powerplier, powerplier and PowerLock.  But I have a few exceptionally rare ones:
- a first edition paratool (4 hole rows on the side instead of 3)
- prototype PowerPlier sample (old lettering and additional markings, test batch)
- Patent Pending powerlock with old toolset. (right after powerlock launched their patent got approved, only first batch has "pending" stamp.)

I have a few more on the way. Harley HD29, PPP master mechanic, first Taiwan made Powerlock pianokey locks blank handles.
Maybe I'll stop there for my SOGs.

Update....the Baton has been held up since the 19th at customs. Finally got in contact with DHL, and they told me they can't move on it until a manifest is issued.  :think:

At least they will not be dinging me with their infamous hidden doing business with DHL fees.

Them wacky Canucks are always very wary about imports.
Also, it's called a 'BATON', so it automatically gets flagged.
Just tell them hosers at the border it's a magic folding stick thing.

Still at the border. At this rate, I might have to drink some maple syrup to fortify myself!

Just got confirmation that the Baton Q4 made it across the border...tied for over 2 weeks at the border...very painful.

You be the judge on how that ratchet performs.
The only other built-in ratchet I know of are:
- RoTo dual driver multi tool
- Brookstone multi ratchet hammer

Maybe you know some more.
keyword = built-in, those add-ons like what victorinox or leatherman have don't count.

My initial thoughts are as follows...in no particular order.

1. Neat case filled with magnets.
2. I like how the bit carrier has magnets on the back. Super handy to just slap the carrier onto a metal surface for ease of access. I know the magnets are there so that the bits do not slide out of the case.
3. The Baton design is a bit fiddly. I feel like I need to use a lot of force to pull them apart to access the pliers. Likewise, I feel that a lot of force is needed to push the handles back together again.
4. The pliers are solid enough. I was expecting some lateral movement due to the design, but I am happy to announce my copy has non of this.
5. The ratchet is a cool feature, but it takes up a whole handle. Furthermore, there is no neutral setting. Only left, or right turn. The button sticks out quite a bit but that only makes it easier to interact with, if a bit of an issue when sliding the tool into its case. That is until you realize the best way that the tool fits in the sheath, then the round button ceases to be an issue.
6. This is not one pocket friendly design. The Baton Q4 is just a bit thick and long to carry it easily. If you include the case, the issue becomes worse. This is not a tool for the EDC crowd. I can see it as part of a vehicle kit or something...but there is no way I would carry it on my person...there are a lot better choices out there.

I have a SOG PowerLitre that should arrive later this month. I had to re-arrange a few things to make room for it when it arrives. I now have all the sheaths occupied with their respective tools to make a bit more room.
