Anybody else miss SOG in their heyday?


Me too.  SOG was a major player a few years ago, on par with or maybe ahead of Gerber depending on your worldview.  The Powerlock is still awesome, but SOG's MT quality and market position seemed to have really diminished over the past several years.  With all things in life, there is a vernal season followed by a season of repose.  So too with SOG.

That's a nice group you have there PN!  I always liked SOG.  They were built well and were different from the usual.  With SOG you got some unique ideas and the chance to customize your tools to your needs.  Not an MT, but I picked up a SOG  Prohen a couple of months back, and the quality of that knife is right there with some of the bigger names.

I'm looking forward to exploring the SOG world!  I'm excited that you can swap out tools, and even more excited that there are so many different models out there, both past and present.  With the exception of a few soldiers and my son, I've not come across too many Powerlocks out there, which is surprising considering they've been around a long time now.  I've had the opportunity to put my current one to work, and it gets the job done well.  They're the Krag of multitools: the smoothest I've ever used.  That saw, while short, has some serious bite.  I put the awl to work fixing a purse strap for my wife, and it definitely works!

 :hatsoff: Thanks!  They're a lot of fun.  She learned to sew on it as a child and it has a lot of sentimental value for her.  The thing that surprised me is the number of them still out there.  At least here in Pennsylvania, they're anything but rare.
