Although the Powerlock EOD isn’t designed specifically for wilderness survival, I thought I would post a short review because it’s one of the best multi-tools I’ve ever had the pleasure of using.
SOG Powerlock Multi-Tool Features:
- Power Assist Pliers
- Double Tooth Saw
- Compound Leverage
- Polished Finish
- Nylon or Leather Sheath
- Over 10 Tools In 1
- 1 Handed Operation
- Ergonomic Handles
You can really notice the extra power and leverage generated by the SOG EOD multi-tool.
SOG offers the only line of multi-tools that use compound leverage technology. The gears right under the pliers add torque when you apply pressure and double the generated gripping / crimping power.
Another thing I liked was how the double tooth saw cuts in both directions. It saves time and effort; really quite a wonderful design.
Other than that the sheath is great quality, the tool has a nice finish, I like how the pliers are tapered at the ends, the handles are a very comfortable grip when squeezing tight and the knife blade comes very sharp right out of the box.
SOG Powerlock EOD Review Score:
This is a really handy multi-tool to have in the field. The power-plier is incredible.
- Best Pliers of Any Multi-Tool
- Lots of Quality Tools In 1
- Comes With Sheath
- Excellent Handle Material
- High Quality Blade
- Good Lock
- Aesthetic Finish
I really like the piano lock. It’s a feature that allows you to quickly and easily lock each tool individually.
The smooth transitions from one tool to another and the power assisted pliers make the EOD multi-tool an instant favorite for me. If you’re on the fence about buying one, do yourself a favor and get one today. You won’t be disappointed!
