A precision instrument for cutting, personal care, and the unexpected, the CrossCut multi-tool from SOG Specialty Knives & Tools (model CC51-CP) features gear-driven compound leverage that provides big-sized cutting power in such a compact multi-tool. It includes 10 tools: spring-loaded scissors, a knife blade, small and medium flat screwdrivers, a set of tweezers, a nail file/cleaner, bottle opener, pick, and rulers. It also features a lanyard loop.
Compound Leverage has become a SOG patented trademark for folding tools. With the same hand pressure you will generate twice the wire cutting and gripping power than all other conventional designs.
Caring for Your Multi-Tool
Regularly clean and fully dry your multi-tool, especially after use. When necessary, oil the pivot points with a light oil. Be sure to clean the blade and handle set after each use. A mild solution of soap and water should remove any dirt and debris that have accumulated during use (avoid harsh detergents such as laundry or dish soap, and chlorine products). It is best not to immerse your folding tool in water.
To remove any debris from inside the handle you can use a toothpick for any visible lint or dirt, or a Q-Tip for smaller amounts of dirt and debris. Also, a can of compressed air is useful for completely clearing out any embedded dirt or lint. Apply a light coat of water-displacing oil (such as WD-40 or 3-In-1) or other desiccant (a drying agent), and then wipe down and lightly lubricate the tool's surface and pivot points. This will not only remove any dirt and debris which might inhibit the tool's functioning, but will also help prevent oxidation and rusting on the surface steel.
