SOG PowerAssist Multi-Tools
The Powerlock Is SOG's Workhorse and The Center For The Entire Multi-Tool Line
As one of the original multi-tool manufacturers, we have learned quite a bit over the years, like how to make the toughest tools with patented gear driven Compound Leverage mechanisms. The PowerAssist takes multi-tools to a new level by being the first to house two assisted opening blades that are accessible without opening the tool. When not in use, both the serrated and straight edge blades lock closed using a patent pending slide release mechanism. The multi-tool flips open easily and smoothly with one hand. Once opened, users are able to increase their gripping power with the tool's Compound Leverage pliers. In addition to the pliers and blades, there are many other tools like a file, crimpers, a bottle and can opener, a v-cutter, screwdrivers, and a ruler. to make use of the compound leverage pliers and other tools in the handle opposite of the blades.
Opens up to work like a normal pair of pliers, but with increased torque due to the Compound Leverage gearing.
Compound Leverage Plier Head
SOG's patented Compount Leverage system doubles the gripping power compared to a traditional single pivot plier.
Tool Open w/ Handle Covers
While one handle houses the two assisted opening blades, the other carries the miscellaneous tools.
Built to Last
The PowerAssist is built for heavy-duty use indoors and out. Lifetime Warranty

The SOG Specialty Knives & Tools S66N-CP PowerAssist Multi-Tool is packed with (16) essential tools, including (2) SOG Assisted Technology blades, while remaining lightweight and compact for easy carrying. Made of 420 steel with an attractive satin finish, this multi-tool features a full-serrated blade, three-sided file, blasting cap crimper, bolt grip channel, bottle opener, can opener, hard wire cutter, large flat screwdriver, medium flat screwdriver, needle nose pliers, Philips screwdriver, ruler, small flat screwdriver, straight edge blade, V-cutter, wire crimper and nylon sheath. The S66N-CP's Compound Leverage technology works by employing multiple pivot points that generate greater handle travel in relation to plier movement. The result is a leverage advantage of approximately twice the power of a conventional multi-tool, which makes every cut smoother and easier. SOG Assisted Technology kicks in when you start to open the main blades and completes the opening, while locks on both the blade and tools protect you from injuries and allow for safe storage. This multi-tool has a lanyard hole and a secure clip attachment with hook and loop closure on the nylon sheath for added portability. The S66N-CP has a closed length of 4.6-inches, overall length of 7-inches and weighs 9.6-ounces. The SOG Specialty Knives & Tools S66N-CP PowerAssist Multi-Tool with Assisted Steel Blades come with a limited lifetime warranty that protects against defects in manufacturing and materials. Each SOG product is created with the help of company founder and chief engineer, Spencer Frazer. Known for their uncompromising style and performance, these knives and tools showcase innovation, dependability and a unique, futuristic style that has garnered awards and recognition worldwide. SOG products have also won favor among law enforcement, military and industrial customers that rely on their tools to perform flawlessly in the toughest, most adverse conditions.
Sleek, attractive, and easy to operate, the SOG S66-N PowerAssist multi-tool showcases SOG's sophisticated style and quality construction. Relying on SOG's proprietary PowerAssist technology, this versatile multi-tool includes two SOG Assisted Technology blades: one straight-edge and one full-serrated.

SOG Assisted Technology Increases Speed, Safety, and Usability
When you go to unfold the S66-N's straight-edge blade or full-serrated blade, SOG's proprietary S.A.T. (SOG Assisted Technology) takes over. High-tension coil springs propel the blades open, easily accessible with just one hand.
S.A.T. multi-tools offer security and peace of mind with their locking mechanisms that are stronger, more reliable, and easier to access than other multi-tools'. When not in use, the blades lock closed using a patent-pending side release, which also double locks the blades in the open position.
Heavy-Duty Components Meet Professional Needs
With over a dozen components, from pliers to a wire cutter, and industrial-grade, quality design, the S66-N includes everything a professional contractor or casual do-it-yourselfer needs, including a V-Cutter that can be used to cut seatbelts, paracord, fishing line, electrical cable sheathing, and more.
Ergonomic, Durable Design Ensures Years of Effortless Use
SOG makes the only multi-tools in the world that have one-handed opening and gear-driven Compound Leverage. Flip open the S66-N and experience easy, single-handed use of heavy-duty pliers and wire cutters -- the compound leverage technology allows your hand pressure to generate twice the cutting and gripping power of other multi-tools.
The S66-N's satin-finished handles provide comfort on even the toughest jobs. And with durable construction that features gear covers and hex bolts, the S66-N is surprisingly light, weighing just 9.3 ounces. Manageable enough to take anywhere, this multi-tool comes with a nylon pouch with belt loop for convenient portability.
This S66-N is backed by a lifetime warranty that protects against defects in manufacturing and materials.

(Note that the PowerAssist is somewhat similar to the SOG PowerLock: the main difference is that the PowerLock has more tools, but the knives are much less convenient to get out. On the PowerAssist, the knives are immediately available with one hand; on the PowerLock, you have to open the pliers, pop the cap, and pull the knife out.)
SOG is the only brand which *encourages* you to take your tool apart, tinker with it, and replace the tools. You can buy some alternate tools at SOG's web site and have your multitool have the tools that you actually use. (But they charge an exorbitant amount when you buy the tools separately. Since most of the tools they sell on their web site come standard in the PowerLock, you could just buy one of those instead.)
Pliers: The SOG pliers are the best of *any* multitool. Anywhere. No comparison. It has a number of advantages over all the others:
- The compound leverage is great. Nobody else beside SOG has this. It's flat out cool, and it's occasionally useful.
- You can open the pliers with one hand. This is extremely useful, when, for example, you're holding a fish with your other hand. Some of the Gerber multitools (Gerber Flik, Gerber Balance, Gerber Diesel) are one-hand opening, even more easily than the SOG: you just swing them around and the pliers comes out. But the Leatherman Charge TTI and the Victorinox Swiss Spirit pretty much require two hands to open. Sometimes, depending on what I am doing, I prefer the Diesel pliers to SOG, because they are slightly easier to get out; but both are not hard, and the SOG is better once you get it out.
- Larger cutting surface in the wire cutters. The SOG and the Gerber Diesel have more than a 1/2 inch cutting surface. Every other multitool that I know of has a significantly smaller wire cutter (usually 1/4 inch). I've used the 1/2" wirecutter to trim small branches, when I didn't have another tool handy. (The compound leverage is really nice for this, too: the SOG has this and the Diesel does not.)
The only disadvantage that I can think of for the SOG pliers is that they do not have springs (they cannot, due to the compound leverage). Some people really want this, and if you do, you will be disappointed with the SOG. In fact, you will probably be disappointed with most full-size multitools. Only a few full-size multitools have spring loaded pliers (Gerber Legend and Gerber Bullrush; though there might be several others that I don't know about). For some reason, many of the keychain-sized multiools from Leatherman and Gerber have spring-assisted pliers.
Knives: The assisted opening knife is great. Once again, you can open it with one hand, and (though it's a little more tricky) you can close it with one hand. The PowerAssist has the one-handed opening for both the serrated blade and the smooth blade. The Leatherman Charge TTI has a similar feature. I personally prefer the SOG (I don't have to stick my finger in the track of the knife to close it, so it feels less dangerous to do with one hand), but the Charge TTI is quite comparable here, and probably has a sharper blade + somewhat better metal (but the SOG is still pretty high quality). The major functional difference between the knives is that the Charge TTI also has a hook cutter on the other side of the serrated blade, which is easy to pull out, whereas the SOG's equivalent of the hook cutter (the V-cutter) is quite a bit harder to get out. Gerber multitools do not have separate serrated and straight edges; they have a partially serrated blade. Most of the Gerber multitools (except the Gerber Legend) and the Victorinox Swiss Spirit do not have one-hand opening knives at all.
The remainder of the tools on the SOG are fairly inconvenient to pull out. You have to open the pliers, then pop open the cap that covers the tools, then pry the tools out. They are all pretty hard to get out, too--no nice finger tabs like the Victorinox. I'm really surprised at how many multitools use the same stupid mechanism for their tools: Gerber Diesel is equally inconvenient, and half the tools on the Leatherman are also facing the wrong way like this. Apparently some people actually *prefer* the tools on the inside, though I can't think why. (For butterfly-opening pliers, the inside tools cut into your hand as well--a problem that SOG "solved" by putting a smooth cap over them, which is in the way, and Leatherman didn't solve at all. The Gerber diesel isn't butterfly-opening, so I guess their design maybe makes sense.) Victorinox and the Gerber Legend have easy-opening tools on the outside, which is much nicer. If you want to get to a screwdriver quickly, the SOG (or the Leatherman) is probably not the tool for you.
V-cutter: The SOG has a fantastic tool called a V-cutter which is extremely handy for cutting a bunch of things. It's like a hook cutter, but in my opinion better. It is two knives joined with a V-angle, in an opening too small for your fingers to get in (so you can't cut yourself without trying really hard). It's intended for seat belts, but it cuts lots of other things very nicely too. I compared it to the hook cutter of the Leatherman and several other hook cutters and found that the SOG V-cutter sliced more easily through tough nylon straps. The SOG V-cutter has two disadvantages, though, compared to a hook cutter: (a) it's impossible to sharpen, as far as I know (though you can buy a replacement from SOG), and (b) like the other non-knife tools on the SOG, it's not as easy to get out as the hook cutter on the Charge TTI, which pops out with one hand. I've also used the V-cutter to slice paper; it made a very nice straight cut. In addition to slicing tough straps more easily, the V-cutter also has its blades less indented from the sides, which means you can cut closer. For example, I've used it for slicing dry bits of skin off the corners of my fingers (you can't do that with any hook cutter I have seen); it works better than scissors or any other tool. Only the SOG has a V-cutter; the Leatherman Charge TTI has, as I said, a hook cutter, and so do a couple of the Gerber multitools (not the Diesel). The Victorinox Swiss Spirit does not have any kind of a strap cutter.
Actually, the V-cutter is so useful that I took it out of my SOG and put it on a keychain (not in my pocket, but in an easy-to-access tool pouch). There's no real advantage to having it as part of the SOG multitool, and putting it on a keychain makes it much easier to access. You can buy the V-cutters separately from SOG, too.
File: The SOG has an ok file. It's pretty smooth, almost too smooth even for fingernails. I strongly prefer the Victorinox combined metal saw/file to the SOG file. It's much rougher, and more useful for me. The Leatherman file has diamond file on one side and a rougher texture on the other. I haven't had any use for the diamond file, but surely some people do.
Can opener: although it has the same shape as the Victorinox can opener, the SOG one is *much* worse. It does not cut well, and leaves a very ragged edge. Here Victorinox and Leatherman have something clearly better. I used the Victorinox can opener in lieu of a real one for years when I was a student, and I was just as fast or faster. Haven't tried using the Gerber can openers.
Philips driver: The SOG philips driver is good but hard to get out. I find that the Victorinox-sized philips driver fits a wider range of screws, but the SOG is a pretty standard size. The Leatherman tools come with an interchangeable bit driver, so instead of one size, you get a whole bunch, which is handy, but they have the same problem as SOG: it's slow to get out. The Gerber balance has two interchangeable drivers (for some reason, not sure why) of non-standard size. The Gerber diesel has an ok philips driver but it's also hard to get out.
If you really want an interchangeable bit driver for the SOG, you can buy one from their site (or the SOG PowerLock comes with one standard). It's a standard 1/4 socket size. But then you have to carry the bits, too.
Saw: The SOG PowerAssist has no saw. (You can buy one from SOG, or use the SOG PowerLock instead, but then it's facing the wrong direction so you have a shorter stroke.) The leatherman and the victorinox have excellent saws. In fact, the Victorinox has two: one for metal/plastic and one for wood. I much prefer the Victorinox. The Gerber diesel has a saw, but like the SOG PowerLock, it faces the wrong way.
Regular driver: well, I *suppose* you might use one of these sometime, but I can't remember the last time I needed one. Pretty much all the multitools have something that can be used for this, and for reasons I don't understand, they often have more than one of these only marginally useful screwdrivers. I use them more often for pry-bars than screwdrivers; I just don't find very many regular screw heads anymore. As with most of the other tools, the SOG driver is fine but hard to get out.
I have experience with Leathermans and Gerbers but this thing is on another level. I never considered carrying a multitool until I met this one. It moves like it is made out of buttered glass. The assised blades are crisp.The weight is heavy and pleasing so it doesn't feel like it will fall apart in your hand. It is just amazing compared to the other multis I have met. I guess I have wrongly dismissed this type of tool. I'm tempted to see if it passes the squeeze test but am worried it will not take the ~250lbs from a good squeeze, I'm not sure if any multi will. My wife would be angry if I broke it so I will save this test for the one I get.
The only problem I see is that now I want one and they are not on sale anymore.
on to the good... The build is excellent and the pliers are better than any I have seen on a multi-tool to date. The knives are very sharp and hold an edge well. The tools are well designed (although hard to get to with the cover) and have a VERY good locking system.
Overall it's a good tool, not excellent. I do find the blade thumb assists to be dangerous though.
*Please don't flame me for the assist issue, I have a few assist knives and don't have this issue so I do in fact understand how to open a knife.
Spacer between the knife's is plastic and when knife is in open position it wobbles too much.
Tools wiggles and wobbles at the pivot point too. Tighten the knives and tools is not possible.
I live in Europe and remembered that thirty years ago I used a different American tools for my work.
It was an amazing quality. And so I decided to order it now. On box - "Made in Taiwan".
Five stars for the pliers and one star for everything else. Grand total - three stars.
PS: If you have a standard 1/4 adapter and bit kit, you can use 1/4 to square as adapter with a large flat screwdriver or a file.
