SOG Sync I Multitool
Not unlike their belt-appropriate Sync II, SOG’s Sync I Multitool is ready on a moment’s notice, only it’s smaller and thus more appropriate for attaching to a backpack strap, boot, or even a smaller belt. One hand’s all that’s needed for release from its clip mount, though you’ll need both to pry the handles apart to reveal pliers with an integrated bolt gripper, a wire cutter, crimper, a ruler, a bottle opener, an awl, a straight blade made of 5CR15MOV steel, a 3-sided file, and two small flathead screwdrivers. Not bad for a tool that weighs 2.6 ounces.
