SOG Baton

The SOG Baton family of multitools easily make it into our top ten multitools of 2017, if not of all time.

SOG have gained an enviable reputation in the multitool market for their strong pliers found on their PowerLock range of tools, and this knowledge has set them in a strong position for this, their latest exploration of how to make a multitool.

SOG have taken the humble board marker pen as a foundation for the design of these tools, and designed each of the four models in the range for a different audience. The SOG Batons are intended to fit the lifestyle of modern users. Their subtle design makes them easy to use in the office or workplace without putting a strain on your pocket lining.

The tools’ bodies are made from anodized aluminium for durability, with the internal tools constructed from stainless steel for strength and stiffness. The tubular design of the tool opens up to reveal a variety of very useable tools. This is one baton you’ll be able to pass on to your kids.

The SOG Baton family contains four members, each for a unique purpose.

We’re gradually using each of these for EDC rotation. Each tool has a great deal to offer. At the moment, our favourite is the Q3 – the best balance of usability, carry-ability and the selection of tools available.

All in all, the SOG Baton family have again set a new standard by which all other multitools must be judged. It’s exciting to see what they’ll come up with next.

Each of these tools is available in the UK and Europe from Heinnie Haynes
