Back in time when multitools were not available one had to carry his tools in a bag, when needed for a tiny bit of work. It even required quite an effort of unpacking the backpack, taking out the tool bag, selecting the required tool and then the process of packing them again. It was quite a time consuming process for a task that could be finished in a minute or two. But now, thanks to the new innovation life has been made easy by the entry of multitools in the world. Multitools are a new trend in today’s era. A multitool is of no use if not readily available when needed. Easily portable multitools can be seen in the market that can either be placed in your pockets or in your backpack or a small purse to carry in.

Design and Quality Control
The tools in the buckle are crafted in 5Cr15MoV stainless steel, therefore being soft steel in nature making it easy to sharpen hence more cutting can be done with less sharpening. For the handle stainless steel is used which although adds some weight but keeps the gadget away from corrosion. Stainless steel being slippery in nature and difficult in handling this issue is overcome beautifully by SOG by adding jumping along the handle when the tool is unfolded. For good gripping along the handle there are some etchings. The finishing of the tool and handle has been done in bead blasted finish which gives it a quite smooth grey matte finish.
Syncs are multi tools that have been crafted with the sole purpose to be worn, because of the design it ensures to stay with you wherever you go. Not to worry if you are not wearing pants on a particular day, it comes with a detachable base so simply clip it with your boots or bag straps.
