The SOG Reactor is the perfect EDC item to add to your rotation. It’s a streamlined 10-in-1 multitool that has everything you need, without extra frills. At a closed length of only 3.125”, the SOG Reactor is not only highly function, it is also easily carried. Best of all, it now costs less than $25.
First, the SOG Reactor is constructed entirely of 5CR13MoV stainless-steel. It has a 2.25” thumb stud activated, modified tanto point that employs SOG Assisted Technology for a fast opening.
When you close the blade and flip the handles, out pops the Compound Leverage powered pliers. SOG tells us, “SOG’s proprietary 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.” The needle nose pliers also have wire cutters and a bolt/nut gripper.
There’s a magnetic bit driver on the end of the pliers. Simply remove the reversible, magnetic ¼” hex/flat head/Phillips head bit from the housing in the handle, and move it to the magnetic bit driver on the end of the pliers. This is awesome because as you use the driver the torque works with you rather than having an awkward arm in the way.
The SOG Reactor includes a wire crimper and lanyard hole. It also features an attractive, SOG branded, tip-up pocket clip.
Finally, at the end of the day who doesn’t need a bottle opener. It’s also a nice hidden bottle opener with nary a nail nick in sight. Press the cam and the bottle opener pops out. Once you’ve opened the bottle, press it back in and poof, it’s gone.
