Although multi-tools are common in EDCs for their versatility, they aren't always the easiest to use. The SOG PowerPlay, on the other hand, offers easy access to its tool set thanks to its one-hand-opening design. For example, you can reveal the pliers and wire cutter with a simple flick. What's more, SOG's compound leverage system eases the amount of pressure you have to exert when using the pliers.
You can also deploy the tools in the PowerPlay's handles with a single hand as well, without having to flick the whole tool open. From there, you have access to a wide array of EDC essentials: straight-edge and serrated blades to various screwdrivers and a bottle opener.
