It's my birthday and I'll give stuff away if I want to.... give stuff away if I want to..... give stuff away if I want to..... You'd give stuff away too if it happened to you!
Ok, now that I am going to have that song stuck in my head all day.... #facepalm
Here's this year's Birthday Extravaganza Giveaway:
It's a SOG PowerPlay with molded sheath, which I personally prefer over their nylon sheath because it's easy to clip on to virtually anything. The nylon sheath is actually really good too, but in this instance the molded nylon one is pretty sweet!
How are you going to get this excellent tool? Well, this year I am 43 years old, and I scoured the internet looking at numerology sites, scientific sites, occult sites and so on and found absolutely nothing special about the number 43 that I could use as a gimmick for the giveaway, so to commemorate that there's nothing at all special about being 43, I am calling it the Def's 43 Nothing Special Birthday Extravaganza!
Here's what you have to do- just make a post IN THIS THREAD wishing me a happy birthday (since I'm so narcissistic I want everyone to participate!) and you are entered into the draw I will make tomorrow morning (October 21st) for the SOG PowerPlay!
BUT WAIT, THERE'S MORE!
As a special little twist (you know, since there's nothing special this year! :P) if you post a pic of your EDC in your happy birthday post, I will throw in a little extra surprise if you win. Only those who post their EDC pic will be eligible to win the extra, whatever it is.
BUT WAIT, THERE'S EVEN MORE!
Seriously? Isn't the free tool enough?
Because here is something extra- for the next 24 hours, everything in The Multitool.org Store is 10% off when you use the code BIRTHDAY at checkout! No fooling!
I don't know what else to say, but that all of this seems like a pretty exceptional birthday celebration for a nothing special birthday to me!
The SOG PowerAccess is all new for 2017, and is perhaps the best looking multitool we have seen in a long time. With it's stonewashed finish and angular handles it is just as much a work of art as it is a tool, and as it features a pocket clip instead of a sheath, it is more likely to be there when you want it! The PowerAccess has been likened to one of SOG's previous designs, the PowerPlier, which is almost universally lauded as one of the best tools to ever come from SOG- and that's high praise indeed for a company that also brought us the original Tool Clip!
Ever have a secret that you want to tell but you can't? It gets a lot worse when it's a case of you can't tell yet. I have- in fact, I have been really resisting the urge to go public with something that we have been working on for a while, but it's finally time!
There are a lot of things in life that I don't like and I could easily fill volumes of books with my complaining about things in general and with alarming specificity. I really could, as evidenced by the fact that this website has completely grown from my ability to complain about things and tell the world what I like and, more often what I don't like.
The 2017 SHOT Show (Shooting, Hunting and Outdoors Tradeshow) is just about over now and we have seen just about all that was announced there, and in case you have missed some of it on our forum, here's a bit of a recap!
We've seen the 3rd Generation Micro Tool Clip that was released early, we've seen the SYNC II that SOG allowed us to announce, and we've seen leaked photos from the new catalog- now be prepared to see all 54 full color pages of the entire 2017 catalog in this official release from SOG!
It is that time again- time to have your say and make your voice heard! I know many of the readers out there may be sick of voting by now, but trust me, this time it's something important! It's the Official 2016 Multitool.org Multitool Of The Year Award, and we want you to help us choose the winner!
SOG has chosen Multitool.org to release some EXCLUSIVE information about a new multitool being released in 2017 called the Sync II, and it looks like a very cool new design. I consider this a huge honor, and I am sureeveryone here is going to be just as thrilled to see the new Sync as I am. As usual, you can share your thoughts and read what others have to say on our forum!
It's that time of year, and if you are thinking of asking for a tool for Christmas, or getting one for someone else but aren't sure what to get, here are some ideas (in no particular order!) on what to look for!
Multitools have been around for a long time and even before Tim Leatherman came out with original PST the multitool had a purpose; it was a pocket tool box. For years companies have made multitools a jack of all trades and cram as much as they could into a tool so someone didn't have to go back to the tool box unless they really needed too. That's the reason we love multitools, they are our constant companion that can tackle any task.
Things have changed over the past few years and there is a trend developing to meet a niche or demand in the tool market. Companies are releasing minimalist style tools that feature a basic set of tools and leaving out stuff that they feel a person would not use on a daily basis. I'm not sure if the design changes are because of culture or city/urban life but they they seem to be a hit with people concerned with needing a multitool no matter what their profession.
