They had me at “blasting”

Like any red-blooded American male, my husband has a thing for tools. And he has one of those Leatherman things he often straps to his belt, just in case he needs to cut a woman off the railroad tracks or duel with a bear or cut a tree down, or something.

Honestly, I’ve never much understood the difference between all of those little tools, though. I’m sure my husband could explain it, but my attitude has always been, “Uh, tools?”

Anyway, then I was looking through the specials at today and came across this SOG Power Lock Multitool for $50, and I thought, Hmmm… originally $120? Why?? The product page there says it’s “everything the professional soldier or weekend warrior needs,” but I still wasn’t sure. So I went to the Amazon page (where it’s still $67) and it says this is “an ideal tool for crimping blasting caps and demolition cord with minimal hand pressure.”

Well, then. I feel kind of manly, just reading that. Don’t you?


  1. Looks like a swiss army knife on ‘roids.

  2. I’m suddenly tempted to sing “He is a lumerjack and he’s okay….”
