LYNNWOOD, WA. – Field & Stream Magazine has bestowed a coveted “Best of the Best” award on SOG Knives and Tools’ SwitchPlier 2.0 multi-tool. The SwitchPlier is included along with 40 other outstanding new hunting products highlighted in the magazine’s September 2015 issue now available on newsstands.

“Before a product earns recognition as Best of the Best, it must undergo field testing by our experts,” wrote the Field & Stream editors. “In all, more than 150 products were tested, and 41 were deemed fit enough to earn this honor.” 

Introduced early in 2015, the SwitchPlier springs to action with a simple push of a button. The affordable multi-tool (MSRP $64), allows instant one-handed access to the pliers, making it quick to deploy for a host of jobs. From driving in screws, opening a can or bottle, cutting open a package or tightening a bolt, hunters will appreciate it because it’s fast, it’s smart, and it’s built to handle almost anything.
