You can think of the SOG Baton Q4 as the middle ground between pocket knives and larger multi-tools. It’s small enough to slip into a pants back pocket, all while being large enough to offer better handling and control during use, making it a potentially better choice for folks who want the perfect balance between portability and function.
Measuring around the same size as a Sharpie when closed, the tool won’t quite slip into the same pockets as your typical Swiss Army Knife. It will, however, squeeze quite snugly inside rear pants pockets and backpack pouches with ease, making it just as easy to bring, whether for a day around town or a weekend adventure.
The SOG Baton Q4 opens into 10 different tools, including a straight blade, needle nose pliers, a bolt/nut gripper, two flat screwdrivers (small and medium), a can opener, a bottle opener, a three-sided file, a wire cutter, and a magnetic hex bit driver at the tip. That’s right, it’s a veritable full-sized screwdriver that you can use for serious driving tasks – just bring a supply of bits to make sure you’re ready for the job.
All the tools are designed to lock when equipped, so these will be very secure to use. Features include a closed length of 5.8 inches, an anodized metal body, an included black sheath, and strong 5Cr15MoV steel for the blade.
Pricing for the SOG Baton Q4 is set at $120.
