The Paratool is the only tool in the world with an angled plier head capability. The unique, patented way the Paratool opens allows for the ability to operate at a variety of angles (140-180 degrees), indispensable in tight spots. The comfort grip handles are smooth on the outside and feature SOG’s classic ventilation holes for maximum gripping. Be prepared with the Paratool. Rarity note: This Paratool model is rare due to being the first version V1, which is identified by the 4 ventilation holes wide in the grip and stamped “Patent Pending”, which makes it very difficult to obtain today.
