The hosts chose SOG to be part of the Jack of All Trades episode, which originally aired April 15, 2012 at 10 p.m. EST.
Unchained Reaction is a new series executive produced and judged by Adam Savage and Jamie Hyneman of MythBusters. The show pits two teams of varying backgrounds against each other to build an elaborate chain reaction contraption. In this Sunday’s episode, a team of designers and a team of construction workers square off to build the most impressive multi-step machines using the theme of “tools.” SOG provided the teams with a wide array of tools to use during the episode, including the Hand Axe, Double Headed Axe, FastHawk, Tomahawk, Pocket PowerPlier, PowerLock and the PowerAssist.
SOG was founded in 1986 by Spencer Frazer, a former R&D tool and die maker for the Top Secret Black Projects Division of the aerospace defense industry. SOG’s name was inspired by elite joint services military unit – the Studies and Observation Group – formed in advance of the Vietnam War to conduct covert operations and authorized to develop and purchase their own weapons.
