SOG® Trident Folder Knife. Deploys in a blink of an eye!
The Trident uses SOG's well-proven means of delivering a knife blade to the open position with S.A.T. (SOG Assisted TechnologyTM). Now using their patent pending Arc-ActuatorTM, the Trident locks stronger and releases easier. There is also a built-in safety to lock the blade closed.
When it shows red, you are ready to go. What also makes the Trident so unique is the patent pending GrooveTM in the handle, which allows the operator to cut paracord, fishing line, etc. without having to open the blade. The handle also includes a Digi-GripTM variable pattern for coarser grip in areas that require it. Our bayonet style clip is easily switched for right/left hand carry or removed for pouch storage.
Cryogenic Heat Treatment
SOG's unique cryogenic heat treatment process increases the toughness and wear resistance of our blades. Taking the knife slowly down in temperature to less than -300°F and then back to room temperature.
This stress relieves the material on an atomic level and increases overall strength as well as edge retention. Knife edges stay sharp longer with significantly less micro-fracturing and edge-chipping. Its this dedication to making your knife SOG sharp that sets us apart from the rest.
SOG Assisted Technology
SOG Assisted Technology works through the balance of opposing high-tension coil springs. As one opens the blade the force to propel the knife open becomes greater than the closing force and the blade will open on its own.
The end result propels the blade out once the operator has initiated the one-handed opening action. S.A.T. works so well that right-handers can use their left hand equally well to open a folding knife (of course this works oppositely for lefties).More:
