Stronger, safer, even more versatile.

The SOG Trident uses their well-proven means of delivering a knife blade to the open position with S.A.T. (SOG Assisted Technology™) Now using their patent pending Arc-Actuator™, 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.

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). We warn you... this blade action is addictive! Play with it once, and you'll be opening it again and again!


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.



Tester Review:
"I had an opportunity to test the SOG Trident Folder knife. This knife is flat out awesome. It has a great design. Finger grips, belt clip, lanyard hole, safety latch and the S.A.T. which practically opens the knife for you once you start the motion. The safety gives you the comfort of knowing the knife will not open on you by accident but is positioned and marked in red for quick deployment. It also has a cutting grove which worked great. I tried it on some webbing and a seat belt and it went through with no problem. My partciular knife had a tiger stripe blade which just set off the knife. I would recommend this knife to anyone. It is one of the best I have seen."
