SOG Trident - Sea, Air & Land The mission was to create an updated SOG folding knife based on historical proven design but launched from a platform of new technology. Somehow, when you see it, you immediately know it is a SOG. When you use it, you definitely know it is a SOG. At a casual glance it has elements of the original SOG Bowie, Tomcat, SEAL Pup, Flash, etc. Upon a closer look, it has features never before put into a knife.
The SOG Trident uses well-proven means of delivering a knife blade to the open position with S.A.T. Now using 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.
What also makes the Trident so unique is the patent pending Groove in the handle, which allows the operator to cut paracord, fishing line, etcetera without having to open the blade.
The Trident's blade is an evolution as well. Taking key elements from previous blade shapes created a distinct hybrid of form and function.
This knife has a tactile handle concept called Digi-Grip. With this variable patterning SOG can create a coarser grip in areas that will require it. Aggressive touch point scallops on the key areas of the perimeter complete the look. You will also appreciate the thought behind the bayonet style clip, which is easily switched for right/left hand carry or removed for pouch storage.
The Trident embodies the spirit of the elite special forces throughout the world.
