    SOG Assisted Technology

    SOG Assisted Technology

    SOG Assisted Technology (S.A.T.) works through the balance of opposing high-tension coil springs. As you initiate the opening action, the force propelling your blade open becomes greater than the force keeping it closed. The result is a blade that springs open instantly once it is engaged, seemingly on its own.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Loved It I bought this knife about 1 1/2 years ago. It kept it's blade, it looked good and I carried it almost everywhere. Was at The Masters on Tuesday, forgot to not take it with me, had been in crowd to get in for an hour, had to empty pockets like at airport, they wouldn't let me take it in, I wasn't getting out of line, so ticket person now has a great knife. I ordered a new one this morning.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from A beautiful dissapointment This knife was my first pick amongst a wide variety of competitor brand name blades, that begun a healthy and consistent knife collection ever since. I was looking for something small and discreet, not cheap, recognizable, not overly expensive, nice looking, of good quality, and functioning. This was my first serious knife purchase even though I have admired knives all my life. I told the sales clerk my price range of $80-$100 and was presented a sorted bunch of small lightweight blades from spiderco, benchmade, kershaw and a couple of others. What really caught my eye was the aegis mini. It was beau fitful and fit all I was asking in a pocket knife. Even though the clerk tried to talk me into a Delica4 I was set on the mini aegis. After years of purchasing and researching blades since then I have to say that I'm very dissapointed with the quality off aegis and believe it to be largely over priced. But in all honesty I still think it is beautiful.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The best all around knofe I've ever owned! I owned several knives, including SOG products in the past. One day, my son who was in the Navy, gave me his old Aegis Mini. It was the ideal knife I was always looking for. The SAT opening system is unmatched by any other knives I had tried. Every time I see a new knife, and I try and talk myself into buying it, all I have to do is get out the new Aegis Mini I recently purchased and I am unable to find any reason that it would ever be a better knife than I already own. So if you are looking for the best all around knife, with unmatched features and operation, you will never be disappointed with the Aegis Mini. I retired the one my son gave me so nothing ever happens to it. It is one of the most special gifts he ever gave me because he loves his SOG knives even more than me.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A great everyday carry knife I bought this knife about a year and a half ago, I have loved it. I have carried it almost everyday since buying it. This was my first SOG knife and I didn't know what to expect but I really enjoyed the safety and how quick it ope;ned with just one hand. I have used the knife from snorkeling in the Pacific to hiking in the desert of AZ, and it has held up well.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from great customer service I bought this knife approximately 3 years ago. I broke the tip somehow (appx1/8in) I called customer service and they said to mail it in and they would see if could be reshaped. If not the blade replacement was only $25 so at worst was going to cost that. A week and a half later I got my knife back good as new. It didn't cost anything and they didn't ask for proof of purchase. Was really easy to deal with not to mention a good quality product. I will carry Sog from now on.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Easy to carry everyday knife I have been using the Aegis Mini for about a year, it is my everyday carry knife. I like the combo blade, small sized, and easy to operate opening. I also appreciate the safety, just in case I leave it where my children could grab it. The only maintenance I have had to do in a year (it is due for a sharpening....) is to tighten the screw that holds the pocket clip. It became loose, but was very easy to fix. The knife is lightweight, and I love the low profile carry clip that keeps it securely in my pocket. I plan on buying a larger knife soon to replace it as my everyday carry, but it will be my reliable back up knife.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The perfect EDC Have had the mini Aegis for about a year. The perfect EDC knife. Sharp as a razor, maintains edge, and is perfect clipped inside front pocket. Opens in a flash. Get one. You won't be disappointed.

    SOG Unconditional Pocket Clip Warranty

    Pocket clips can be broken if they are accidentally caught on foreign objects while wearing. To help prevent such occurrences, SOG recommends that you wear your knife in your front pocket, with the knife inside your pocket. If, for whatever reason, your clip bends or breaks and you would like to receive a replacement, fill out the Clip Request Form, or email/call SOG's warranty department. Damage to a knife handle because a clip has snagged is not considered "normal," and any such damage will be assessed under warranty. Learn more about replacing pocket clips in Knife & Tool Care.
