Aegis (ee-jis), which in Greek means shield or protection, is also the code name for the world's premier integrated air defense system and the sea-based element of the United States Ballistic Missile Defense System.
Our comprehensive Aegis line of premier folders is fully integrated with top end systems. Start to open the knife, and let Aegis finish the action with a bang, using one of the surest assisted technologies (S.A.T.) out there! Our trademark bayonet reversible clip, built in safety with red/ready to go, and checkered DigiGrip™ handles all contribute to make Aegis a platform for today's changing world. Cover your back with Aegis outdoor or tactical blades.

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.

Great knIfeI bought this knife for light everyday use. As long as you use the mini aegis for light Duty use, it'll hold up. This knife isn't ment for SurviVal in the jungle, it's meant for breaking down boxes, opening letters, and clamshell packaging. The only issue is slight blade play. The handles aren't steel lined so you'll get that in this blade. For about half of The price you can get a knife that will function just the same, but if you pay a little more you get sog's assisted opening, Perfect pocket clip, and cool looking Design (yes, I'm willing to pay more for looks). Still, the $40 range is a bit much for what this knife is designed for. A lot of people knock this knife because It won't stand up to what some people want It to do. But it isn't the tool that's the proBlem, IT'S how you use it. If you need something a little more sturdy get a Spyderco Delica. If The aegis mini is too "tactical" for you kershaW has some more people friendly knives. This is a great buy and We'll worth what you'll pay on a Website LIke eBay or blade hQ.
