    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.


Customer Ratings & Reviews

Aegis - Clam Pack is rated 4.8704 out of 5 by 54.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from My all time favorite EDC Knife!! This was the first SOG knife I bought. I have watched nutnfancy reviews of this knife and decided to give it a expectations heave been exceeded, the 10 out of 10 review should be 11 out of 10 or more!! This is the toughest, lightest, and most comfortable handled knife I own (I own many).The look of the Black Tini blade and Camo handle is very cool. I have since bought Mini Aegis, Zoom, Flash I and II, Trident, Tomahawk, and am looking at the Toothlock now.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome Knife!! I have had this knife for about 6 months. It is easy to deploy and the blade is really sharp. I highly recommend anyone picking this great knife up.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from High value EDC blade I bought my Aegis back in 2011 and it has been in my pocket almost every day since. The SOG pocket clips are well made and excellent for keeping a low profile. The drop point blade has a very sharp tip and enough belly to accomplish your everyday cutting tasks.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Aegis Is an Awesome Knife I bought the Aegis about 6 months ago, it is a light weight but very durable knife, the locking mechanism is strong, blade very sharp and it hold an edge very well, the spring assist helps me opening it when my arthritis is acting up.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome EDC I've owned my Aegis for several years. It's The Best EDC I've owned. I love everything about this. Best value in its class. So glad I found this SOG knife!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing knife. No shortcomings at all. After buying my first SOG, a small Flash, I wanted a bigger blade for the outdoors--but something I could still EDC. I had given my father a folding Trident, which he loves, so I decided to grab a (then) brand-new knife. I got my Aegis in the first few weeks of sale. Razor-sharp, fantastic grip, and great ergonomics. My only very-slightly-negative thought is that it's not nearly the fastest-opening assist in the line. But, then again, maybe comparing it to a Flash isn't exactly fair.

    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.
