    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 Excellent knife, holds a good edge. Had this a couple of years and carry it every day. It's no problem keeping it razor sharp. Love the lite weight,which makes it unnoticeable clipped on my pocket. Nice looking too.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good, Light-weight Knife I bought this knife as a light-weight blade to carry especially for dress occasions, as my EDC knife is heavier, bulkier, and does not fit as well into suits and dress pants. I have been extremely please, and this knife has become a backup EDC knife for me for over one year now. The only issue that I have had with this knife is that the tension of the clip has reduced in the past year-ish. I am currently in the process of contacting SOG concerning this. Regardless of this small complaint, I would still highly recommend this knife, and do not regret the purchase of it in the least. The blade is designed wonderfully for cutting, even on tasks that seem large for this size of knife. The handle is small, but fits hands of many various sizes, and the locking mechanism has yet to give me even the slightest reason for concern.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent Utility Blade This knife is light weight, assisted, and an exceptional utility blade. Easy to handle with one hand and very sleek. Easily my favorite work blade.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fantastic EDC Knife I have both the Aegis and the Aegis black mini. The Aegis mini is super light i.e. Approx 2 ounces which is insane for a 3 inch blade folding knife. I carry it most every day and it is excellent for opening cartons, cutting cardboard and most any light chore around the house. The thumb stud seems well placed and of course with the sog assisted opening it is open and locked up with virtually no blade play and ready to go.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Disagree with the video I agree with all the plusses in the video but as far as the negatives...Opening stud doesn't bother me at all, blade shows NO movement (up/down or left/right) ,clip is rock solid.

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.

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.
