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.

Rust is not acceptableI purchased this knife a month or so ago, I have loved everything about the knife, until tis weekend. I am a saltwater fisherman for leisure. I used the knife to cut bait. I did not even get it in the water. Now the thumb stud, the blade release knob and the lever it is mounted on and some of the hardware for the blade pivot are rusting. For this reason I can not recommend this knife. I am really shocked that SOG has used carbon steel in a so called quality knife. I marked that I will not recommend this knife, however in an honest conversation I would with a warning about the carbon steel used in the manufacture. It is the only thing I do not like, but it is a big thing to me.
