    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 Durable and Dependable I have used this knife everyday since 2009. It is without question my favorite pocket knife I have ever owned.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent Love everything about this knife, except the pocket clip. Wish it would stay a little tighter, since it tries to slip off any and all pockets that I have. No big deal.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Loved it!!! I owned the knife for 2yrs and sadly enough lost it 80' up a tree and have yet to replace it w a suitable knife. I'd like to purchase another just have yet to find the finances or time.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Exotic and fun! I've had this knife for a couple of years now, still up and strong. At first, when I received the Aegis, I thought the whole knife wasn't like any other. The SOG grip at first may seem unusual as no other knife has that feature. As funny as it looks, it actually works well! I've tested it in the rain, and in the heat with sweat, really worked. The blade came quite sharp, maybe not 'razor sharp' but definitely sharp enough for an EDC. The blade cut through quite a lot as you would expect from a normal EDC, but my personal favourite is with cooking. Yup, cutting raw vegies, steak and food prep...It cut like a dream! The AUS8 steel really worked out as well. It hadn't rusted yet as i was only working on light things, but noticeably the blade does get slightly dull after a while. Thanks to the steel properties, it was soft enough to get it up back razor sharp. The locking mechanism may be the only weak point of this knife. As I flick the blade out, I get a solid locking sound that reassures me that the blade is open and locked. All features were accessible with one hand, but there is another tiny lock at the top of the handle that locks the blade in when the blade is retracted. This lock felt a bit flimsy and didn't reassure me as much as there was still a bit of play with it toggled down. The blade's pivot point was also one of the sweet points. Flickin' it out smooth. There was absolutely no play at the pivot point, but just make sure to add a drop of oil from now and then to keep it operating smooth. The knife Jimping wasn't too bad either. Unlike may other knives in the market, the jimping on the Aegis actually worked! Using this knife with fine cutting, my thumb could really grip it tight without slipping off. The pocket clip tends to bring the knife buried, quite deep into my pocket. So a simple popular modification is to use a short length of 550 paracord to loop up with the clip. Just so you can pull your knife out easier. (see image) The thumb studs are a bit difficult to deploy the knife out with a spring behind the blade, a little force is needed. But once you get used to it, it will work well. Overall, the SOG Aegis is a great EDC or small cooking prep knife. It is very handy with quite a lot of its features, such as one handed operations and the spring assist. Feels solid, and grips pretty well. However, the lock is a minor weak point that may have to be improved slightly. Finally, there can be some mods done to this knife to make it work even more like a dream.

    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.
