Full information


The SOG Trident Mini uses our well-proven means of delivering a knife blade to the open position with S.A.T. (SOG Assisted Technology) Now using our patent pending Arc-Actuator, the Trident Mini locks stronger and releases easier. There is also a built-in safety to lock the blade closed. When it shows red, you are ready to go.

What also makes the Trident Mini so unique is the patent pending Groove in the handle, which allows the operator to cut paracord, fishing line, etc. without having to open the blade. The handle also includes a Digi-Grip variable pattern for coarser grip in areas that require it. Our bayonet style clip is easily switched for right/left hand carry or removed for pouch storage.

    SOG Assisted TechnologyTM

    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.

    Trident Mini is rated 4.666666666666667 out of 5 by 36.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Solid EDC Knife I've had this knife riding in my pocket for 4 years, and it's withstood some real abuse. I use it so often the thumb tab came off the blade, but SOG just sent me a new one after I inquired about it. No charge! I actually have two of these knives now, and it's rare to see me without one on my hip. SOG has great products and terrific service after the sale. My only lament is not having more SOG knives. If you want a good bang-around knife, the Trident won't let you down. I've used mine for everything from eviscerating boxes and packaging to cutting ropes and field-dressing deer. If you don't carry a knife with you now, you should probably start with a solid blade like this Trident. I have yet to be disappointed by anything I've acquired from SOG.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great features, quality build. This is my second trident. I went to a boxing match at the Barcley Center in Brooklyn NY, and forgot it was in my pocket. They took it. This knife is with me on my boat. Love it

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from SOG Trident I bought my original Trident 2 years ago and am very pleased with this knife. It's the best folding knife I've ever owned. I'd recommend it and any of your knives to everyone who needs a great one. I'm looking to get a fixed blade soon.

    Rated 2 out of 5 by from Average edc knife Knife was the perfect size for edc but the spring assist mechanism and pivot couldn't stand up to normal edc chores I found. Mechanism is shot and no amount of pivot adjusting can get the play out of the blade. No abuse to the knife, just normal edc tasks like cutting rope, cardboard, and other small jobs.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Trident Tanto=perfect edc. I've had my Trident Tanto for use as myedc for over 2 years now. It fits perfect in your pocket with its slim design. Keeps a nice edge for a while depending on what you use it for. Sharpens easily. And the assisted open makes ease of access fast. Love mine.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great light weight tool ! The SOG Trdent in non-tactical Black TiNi is a great light weight tool that I set up for left hand carry. The tool fits in the left front knife/cellphone pocket of my 5.11 Tactical pant hand held up by the SOE EDC with the Cobra belt buckle. The tool is so light that the tool in the pant went through the wash twice and the drier once (OOPs). The tool is part of my EDC and is great for cutting twine on bales of hay with the seatbelt cutter. Only needs a Glass Breaker on the pivot end... And this great tool does not need to be open to be useful ! (And my hands are not cut up like a famous YouTube knife reviewer...) Thank you for the great tool ! tjl

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent as expected! This knife is extremely light weight, ergonomic, and hold a razors edge. As an outdoor professional, and avid international hunter, I demand top performance from my gear, which could make or break an adventure and even save a life. This knife has been, and will be put to the test in some of the most brutal environments/conditions this planet has to offer. So far I am highly satisfied and impressed. Keep up the good work!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great so far! Been about 4 weeks since it arrived and its been awesome. I haven't had a lot that I've needed to use it for, so it hasn't exactly been cutting and hacking everyday - so still extremely sharp. The assisted open is very convenient and just looks awesome. Locking mechanism assures that it'll never open unless I want it to which is nice. Worth a go if you need a quality knife at a very managable price!
