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.

Excellent Utility BladeThis knife is light weight, assisted, and an exceptional utility blade. Easy to handle with one hand and very sleek. Easily my favorite work blade.

Fantastic EDC KnifeI 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.

Disagree with the videoI 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.

Loved ItI 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.

A beautiful dissapointmentThis knife was my first pick amongst a wide variety of competitor brand name blades, that begun a healthy and consistent knife collection ever since. I was looking for something small and discreet, not cheap, recognizable, not overly expensive, nice looking, of good quality, and functioning. This was my first serious knife purchase even though I have admired knives all my life. I told the sales clerk my price range of $80-$100 and was presented a sorted bunch of small lightweight blades from spiderco, benchmade, kershaw and a couple of others. What really caught my eye was the aegis mini. It was beau fitful and fit all I was asking in a pocket knife. Even though the clerk tried to talk me into a Delica4 I was set on the mini aegis. After years of purchasing and researching blades since then I have to say that I'm very dissapointed with the quality off aegis and believe it to be largely over priced. But in all honesty I still think it is beautiful.

The best all around knofe I've ever owned!I owned several knives, including SOG products in the past. One day, my son who was in the Navy, gave me his old Aegis Mini. It was the ideal knife I was always looking for. The SAT opening system is unmatched by any other knives I had tried. Every time I see a new knife, and I try and talk myself into buying it, all I have to do is get out the new Aegis Mini I recently purchased and I am unable to find any reason that it would ever be a better knife than I already own. So if you are looking for the best all around knife, with unmatched features and operation, you will never be disappointed with the Aegis Mini. I retired the one my son gave me so nothing ever happens to it. It is one of the most special gifts he ever gave me because he loves his SOG knives even more than me.
