Full information


The Trident Elite features SOG’s patented Assisted Technology for quick one-handed opening. The slot cutter built into the handle can cut thin rope, belts, or webbing without opening the blade. The front of the handle has a built-in glass breaker for any situation. The Trident Elite comes with a 3.7-inch blade made of reliable AUS-8 stainless steel and a durable glass-reinforced nylon handle with textured rubber inserts to improve grip.



    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.

Customer Ratings & Reviews

Trident Elite - TiNi is rated 4.5278 out of 5 by 36.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Haven't Missed a Day Without Carrying This This was my first SOG knife and boy oh boy, it was a great buy. This knife does't only look beautiful, but it performs the same way. If you want something light, concealable, easy-to-use, and more than anything, dependable, you will NOT go wrong with getting this knife.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Excellent knife carry it everyday I bout this knife on 1/1/15 and carried it almost everyday for 7 months. Excellent knife blade holds an edge very well. The only down fall I've seen and it was the same on my other tridents is the lock is very stiff

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect all-around carry knife This is an excellent example of the versatility and craftsmanship of a SOG knife. It has man features that may be useful toggled with a strong sharp blade that is intimidating. Love the handle and small clip design that this knife has too.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great carry knife. One of the top two knives I own. Easily carried in my pocket, well balanced and extremely well built. I will be buying more SOG knives soon.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Great knife but I have a few complaints I bought the knife and right off the bat I loved it. Its a larger knife which works great because I have large hands, so it fits really well. I do have a few complaints however. First while the pocket clip is reversible the screw that holds it in place is too short to screw it in place for left hand carry, and second while only slightly annoying I wish that the switch for the locking mechanism was on both sides to accommodate left handed people like myself. All in all my only major complaint is the screw for the pocket clip being too short. If it wasn't for those issued I'd give it 4.5 stars.
