    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.


Customer Ratings & Reviews

Trident Elite - Satin is rated 4.4839 out of 5 by 31.
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.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great tactical or edc knife! I've had this knife for a year now and it's still very sharp! I used it on the field and have had no problems with the blade. I haven't tried the glass breaker yet but have found other uses for it at the ranch for marking some wood materials. The seatbelt cover I had some difficulty getting it to cut through. Great grip on the handle and deep fitting in the pocket.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from SOG THE BEST The best knife I own ! I have bought a lot of other knife brands but nothing holds up like my SOG knife. Great product I would highly recommend.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great knife This knife is a great product and tool that I carry every day. I carry three knives daily, one is a razor knife for the work that I do. My wife purchased this for me because of the multi-functions it can perform, like the design for cutting a seat belt in an emergency and the glass breaker. When the family is on a road trip, this is the only knife that matters to me, while in the car. You all know how useful a knife is to have on hand for any situation, for cutting, scoring, beating and so forth. This knife is heavy and sturdy enough to handle just what I use it for. I receive many updates and announcements from several knife companies periodically because I am on the mailing list but I don't need to even look at other products because this serves me well. I mentioned earlier that I carry three knives, two every day when I am not working. My only complaint about this model is the clip, it was flimsy and loose often. I did some custom work on it to solidify the clip. Yes, I would recommend this model for an every day carry.

This guarantee is voided (as determined by SOG) by misuse, abuse, improper maintenance, or alterations of the product and does not cover any normal wear or tear that might occur.

    SOG Unconditional Pocket Clip Warranty

    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. If, for whatever reason, your clip bends or breaks and you would like to receive a replacement, fill out the Clip Request Form, or email/call SOG's warranty department. Damage to a knife handle because a clip has snagged is not considered "normal," and any such damage will be assessed under warranty. Learn more about replacing pocket clips in Knife & Tool Care.
