Full information


The SOG Trident 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 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 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.

Customer Ratings & Reviews

Trident - Partially Serrated, TigerStripe is rated 4.780487804878049 out of 5 by 246.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from My Every Day Carry Blade... I've had my Trident for a couple of years now and it's been my every day carry knife since day one. It's tough as nails, holds an edge, is easy to open and hasn't let me down yet. I've used it for every day carry, hunting, backpacking, etc. Great product and worth every penny.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The best SOG knife I've ever gotten So I've bought about 10 other SOG knives but this one is the best ive ever recieved and the blade is still as sharp as I got it in the box after months of whittling Absolutely amazing

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best carry knife around and beautiful engraving I received this personalized engraved knife for my birthday and I haven't left the house without it. I have many, many different SOG knives, but this one has taken my heart. The tanto style blade which holds much of my SOG collection is top notch, the blade remains sharp after days of "tactical" work. I have come to rely on all of my SOG knives, but I've come to love this one.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great knife It's one of them things. I saw it and had to have it. So my wife got for me for Christmas four years ago I always have it on me

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Pocket Knife I have had this knife for a few years now. Best knife I have ever had. It is light and very ergonomic/comfortable. I keep it clipped inside my pocket daily for easy access. The quick open feature is awesome. The blade has kept it's sharpness all this time. My liberal co workers are always amazed when they see it. Because it is bad - - -! Things I would like to change 1. I would like to disable the locking mechanism. If SOG can let me know how to do it, I would. Sometimes (rarely) when I pull the knife out, the blade is set to lock by accident. This is no good if I need the knife in a self defense situation. 2. The twine cutting feature is pretty useless to me. I have a better time cutting with the blade open using the serrated edge. 3. not a change, but a note - after a few years I had to tighten the clip. Not a big deal at all, and nice to have been able to fix it myself. All in all, like I said, best knife I have ever owned.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Most durable knife ever made. Period. I was first given my Trident as a Christmas gift from my grandparents when I was fifteen-and I nearly lost my mind. The fit and finish were amazing, and it cut everything-and I mean everything without a hiccup. Through highschool and well into college, it has been my go-to knife for everything. The durability and longevity of the Trident is simply superb, as is the workmanship. Recently I traded my satin finished straight edge for my dad's black-coated partially serrated model-and again, no problems whatsoever. Incredible knife+amazing warranty=an extremely satisfied and confident cusstomer. P.S: I also own the Seal Pup Elite, and can vouch for its unwavering engineering as well!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great knife for the money. I purchased this knife out of necessity. The just I had at store I worked at pretty much required that I have a pocket knife. And the time I had another knife, that just wasn't up to the task. However, my SOG definitely is. I've had it for probably going on 8 years, and my only complaint is the blade has a little lateral wobble in it. But aside from that, it's gone camping, hiking, been to several different jobs, and has always done right by me. I would definitely recommend this knife, or anything from SOG really, to anyone who finds themselves in need of a high quality blade.
