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.

Easy to carry everyday knifeI have been using the Aegis Mini for about a year, it is my everyday carry knife. I like the combo blade, small sized, and easy to operate opening. I also appreciate the safety, just in case I leave it where my children could grab it. The only maintenance I have had to do in a year (it is due for a sharpening....) is to tighten the screw that holds the pocket clip. It became loose, but was very easy to fix.
The knife is lightweight, and I love the low profile carry clip that keeps it securely in my pocket.
I plan on buying a larger knife soon to replace it as my everyday carry, but it will be my reliable back up knife.

The perfect EDCHave had the mini Aegis for about a year. The perfect EDC knife. Sharp as a razor, maintains edge, and is perfect clipped inside front pocket. Opens in a flash. Get one. You won't be disappointed.
