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.

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Major dissappointment I bought this knife after losing my previous knife. Unfortunately not even a week after purchasing this knife, the pocket clip breaks, fortunately I didn't lose this knife. Second part of your in a hurry to cut a rope or other object, the safety will always slow you down.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from My every day go to Like the title says, I make sure this is on me 24/7 365. It's strong and is very comfortable in the hands. The blade holds and edge fairly well too.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Perfect EDC knife. Very easy to use knife. I got it for half the price at Academy so that's a huge plus.

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Trident Elite TF102-CP A Complete Failure I found the Trident Elite TF102-CP to be of poor quality, with no reliable function of any of the features. The machining of the blade where it meets the lock is rough and the blade is difficult to close reliably (very rough); the blade does not operate smoothly. The slot cutter does not work well and is not reliable. The built in glass breaker will not function well as it is too difficult to apply enough force as there is not enough purchase on the handle and the breaker needs a smaller point to shatter glass effectively. Other owners’ have complained of the clip breaking. This knife is of poor quality. I have a Trident TF-2 which operates very smoothly and the entire blade was polished with a perfect finish which would explain the smooth operation. I will continue to use the Trident TF-2 and the Trident Elite will be returned, given away or sent back to SOG on my dime per SOG rep. Do not buy the Trident Elite as it is a piece of junk due to poor quality and design.

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Needs a less destructive belt clip. I've had this knife over a year now and I like it. It has lost of pros, but here are the annoyances: 1. the belt clip has cut outs that eat holes in your pants wherever you clip it. So I clip it to the leather of my boot top. The belt clip should be solid metal and a bit wider to avoid wearing out you pants pocket cloth.Get rid of the SOG logo cut into the belt clip. The belt clip also interferes with the belt cutter. Move the belt clip to the other end of the knife. It will also make the knife present in a natural grip that facilitates quick opening. This will also help keep the glass breaker up and out of the pocket so it does not poke you in the leg or elsewhere! 2. the glass breaker is a good idea until you put the knife in a pocket and the thing sticks you as you walk. So it does not make a good pocket knife. 3. it does not hold an edge as long as I think it should. If it isn't sharp, the belt cutting features does really work.
