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.

    Trident - Clam Pack is rated 4.7 out of 5 by 291.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Durable Adventure/Everyday carry knife I purchased this knife 4 years ago, and over that time it has done nearly everything possible. From backpacking in the New Mexico Sangre de Cristo Mountains, canoeing in the Boundary Waters, whitewater rafting on the New River, mountain biking, kayaking, being used as a self-defense weapon, you name it, this knife has been absolutely excellent. It can handle most heavy work the backcountry requires such as splitting small firewood, along with training to fight by stabbing or slashing a heavy bag. In addition, it performs more delicate operations like acting as a first aid scalpel for blisters and splinters, or just cutting open a letter. This knife can do it all. I highly recommend this knife for someone whom craves adventure and knows how to care for a good blade.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Don't understand bad reviews I love this knife. I carried everyday. And the locks on mine are outstanding. I really can't see how somebody can downplay this knife. But I will save it I give it a five- star. I've had this knife for 2 years now, and it looks like it hadn't had any use.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from excellent knife for the past 13+ years. I have had this knife for over 13 years now and has been used for a little bit of everything. From cleaning wild game mostly deer and trout to working in my plant cutting wire or anything else I may need to do. It will be getting sent back to the factory to have the springs replaced and the serrated edge sharpened. Other then that I have had no problems with it. Thanks guys for making such an awesome knife.

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Don’t buy it Poorly made and very dull. If you want to waste your money, be my guest.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great sailing/kayaking knife Bought this knife three years ago and it hasn’t let me down. Take this out sailing, kayaking and whenever I’m on the water. Great buy!

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Light, fast opener, and easy one-hand operation! I got a standard Black coated, half serrated knife over a year ago, and it's held up to everything I throw at it. It's relatively easy to sharpen to a razor's edge, and it's my EDC. No coating issues, and if you keep the lent off the action and a little oil on it, it's 100% reliable!

    Rated 2 out of 5 by from bad lock, pocket clip, and ao mechanism i tried to fix up this knife for a buddy of mine who had it for two years. he is not a knife abuser, honestly i dont think he really used it much. anyway, the safety lock stinks, its on the middle of the knife, and is pops in and out as it pleases. the clip has some weird wraparound design and you cant bend it back into shape. lastly, the ao mechanism stunk. i didnt know it was an ao until he told me. it had absolutely no power to it whatsoever. ps its overpriced

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Terrible coating Did not like this knife. I bought it about a month ago 9/1/17 and it started rusting immediately. The blade dulled way to easy and never stayed sharp. Would not buy this knife again
