The SOG Trident Mini uses the well-proven means of delivering a knife blade to the open position with S.A.T. (SOG Assisted Technology). Now using SOG’s patent pending Arc-Actuator, the Trident Mini locks stronger and releases easier. There is also a built-in safety to lock the blade closed.
What also makes the Trident Mini 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 DigiGrip variable pattern for coarser grip in areas that require it. The bayonet style clip is easily switched for right/left hand carry or removed for pouch storage.
Thanks to S.A.T. (SOG Assisted Technology) the blade is propelled open once the operator has initiated the one-handed opening action. S.A.T. works through the balance of opposing high-tension coil springs. As one opens the blade the force to propel the knife open becomes greater than the closing force and the blade will open on its own. S.A.T. works so well that right-handers can use their left hand equally well to open a folding knife (of course this works oppositely for lefties).
We warn you: This blade action is addictive! Play with it once, and you'll be opening it again and again…
SOG's unique cryogenic heat treatment process increases the toughness and wear resistance of their blades. The knife is taken slowly down in temperature to less than -184°C and then back to room temperature. This stress relieves the material on an atomic level and increases overall strength as well as edge retention. Knife edges stay sharp longer with significantly less micro-fracturing and edge-chipping.
This knife was tested and recommended by the National Tactical Officer’s Association and was selected for the North American Fishing Club’s Field Tested Seal of Approval.
