The SOG Trident uses the well-proven means of delivering a knife blade to the open position with S.A.T. (SOG Assisted Technology™) Now using their 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.
Also making the Trident 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. The bayonet style clip is easily switched for right or left hand carry or removed for pouch storage.
