SOFIC 2014 – SOG Specialty Knives & Tools

SOG has updated the popular Trident folder with an additional model called the Trident Elite. While the original is still available, SOG answered customer requests by adding a glass breaker, introducing co-molded rubber on the handle for an enhanced grip and upgraded the spring to the SAT 2.0 flat spring technology. This new spring consists of a wound flat bar making it the fastest spring they have.


Additionally, the carry profile remains the same with the same strap cutter. The 3.7″ blade is crafted from Japanese AUS8 steel and the handle is a combo of Glass Reinforced Nylon co-molded with rubber. Offered in polished satin and TiNi finish. Finally, the glass breaker features a carbide tip.

    The grooved handle invention was stolen from an SOF operator. SOG still benefits from the inventors IP and pays zero royalties. Beware of companies claiming to support our war-fighters.

    Country of Origin? Tough to find out on their website…near as I can tell they sometimes assemble in the US but are generally vague. I can’t say it’s the case with all their knives, but it’s always strange seeing companies using US Mil and LE in their marketing and making the gear in countries that are openly hostile to the US (e.g. China).
