SOG’s New Brand Direction Shines Through In Release Of Flash AT, Aegis AT and Trident AT

Lynnwood, WA – As Studies and Observations Group (SOG) undergoes an in-depth brand transformation in 2020 it introduces new knives and multi-tools, each relentlessly designed to meet or exceed the specific demands of end-users.

Leading off the new introductions are total redesigns of three favorite SOG assisted-opening folding knives:

Flash AT, Aegis AT and Trident AT. Each feature SOG’s newly developed Assisted Technology XR locking mechanism (AT-XR Lock), are fully ambidextrous and use titanium nitride coated cryogenically heat-treated D2 stainless steel. The newest versions of these best-selling knives deliver real-world solutions for three clearly defined segments of SOG users: Flash AT for daily carry, Aegis AT for outdoor users and Trident AT for professionals.

Flash AT

“Previous versions of these three knives have been among the most popular in the SOG lineup for about a decade,” said Jonathan Wegner, Vice President of Brand, who leads the new design direction and oversees product strategy at SOG. “Because they clearly represent each of our three user groups, they were the most obvious to kick off our entirely new product and brand approach.”

SOG’s brand transformation emanates throughout the 2020 collection of knives and tools. Each of SOG’s new offerings are the culmination of insights and feedback provided by SOG’s cadre of subject matter experts, made up of professional, outdoor and everyday carry specialists. SOG applies a process of study, observe, understand, apply and repeat, that begins with a deep dive with users, before committing to any design solution. Coupling insights with a proven track record of design and engineering innovation, these new knives are poised to set a new standard as SOG moves forward with increasing the depth and breadth of its product line.

Trident AT

Each featuring SOG’s new and distinct visual brand language, Flash AT, Aegis AT and Trident AT utilize SOG’s incredibly strong XR locking mechanism that has consistently proven to deliver more than 1,000 pounds of lock-up strength in the new, lightning fast AT-XR Lock assisted-open mechanism, designed specifically for this new lineup. The new knives also come in a number of blade styles and various color choices in durable and ergonomic GRN handles.

MSRP for the three folders: Flash AT ($83.95), Aegis AT ($94.95) and Trident AT ($105.95). The three new models are available from Blade HQ, Knife Center and Smoky Mountain Knife Works, as well as SOG’s website.

“These three knives set the table for our 2020 line that puts us on a course to push new boundaries,” said Wegner “This is just the beginning of our pursuit to design solutions that will equip people for greater purpose.”
