SOG produces some of the world’s finest specialty tools, including but certainly not limited to, my Trident. This bad boy is light, tight, and ready for a fight no matter what situation you are in. I don’t care if you’re an avid camper, survivalist, or if you really do kick down doors and shoot bad guys… this knife will do you no wrong.
Here is what SOG had to say about the knife… then I’ll tell you what I think.
“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.”
Lot’s of mumbo jumbo sounding language right? Wrong. This is actually quite an accurate description of what the knife has to offer. I will admit that the marketing guy in charge of this product description should be getting paid a pretty penny. It was short, sweet, and accurate. Loved it.
Having messed with this bad boy for quite some time now I would love to speak on my experience, especially as it relates to the points made by that marketing guy.
2 – The Arc-Actuator™ is pretty awesome. I will admit that at first it was terribly difficult to open the knife for a while. Release the lock, push the little thumb release and fire away. Well it sucked for about the first thousand times; but only because it was super tough. Don’t get me wrong, I appreciated (and continue to appreciate) the rigidity of the mechanism.
