The SOG Aegis is a premier folder that's fully integrated with top end systems. (Aegis is also the greek code name for the world's premier integrated air defense system and the sea-based element of the U.S. Ballistic Missile Defense System.) This SOG's satin-finish blade is AUS 8 steel with an HRC of 57-58. Handles are Zytel. Start to open the knife, and let Aegis complete the action using SOG's Assisted Technology. SOG's trademark bayonet reversible clip, built-in safety with red/ready to go, checkered DigiGrip™ handles and tacky rubber inserts all combine to make Aegis an elite folder for today and tomorrow.
SOG's unique cryogenic heat treatment process increases the toughness and wear resistance of its blades. By taking the knife slowly down to -300° F and then back to room temperature, the material is stress-relieved on an atomic level to increase overall strength and edge retention. Manufacturer's lifetime warranty. Blade length: 3.5''. Overall length: 8.25''. Weight: 3.1 oz.

SOG Assisted Technology™ (S.A.T.) provides easy one-handed opening action that's so easy, it's addictive! SOG utilizes opposing high-tension coil springs to propel the blade open once someone starts the blade out. This opening action is so easy you can do it equally well with your less dominant hand, an option that comes in handy when in the middle of a tough task.
