The Trident uses SOG's well-proven means of delivering a knife blade to the open position with S.A.T. (SOG Assisted Technology). Now using the patent pending Arc-Actuator, the Trident locks stronger and releases easier.
The Trident also features 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 or fishing line without having to open the blade.
The Trident's blade is an evolution as well. Taking key elements from previous blade shapes created a distinct hybrid of form and function. Check out Digi-Grip, this variable patterning creates a coarser grip in areas that will require it. SOG's bayonet style clip is easily switched for right/left hand carry or removed for pouch storage.
SOG Assisted Technology
SOG Assisted Technology works through the balance of opposing high-tension coil springs. As one opens the blade the force to propel the knife open becomes greater than the closing force and the blade will open on its own. The end result propels the blade out once the operator has initiated the one-handed opening action.
S.A.T. works so well that right-handers can use their left hand equally well to open a folding knife (of course this works oppositely for lefties).
