I own three versions of the Trident: a digicamo/TiNi tanto point, an all-black tanto point, and my most-used all-black clip-point. I love the action of the assisted opening and the ergonomics, but my main reason for choosing the Trident over its competition is the safety.
I work in a school setting and feel confident that should a student manage to misappropriate my SOG, the safety would prevent him from opening it before I could retrieve it. Another benefit for carry at work is the black version blends well with black dress pants and the camo version works fairly well with khakis.

One note: the AUS8 blade has held up well for the 2 years I've carried my main knife, but the black finish did not. One weekend I had to stand outside in a monsoon for about 16 hours, and it began to rust. I cleaned it with Flitz, but the black came off, leaving naked stainless to show underneath.

Reviewing: SOG Trident in digicamo w/black part serrated TiNi blade.

Overall, I am very pleased with this knife. The knife comes sharp out of the box and is very thin, light, and attractive/stylish. The digi-camo pattern is a nice change from the usual black which is a common standard for tactical/edc folders.

Arc-lock actuator works smoother on this Trident model than on the Flash 2 which I also reviewed.

Assisted open is quite fast and fun way to pass time :)

Materials wise, the handle is basically a textured plastic or "Zytel" to be fancy, but it is light and that is what this knife is going for, a VERY thin, VERY light tactical folder which I believe can be used for EDC every day carry, cutting anything from rope to boxes, but also that blade is long and threatening enough to be used as a tactical defense blade. The tip of the blade is a clip point and quit thin and sharp, so piercing is no issue if you're into that kinda stuff..

Lastly, the slot for cutting twine/rope is best for very thin line but can come in handy, although I would rather just flick open the nice blade and cut normally.

Overall, I would give this SOG trident an 8/10 and recommend you pick it up in a cool color option despite them being half serrated (tiger stripe blade, digi camo, desert camo)

Paul, you must be ignorant if you cannot write a proper review. You must have either scored a 23 on the ASVAB or just cannot properly articluate thoughts into words.I would have appreciated an actual, intelligible, review of the knife; oh sorry, "plastic" piece of crap.

sog trident had been in my edc rotation for around a year now, and i love it. its a great lightweight tactical around the same quality as a spyderco endura. i glued the safety off as i have no need for it, and added a lanyard. the pocket clip gets caught on the lip of my jeans pocket, but the lanyard makes for a fast, easy draw. the arc accuator wiggles a bit, but the blade locks up solid. i reccomend this knife for a mid grade self defence or light cutting tool.

I bought the tanto or drop-point edge.. far more versatile and rugged I've had mine a few months and I use it on a daily basis is my tinkering and such.I found myself using this knife more and more as time went on because of my love for the blade,which I recommend the tanto, great for prying(if needed)it doesn't leave you with the fear of the tip breaking off.overall I give it a 9/10 wit hthe tanto blade
