Designed to tackle any emergency situation, the Trident Elite is ready to go at a moment's notice with its assisted opening mechanism, slot cutter, and glass breaker.
The Trident Elite features SOG's patented Assisted Technology for quick one-handed opening. The slot cutter built into the handle can cut thin rope, belts, or webbing without opening the blade. The front of the handle has a built-in glass breaker for any situation. The Trident Elite comes with a 3.7-inch blade made of reliable AUS-8 stainless steel and a durable glass-reinforced nylon handle with textured rubber inserts to improve grip.

works through the balance of opposing high-tension coil springs. As you initiate the opening action, the force propelling your blade open becomes greater than the force keeping it closed. The result is a blade that springs open instantly once it is engaged, seemingly on its own.
The Piston lock,
or bolt-action lock, are very strong and easy to use. They employ a movable bar wedged between blade tang and knife handle to lock the blade. When pulled back against the spring tension, the tang is released.
is short for Titanium Nitride. By far the best coating that can be applied to steel, it is commonly used for black finishes and to increase durability. The TiNi finish is known to be both extremely scratch and peel resistant, and is applied to steel through a unique process of plasma deposition performed in a complete air-sealed vacuum.
Glass Reinforced Nylon (GRN)
is a high-strength, abrasion, and impact resistant thermoplastic polyamide formulation of the family more commonly known as nylon, often with varying degrees of fiberglass (from 13% to 60%), added for extra stiffness. GRN also offers chemical resistance to common chemicals, such as motor oil, transmission fluid, and methanol. GRN allows little thermal expansion.
is a great all-around format and one of the most popular, used on most bowie knives. The blade shape uses a concave or straight cutout toward the tip.
Partially Serrated blades
offer the advantages of both straight and serrated edges in one knife blade. A partially serrated edge is a good compromise when the blade will be used for general purposes.
AUS-8 and AUS-6
are high-grade chromium Japanese steels that boast a good balance of toughness and strength, edge holding ability, corrosion resistance, and cost. Typical Rockwell hardness is 56-58
