SOGAE01: AE01 Aegis
Aegis (ee-jis), which in Greek means shield or protection, is also the code name for the world's premier integrated air defense system and the sea-based element of the United States Ballistic Missile Defense System.

The comprehensive Aegis line of premier folders is fully integrated with top end systems. Start to open the knife, and let Aegis finish the action with a bang, using one of the surest assisted technologies (S.A.T.) out there! SOG's trademark bayonet reversible clip, built in safety with red/ready to go, and checkered DigiGrip handles all contribute to make Aegis a platform for today's changing world. Cover your back with Aegis outdoor or tactical blades.

Pros: Blade Sharpness, None
Cons: Lock Ease of Use, Overall Quality
You get what you pay for...
About what you would expect for a $45 knife. Based on my SOG Spec Elite, I thought it would be higher quality with tighter manufacturing tolerances. The lock release button barely protrudes above the handle surface and the blade wobbles a bit within the handle when opened (and locked). I'll keep my Spec Elite as an EDC and drop this one in the tackle box... I'm glad I bought it at a reduced price or I would send it back. Not a bad knife but you get what you pay for. On a positive note, Knife Center ALWAYS provides first rate service. I will buy from them again.

Cons: Pocket Clip, None
SOG Aegis
Great, good looking knife. Although may be a bit large depending on the knife you are looking for, may want the smaller version of the Aegis.

Cons: None
Ergonomic Handle
This is simply the best medium/large assisted opening knife I've yet discovered in my quest for the perfect EDC/defensive folder. It's lightweight (3.1 oz), has adequate blade length (3.5") and the handle ergonomics are a vast improvement over the Flash II. The handle dispenses with the Flash's distinct finger grooves and boasts a slightly larger profile making it better for medium/large hands. Lastly, the Aegis boasts a full flat ground plain edge blade in all its clip point incarnations.
