SOG describes this item as follows:

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.

Our comprehensive Aegis line of premier folders is fully integrated with top end systems. Take the modified arc actuated piston locks that enable and support several blade configurations. 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! Our trademark bayonet reversible clip, built in safety with red/ready to go, checkered DigiGrip™ handles, and tacky rubber inserts all contribute to make Aegis a platform for today's changing world. Cover your back with Aegis outdoor or tactical blades.

SOG Assisted Technology™
The Arc-Lock just might be the perfect lock. Why? It is totally ambidextrous and has all of the attributes knife designers relentlessly search for, but rarely find.

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).

We warn you... this blade action is addictive! Play with it once, and you'll be opening it again and again!

had mine for 3 years
I have had my Aegis Tanto for almost 3 years. I carry it everyday. I was skeptical about the nonmetallic handle and the assisted opening at first but they have both held up for years. It is very light. It does not way down my pocket and since I live in the desert I frequently just clip it inside the waistband of my shorts. The clip is on the very end of the handle so you can sink it deep in your pocket with only the black clip showing. Great for me because I'm a teacher and I must be discreet. The assisted opening works just as well today as when I bought it. You do need a little allen wrench to adjust it to your liking but a half twist tightened up the wobble and made it tight as can be while being lightning fast to deploy. It came sharp and touches up easily. Seems to be hard steel so it holds an edge for quite a while. I have used it to open boxes, cut cord, and even cut up baby back ribs. Only minor complaint was that if you looked at both sides the grind where it transitions to the point were a tiny bit off. They did not match up 100 % very minor and does not effect edge or usage. Just a tad annoying for the money. I would buy again. Every other knife I own is a Coldsteel. But I love this SOG

Perfect edc
I use this knife daily as my edc. I just sharpened it for the first time in 6 months. The blade retention is great, one of the best out of my collection of folders. It is also very lite and easy to carry. I was a bit skeptical at first to have a knife with an all plastic handle with no metal in the liners but I gave it a shot and am very glad I did. Sog is a great producer of knives and I think they are the best as far as multi tools. I'm sure all who purchase this knife will be more than satisfied.

Since my wife liked her Twitch II
I usually go for Spyders, but since I misplaced mine I thought I'd try something different in the hope I'd find my old knife and not have duplicates. So far the choice I've made has been a good one even though I still prefer my Spyder, but I'm biased. The Aegis is a really good knife it opens quick, stays locked, has a nice safety feature to keep clothes and the curious safe, and is nice and sharp. It cut through a cotton t-shirt no problem. I look forward to using it in the upcoming months and am pretty sure the knife will hold up nicely.
