SOGAE22: SOG Aegis Mini Assisted 3" Black TiNi Plain Blade
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. 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.

Cryogenic Heat Treatment
SOG's unique cryogenic heat treatment process increases the toughness and wear resistance of our blades. Taking the knife slowly down in temperature to less than -300°F and then back to room temperature. This stress relieves the material on an atomic level and increases overall strength as well as edge retention. Knife edges stay sharp longer with significantly less micro-fracturing and edge-chipping. Its this dedication to making your knife SOG sharp that sets us apart from the rest.

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).

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

Pros: Overall Quality, Lock Type, Ease of Opening, Lock Ease of Use, Pocket Clip
Cons: None
Great Everyday Knife
This is a great knife for everyday, light use (opening boxes, campsite use, etc.). It's light, and has a slight bit of side-to-side play in the blade when opened, but still has a solid feel. The assisted opening action is super fast, easy and reliable. One note for users with "desk job hands" like myself: unlike the larger version of this one (AE02) where you can use the pad of your thumb to open the blade easily, I recommend placing your thumbnail behind the opening stud for a much easier deployment. The bonus feature of this knife is that it's ambidextrous - opening with your right or left hand is facilitated by the dual sided thumb stud.

So Light!
Very good EDC Knife Super Light yet feels solid Smooth assisted opening action Very good locking mechanism (not flimsy) Blade could be sharper out of the box, but nothing a little sharpening wont fix Don't torque the tip, it feels like it will break (It's not meant for this kind of action)
