Description
SOGAE21: Aegis Mini Assisted 3" Plain Blade
SOG
 
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!

SOG Aegis a favorite
I actually have both the standard size and the mini Aegis. Both are excellent knives but the mini is my favorite every-day carry knife. It fits perfectly in my pocket and opens smoothly and quickly. I appreciate the fact that the Aegis locks closed so there is no chance of opening in my pocket. The blade is easy to sharpen and holds an edge.

My EDC folder
I am a big fan of SOG knives. I had the full size Aegis already and was quite happy with it. It is a large package, though, so I use a belt pouch for it. When the mini came out, I thought maybe here is the true pocket knife version. I removed the clip, rounded off the squarish corners, and now it goes in my pocket each morning, The blade finish is very nice, and the flat ground blade is easy to keep hair shaving sharp. The assisted opening is very smooth and opens with that sound that tells you everything was put together perfectly!
