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.

  • Weight: 3.1 oz.
  • Edge: Half Serrated

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!

Update on Aegis 6 years later.
3 more years and still carrying everyday. I have had my knife for over 6 years. I have carried it almost every day. The action is still crisp. You do need to clean the lint out every few weeks. Hot soapy water and a quick dry in the sun +WD-40 works great. The handles have smoothed out to a shine from constant carry. Still have the grooves and all original rubber inlays. You do have to sharpen occasionally. I have been to a football party where I threw it repeatedly at a fence. Did not break. Inbided in libations and I stuck it in a tree and lost it for a week. Still trucking. Rode hard I'm saying. Probably replace this year but with the same thing. Probably get the straight edge, easier to sharpen. I only adjusted the wobble tension once when new. Still holds.
