The Trident Mini from SOG uses S.A.T. (SOG Assisted Technology) to quickly open the blade. What also makes the Trident Mini so unique is the Knife's patent pending Groove in the handle, which allows the operator to cut paracord, fishing line, etc. without having to open the blade. The handle features a Digi-Grip variable pattern for coarser grip in areas that require it , and a pocket clip is easily switched for right/left hand carry.
