SOG's trademarked bayonet clip allows the knife to ride securely and unobtrusively in your pocket when not in use
High-tension coil springs open the blade fully for quick, one-handed access.
Cryogenic Heat Treatment for a Sharp, Dependable Blade
SOG's unique cryogenic heat treatment process increases the toughness and wear resistance of the blade. The blade's temperature is slowly taken down to less than -300 degrees Fahrenheit and then slowly brought back up to room temperature. This stress relieves the material on an atomic level and increases overall strength and edge retention. This means the knife edge stays sharp longer with significantly less micro-fracturing and edge-chipping.
SOG Assisted Technology Increases Speed, Safety, and Usability
When you start to open the AE-04's blade, SOG's patented S.A.T (SOG Assisted Technology) takes over and high-tension coil springs propel the blade the rest of the way open. This means fast, easy, one-handed access to the AE-04's blade whenever you need it.
Additionally, the unique design of S.A.T. offers security and peace of mind by incorporating locking mechanisms that are stronger, more reliable, and easier to access than other mechanisms. For Aegis Series knives, this means a safety on the side of the handle that delivers extra protection against accidental openings. When the safety is protecting you, its button shows green to confirm that you're ready to slip the knife in your pocket. When you switch the safety off, this button turns red to signal that your blade is ready for deployment.
Ergonomic, Slip-Free Grip Ensures Accurate Handling
This Aegis knife is designed to sit comfortably in either hand, and it's well-balanced for a natural feel that inspires confident cuts. SOG's trademarked, checkered DigiGrip handle provides a sure grip for safe, accurate positioning, while tacky rubber inserts in the handle offer extra anti-slip security. Plus this handle is crafted from tough, glass-reinforced Zytel--a compound that's lightweight, abrasion resistant, and impact resistant.
The knife weighs in at just 3.1 ounces, and it includes SOG's trademarked bayonet clip, which allows the folded knife to ride securely and unobtrusively in your pocket when not in use. This clip is reversible, which means it can be positioned on whichever side of the knife is most convenient for you.
The SOG AE-04 Aegis Folding Knife is backed by a lifetime warranty that protects against defects in manufacturing and materials.
