The SOG Specialty Knives & Tools TF7-CP Trident is a unique, versatile and fast opening folding knife that provides many different uses, while showcasing SOG’s style and quality construction. Made of AUS-8 steel with an attractive hardcase black TiNi finish, the 3.75-inch straight edge, folding blade has a tanto shape with a very strong tip that's ideal for piercing, sharpens easily and makes quick work of any task. SOG Assisted Technology (S.A.T.) works through the balance of opposing high-tension coil springs. As you initiate the opening action, the force propelling your blade open becomes greater than the force keeping it closed. The result is a blade that springs open instantly once it is engaged, seemingly on its own. The piston locking mechanism uses a movable bar that's wedged between the blade tang and knife handle to lock the blade in place while in the open position. The ergonomically contoured and well-balanced handle has a black finish and is made of a high strength, abrasion and impact resistant glass-reinforced nylon that will fit comfortably in your hand. The Digi-Grip variable pattern provides a secure, no-slip grip and the base of the handle sports a groove that allows the user to cut paracord, fishing line and other cord-sized objects without having to open the blade. The reversible belt clip provides a low and discrete carry for right and left handed users or can be removed for pouch storage. The TF7-CP has a closed length of 4.75-inches, overall length of 8.5-inches, blade thickness of 0.13-inches and weighs 3.6-ounces. The SOG TF7-CP Trident Knife comes with a limited lifetime warranty. Each SOG product is created with the help of company founder and chief engineer, Spencer Frazer. Known for their uncompromising style and performance, these knives and tools showcase innovation, dependability and a unique, futuristic style that has garnered awards and recognition worldwide.
Blending elements from the Bowie, Tomcat, SEAL Pup, and Flash Series knives, SOG Specialty Knives and Tools has created a new breed of folding knife: the TF-7 Trident knife with straight blade, tanto edge, and black TiNi coating. Designed for use by Navy SEALs, the TF-7 features SOG's grooved handle, which allows you to cut heavy cord and cable without having to open the specially designed blade. The TF-7's blade is easy to open and features Arc-Actuator technology, which helps the blade lock more strongly and release more easily.

- A straight blade with tanto edge and black TiNi coating
- The ability to cut paracord, fishing line, and more without having to open the blade

Fast, safe, single-handed opening makes SOG Trident Series knives incredibly easy to handle in a wide variety of situations. When you go to unfold the TF-7's blade, SOG's patented S.A.T. (SOG Assisted Technology) takes over. High-tension coil springs propel the blade open, so you can easily access it with just one hand.
S.A.T. knives offer security and peace of mind with their locking mechanisms that are stronger, more reliable, and easier to access than other knives'. For Trident Series knives, this means the blade is held in place with a reliable piston lock that can be quickly released with a sliding button. An additional safety lock offers extra security when the blade is closed, and for easy reference, the lock switch shows red when the knife is ready to be opened.
Cryogenic Heat Treatment and TiNi Coating Guarantee a Sharp, Durable Blade
The TF-7 offers a full, 3.75-inch, AUS8 stainless steel blade that has undergone SOG's patented Cryogenic Heat Treatment process, which ensures that this blade will stay sharp over the long haul. This intensive process takes more than 48 hours and involves slowly reducing the blade's temperature to less than -300 degrees Fahrenheit, then slowly heating the blade to room temperature. The stress created by this process strengthens the steel on an atomic level and increases the blade's overall durability and edge retention.
In addition to having undergone the Cryogenic Heat Treatment Process, this knife is coated in proprietary titanium nitride (TiNi), of the toughest coatings that can be applied to steel. TiNi boasts extreme hardness, is exceptionally scratch and peel resistant, helps increase steel's longevity, and ensures low reflectivity.
Ergonomic, Lightweight Design Ensures Comfortable Use
Even if your blade is sharp, it's hard to make precise cuts if your knife doesn't fit comfortably in your hand. That's why this knife's handle is ergonomically contoured. Crafted from tough, glass-reinforced Zytel, the handle is well-balanced and features SOG's unique Digi-Grip texturing, a feature that gives you gripping power where you need it most. Additionally, the grooved handle allows you to cut heavy cord and cable without having to open the blade.
At just 3.6 ounces, this folding knife is lightweight and easy to carry. A reversible, bayonet-mounted clip extends from the back of the handle, allowing the knife to sit low in your pocket for the most discreet carry possible. The removable clip is easily switched for right/left hand-carry.
This knife is backed by a lifetime warranty that protects against defects in manufacturing and materials.
