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.
Aegis means "shield" or "protection" in Greek, and it is also the code name for both the world's premier integrated air defense system and the sea-based element of the United States Ballistic Missile Defense System. Thanks to SOG's thoughtful design features, this versatile knife lives up to its illustrious name. The knife opens to a full length of 8.25 inches, and its 3.5-inch half-serrated Tanto blade is crafted from AUS-8 stainless steel for improved strength and edge retention. You get the best of both straight and serrated blades with this design, and the Tanto shape of the blade offers an extra strong tip, while the black TiNi finish on this blade offers improved durability along with anti-reflective good looks.
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.

The purpose of this review is to point out some changes to the knife I received from Amazon vs. what's in the current pictures.
- The lanyard hole is now missing on the pocket clip (pic 1)
- The clip is 'insanely' tight. This knife will *never* fall out of your pocket if clipped in. More likely than not you'll end up damaging your pocket fabric if you always carry the knife in the same place.
- The clip is now rounded, not square (pic 2)
- There is a small amount of the rounded heel of the blade which blocks a bit of the lower case gimping (pic 3)
- And just for the sake of comparison, I've included a picture of the Aegis next to a Micron 2.0 for EDC evaluation.
Bottom line - This knife is so light that it's easy to forget it's in your pocket, but strong enough to be a dependable and attractive EDC.
After additional research into comparable Tanto folders I came across the CRKT M16-14ZLEK:
I purchased the CRKT to compare the knives side-by-side. 2 additional photos have been added to this review.
- Stronger handle (metal inside, nylon outside)
- Absolutely zero blade play in any direction (SOG Aegis has some side-to-side wiggle when locked)
- Seat belt cutter
- Glass breaker
- 4-position belt clip
- Longer handle
- The CRKT is currently $14.47 less expensive than the SOG
- Heavier 5.5 oz. (SOG is 3.1 oz.Read more ›
Well, "upgrade" turned out to be the wrong word. Right out of the box the Aegis was dull as a butter knife... seriously, I'm not exaggerating, I can drag it across my palm without a single nick. The glass-reinforced, nylon handle is probably durable enough, but it looks and feels chintzy and doesn't make for a very comfortable grip. The fitting between the blade and handle is off somehow as well, I can feel and even hear excessive friction for the first half of the opening, which really hinders the assisted opening function. It almost seems like the blade is winning a small, personal victory every time it struggles itself open and slowly locks in place. To top it off, there is much more play between the blade and handle that I feel there should be in a MSPR $120 knife.
So, why did I give it 3 stars instead of less? Partially it's because I really like and depend upon SOG products and it's heartbreaking to give it anything less. But really, to be fair the blade itself is good quality and can be sharpened up nicely. Also, the handle design is actually quite nice, there's just something in the construction that is lacking.Read more ›
