The SOG Trident uses SOG's SOGll-proven means of delivering a knife blade to the open position with the SOG Assisted Technology. Now using SOG's patent pending Arc-Actuator, the Trident locks stronger and releases easier. There is also a built-in safety to lock the blade closed. What also makes the Trident so unique is the patent pending Groove in the handle to cut paracord, fishing line, etc. without having to open the blade. The handle also includes a Digi-Grip variable pattern for coarser grip in areas that require it. SOG's bayonet style clip is easily switched for right and left hand carry or removed for pouch storage.
