Received the knife today. Has a very nice feel and balance. Very easy and positive opening. Overall, a solid design. As with other reviewers, the closing of the knife is stiff. Hopefully, this will get easier as the knife is used. I replaced a competitors knife with this knife. I know the SOG is an upgrade but, I did like how easy my old knife was to open and close with one hand. One disappointment on the SOG is when I went to reverse the pocket clip, the countersink on the opposite side of the knife is not deep enough to allow the threads on the screw to engage and secure the clip. It is a stupid little thing but, SOG is the one who says the pocket clip is reversible. Overall, I like the knife and look forward to getting years of service with it.
Easy to hold and use. Nice features such as the safety and line cutter.
An excellent knife-solid, sharp, easy to open quickly, a bit hard to close back (just pushing the button). All in all – VERY GOOD for the price (excellent engraving too). THX SOG!
I got this for my husband for Christmas and he loved it! Hasn’t had one complain on it.
Have had two Trident Elites, this one for 3 months and the other for 3 years. The new one is my ETC and the other is in a semi go bag. I like the features with glass breaker, line cutter etc. The grip at first feels a bit rough but you will not slip in wet or muddy conditions. The blade comes with a very sharp edge to begin with and I made it better. Very easy to maintain edge. When I first got the latest one it seemed a bit still opening and closing. I spoke with SOG (very pleasant and helpful) and they had me to a bit of break in repititions of opening and closing which seemed to do the trick. Very pleased with this knife.
