SOG Aegis Drop Point Pocket Knife (Satin Plain Edge)
Aegis (pronounced "ee-jis") is a Greek word that means shield, and protection, and also evokes the military-grade engineering behind the United States' Ballistic Missile Defense System, its true namesake. The Aegis line of folding knives features the highest quality AUS-8 steel, as well as SOG's own specialized assisted-opening technology for a supremely lightweight and rough-riding everyday knife that will last a lifetime. With an integrated bayonet-style reversible clip, the Aegis can be stashed just about anywhere, and its safety locking system and Zytel handle combine to create a truly amazing all-weather knife for the modern working professional. For a true defender you can trust to the grave and back, you just can't do much better than a SOG.
