I carry two SOG Tridents. My original Trident had the tip broken off due to stupidity of the idiot using it (me). I ground it into a faux tanto blade and shoved it in my off hand pocket. I stuck a new Trident in my right pocket. I've had the original one for about 4 years and the new one for about 2. Prior to the Trident, I carried a Flash II. It was tough and took a bit of a shock (cutting a fridge cord that was still plugged in). All it did to the blade/knife was burn the coating off the blade. My firefighter cousin carries that knife every shift at work now. So yes, SOGs are pretty handy in my book.

Cool, thanks all, I'll look for one, if anywhere around me has them.

Same here, I only buy US made knives and guns. I'm also carrying a kershaw, mine is a stainless chive.
EDIT: It's not that you can't get a quality foreign made knife, but I can't stand not supporting the men and women here in the US.

I have a SOG multi tool, it is US made and a good knife/tool. I only buy US made as well. Also I am not a fan of serrated edge knives, I like a nice clean blade that I can sharpen to a razor.

The trident is a great knife in my opinion. It's light sharp and a good length. The locking switch and the pocket clip are my dislikes. The lock is on the bottom... There's been times I've needed it quick and it would have screwed me over trying to unlock it. Also it takes some getting use to pulling it out of jean pockets. I still however carry it regularly and I'm very satisfied with the quality.

I guess I'm in the minority here, but SOG's reputation is that their materials and quality control are marginal. The blade in this knife is AUS8, which is serviceable but not great (although the type of steel is not definitely determinative of how well a knife will perform -- gotta have good heat treating also). Is it better than the $9.00 folder you can buy in the plastic and cardboard hanger at Wally World, but not a first rate knife. I would say check out the RAT 1 folding knife -- also AUS 8, but stronger construction and about half the price.

I had a couple of SOG's in my collection years ago, but sold them off as I wasn't satisfied with their performance.

I carry a SOG Twitch Tanto XL and I love it. It's great. Better than my Spyderco Endura 4 or Kershaw.

Not saying its recommended, but on both of my tridents and my flash, I super glued the locking switch in the unlocked position. In 10 years or so, I've never had an issue with the knives open when they weren't supposed to. Once a year I reapply a bit of super glue and I am good to go.

I had that same exact knife! I miss it so much had it taken away from me on my way back from Afghanistan. Apparently we weren't allowed to bring back spring loaded knives I'm envious of u brother
