Aegis, pronounced ee-jiss is Greek meaning, shield/protection. The SOG AEGIS Tanto lives exactly up to its name with a quality design and beautiful finish, capable of handling even the most difficult of tasks. This is honestly one of the toughest and most badass knives I have used to date and recommend this to anyone looking for a really good quality folder at an affordable price.

Blade

The SOG AEGIS Tanto features a, you guessed it, Tanto style blade which allows the blade to have  a stronger piercing point than its competitors currently out there in the market. The blade is 3.5 Inches long making it the perfect length for not only delicate work but also more heavy duty and demanding tasks. As is it made out of super high-quality AUS-8 steel, this blade can maintain a razor sharp edge with ease, and even comes incredibly sharp out of the box. It is RC57-58 hardness meaning that this blade is barely going to chip or break from regular use.

The blade is also partially serrated as you can see, allowing it to be also used for cutting and not just slicing. This makes a perfect every day carry knife as you can use it for everything from slicing wire to cutting through small bits of wood to
even preparing food with when camping. The blade also features a finer serration on the back for smaller cutting tasks, something which a lot of its competitors fail to provide.

Handle

Sog AEGIS Tanto Camo ClipThe handle on the SOG AEGIS Tanto is incredibly comfortable and easy to hold. You are able to maintain a tight grip when holding the blade and your hand is not going to slip when placed under pressure. The handle is made out of Glass-reinforced nylon and is able to take a good beating before it starts to wear down. The blade is also an assisted opener meaning that with a push on the thumb stud the blade will open with a bang. This makes it a great knife to open with one hand and is one of the fastest assisted opening knives I have ever seen.

The knife also comes with an integrated belt clip that can be easily clipped on. Better yet, as this is quite a light knife (3.10 ounces) you will barely feel it there at your side and it isn’t going to weigh you down.

Verdict

Overall, the SOG AEGIS Tanto knife is a really solid every day carry knife. The unique sharp tanto style, along with a serrated edge is a really good combo and makes this knife extremely useful for piercing and chopping jobs especially. If you are looking for a solid folder, then I cannot recommend this enough. It truly is a great knife, however, I recommend you go get a feel for it first at your local store to make sure that it is right for as a lot of the time, what is good for someone might not be good for someone else.
