SOG Trident Tanto Folding Knife Review

This is my video review of the SOG Trident Tanto folding knife. I carry this blade almost daily since it’s so lightweight and usefull. It looks like something Rambo might carry as a backup blade, but it’s also very well thought out. Thanks for watching and please subscribe for more reviews like this!

Good review, simple, precise, and short. Nutnfancy could learn a thing or two from you

TheYankeeGI says:

Just FYI, stay away from smith and wesson blades…
They make good guns, but the knives…not so much…

I’d say stay away from the Smith & Wesson knives. They make great guns, and not so great knives unfortunately from what I’ve seen. I’d go with the Sog. I use this one a lot.

Felix Elizondo says:

The manager I work at has this exact knife he’s had it for 5 years and it’s bad ass he loves to come out to the shop and throw his knife at the wall lol and recently the tip broke but I re grind it it’s good now haha

I got it for $50 at Wal-Mart

Master Tracker says:

I removed the safety . There was no way to keep it from going in to safe mode . Nice knife but the safety mechanism SUCKS and will get you killed if one needs to get the knife into action in a hurry .
Thanks for your video .

Would you trade it in for a sog trident elite?

Photo314159 says:

Thank you! I always miss stuff I wanted to say, but I try to cover the bases.

There’s a lot of great knives for under $100. My thoughts on a “seatbelt cutter” is that any sharp knife will do it. I don’t know of many folding knives with glass breakers though. I like this knife, or a Spyderco Manix 2, or a Benchmade Griptilian or for a tad more a Benchmade Mini Onslaught. You can’t go wrong with the SOG though, or in this price point a Spyderco Tenacious. Good luck!

How much is it?

Mr. Delaparra says:

i have a question and i hope you could help me out with a answer. im looking for a folding knive with a glass breaker and seatbelt cutter, what knive do you recommend under 100 bucks. im looking to buy the one you are showing but wonder if their are other better ones for under 100

Photo314159 says:

Yep, that’s as low as I’ve seen it. My friend picked one up for the same.

Photo314159 says:

…And this has no serrations on the blade, which I prefer. 🙂

Paleobiology says:

The Schrade First Response is a pretty well-regarded knife with strap cutter and class breaker.

joey broox says:

I’ve got a SOG powerassist multitool and the blades keep coming loose, if you tighten it they don’t open,,,, will this not happen to this?

David Marino says:

I’m getting one but I dont understand the difference between this and the ageis tanto

Photo314159 says:

It varies a lot. I think m.s.r.p. is $120, but I bought it for $60 at a local sporting goods store.

Ethan O'Neill says:

The reason the blade locks is so u can use the seatbelt cutter for emergencies its not for a rope.

R4ND0M N355 says:

Tanto is the best for this knife

Voy Toy says:

I noticed (I only have 3 smith & wesson knives) they are impossible to sharpen and keep sharp, I think they use some kind of inferior steel, my cold steel, sog, benchmade and kershaw knives all stay hair splitting sharp but not matter what sharpening system I use on the s&w’s they won’t keep an edge 🙁

Stephen says:

dark knife with dark back ground. works well

Morpheus Volk says:

but I love my home land security survival knife…

Matt Mino says:

I have a question for you photo314159. I am getting a folding knife for camping and hiking and i am deciding between the SOG trident(which is my personal favorite as i have the SOG seal pup and it is my favorite knife)and two smith and wesson m&p spring assist knifes and i need your opinion on which would you choose.

Photo314159 says:

@james106810 Ooh, sorry to hear that. I hate over regulations. Here each state is different, but in Ohio there’s no regulation. However if you rob someone with it, or commit any crime, then it’s considered a weapon. Some states have a limit on maximum blade length. It’s best not to flash it around in either case if you do carry one. Thanks for the comment!

Photo314159 says:

@thegunguy2011 Sure it’s a great knife, the Elite version is even better. My only critique would be the handle, it feels like plastic. But the knife is pretty much bombproof.

Photo314159 says:

The Ageis has a different blade profile, and completely different handle shape as well as rubber inserts and to cord cutter. I prefer the Trident Tanto, but I’m sure both are good.

Matt Mino says:


Photo314159 says:

Yeah, I’ve looked at them but they all seem too heavy for thier sizes.

Photo314159 says:

This one isn’t anywhere close. More like $50-$80. Some of them get nuts though.

Isaiah y says:

The cutting thing that’s diagonal is a seat belt cutter

TheYankeeGI says:

S&W need to stick to guns… The knives are cheap…not good….

DiEGO2DaBAY says:

Dick’s sports, I paid 59.99 plus tax..

Chris Ryan says:

500$ fuck that!

danx033 says:


Photo314159 says:

Yeah, but compared to what else is out there, it really is inexpensive for what it is.

Photo314159 says:

*no cord cutter that is.

Photo314159 says:

To me it looks like something Rambo might carry as a backup blade.
