I have heard a few times in the last week or so that the SOG Aegis is discontinued. Wanted to see if this is accurate and to share some thoughts. I really like many things about the Aegis, blade shape, ergos, speed, even the pocket clip. Having said all that this knife is okay but could be great. It's theoretically a good design but needs: a real arc lock instead of the piston lock (one of the worst locks I've ever encountered, I've never held one that didn't have up and down play). It also needs a more solid handle material cold steel has more than proven that an all g10 handle is very strong and can be done for a reasonable price. Lastly it needs a much lower price point. These changes would make this an amazing knife. My suggestion would be sure discontinue the Aegis then come back with the Aegis 2 which can be what the first one should have been anyway. Please don't take this the wrong way I actually really like the Aegis I like it but want to love it.
