I've been waiting to get my hands on a few new SOG knives and finally got the chance to pick up a SOG Trident folder today at Brigade Quartermasters. Very nice knife. Lightweight, comfortable to hold and very sharp. Out of the box there was a bit of blade wobble in the open and locked position, but tweeking the pivot screw and the top handle screw fixed it up nicely. I didn't see the tiger-striped versions so the one I bought was satin finished in plain edge, but I really like the Trident over the Flash. The handle's shape makes it feel much better and secure in the hand. Opens pretty quick too. I'm not sure where this folder is made...(USA? )..(Taiwan?)....but I like it. If I could change one thing on this folder, it would be to add dual steel liners over the pivot and lock area or offer a version with aluminum handles.
