So the wife let me get a new knife with it being christmas and what not so today I finally made up my mind and picked up a SOG Trident Tanto from Dicks for $59. About a year ago I almost bought this knife but went with the desert cruiser from crkt. Let's just say that this SOG blows this knife out of the water. First off it is a lot lighter and for edc that makes a big difference to me. Assisted opening is nice for one handed operation. So far great knife. Very impressed with SOG.
