This week SOG continues to show us they are back with a vengeance with their reimagined Trident, Spartan Blades impresses us with their new collabs with KA-BAR, and some new “glowy” Spyderco classics light things up. That and more after the jump.

SOG Trident AT D2 Assisted Openers

SOG’s brand reinvigoration continues with the new Trident AT, an assisted-opener built around their capable XR crossbar lock. Even with its newly refined shape and stronger lock, this remains one of our favorite tactical rescue knives with two blade shapes to choose from and a cutout in the handle that lets you use the closed knife as a seatbelt cutter. It even has a subtly integrated glass-breaker at the front of the handles. It doesn’t get in the way at all and it is right there when you need it!

Designed by the Spartan crew and built by KA-BAR in their Olean, NY facility, these knives have the pedigree and rock-solid performance you would expect.
