SOG’s taking the Active Junky team places with powerful knife and tool options including this rugged, open-assisted model. At 2.0oz and 4.1” closed, Aegis (meaning “shield” or “protection” in Greek) was tough to beat with the durable, fast-cutting 3” TiNi blade. The brand’s commitment to functional simplicity came through in mixed cutting chores on Chile’s wind-pounded Pacific Coast.
Test Quote: “Aegis Mini fits both large and small hands. The grip is stable enough to allow precise cutting – almost like scissors – while the overall size fits well in a pants pocket.”
Best For: Adventure travel where cutting, slicing and fine point work are all possible
