MAKE & MODEL: SOG Knives Trident Elite
ITEM NO: 100-016-858
NOTES: The trident was the three-pronged spear used by neptune, so a knife of the same name should be as serious as what the roman god of the sea would carry — and it is. Its assisted opening mechanism, glass breaker, and slot cutter give you peace of mind by having an array of safety features. The rubber inserts on a nylon handle will ensure a firm grip while wielding the 3.7" blade. At 8.7" overall length, it’s one serious knife for the serious EDC shopper.

MAKE & MODEL: Gerber Impromptu Tactical Pen
ITEM NO: 385-000-041
