Very well made knife as you would expect from Benchmade. Lightweight and very functional.

The full sized Griptilian is a robust, heavy duty work knife, capable of tackling big chores. Its size can be intimidating in urban areas, and in that case, the 2/3 size Mini Grip should be considered. The Zytel handle is strong and light and the AXIS locking mechanism is very strong and reliable. The large blade has a nice grind and its 154CM steel has good edge retention and is very tough. It is also very corrosion resistant and easy to sharpen. This is a great knife!

This Benchmade knife has to be the best knife I've ever owned. It has assisted opening, which I use now. I used to buy the full amnual folding knives, but the assist makes it much easier to open. It is perfectly legal in all states, so I would highly recommend this knife to everyone!!

I bought one of these knives for my son-in-law that was deployed to Iraq. He loved the knife because it was lightweight, easy to open with one hand, could be carried almost anywhere because of the side clip, and was extremely sharp right out of the box. He convinced me to buy one for myself. I would like to add that it also seems to be holding that sharp edge longer than any other folder that I have ever owned.
