Benchmade Mini Griptilian Knives
slice n dice
The Benchmade Griptillian is a excellent knife for what it is. 154 Cm steel, plane edge or combo edge options. The axis lock is smooth and if well oiled, it can be opened with a flick of the thumb stud. Ive cut through hundreds of cardboard boxes and packaging materials in a days work, touched up the blade after and preformed flawlessly the next day. I like the texture of the handles and how it grips my hand like good handshake. The handles are lined in steel then the plastic grips are attached to them for a two part handle. My knife did not come with a low profile deep carry clip but that's not really a big deal. The serrations for the combo edge are insanely sharp and cut through zip ties and ripe with ease.

First of all, this is the first review that I have written for any product. Now then, this is the highest quality knife that I have ever owned. Everything about this knife just feels right. The action is super smooth, and opens with just the slightest flick of the wrist. The blade comes hair shaving sharp, however I cant tell you how well it takes an edge since I haven't needed to sharpen it yet. The handle fits very nicely in your hand even though it is a smaller knife. The only complaint that I have is that the carrying clip is backwards from what I am used to. Bottom line, this is a great knife for only 100 dollars that will last you a life time if you take just a little bit of care.

Great product for the price.
For the price this is the best knife I have ever owned. I have owned other benchmade products that I have paid twice as much for and this one performs just as well. Good steel that holds a great edge and is still easy to sharpen. The website is wrong about the steel. It is 154cm, this is much better than 440 stainless.

Great knife for the money. Just as good as the other Benchmade products, at a more reasonable price. I've had this knife for a while now and it holds sharp edge during any type of use. It has a very smooth action, and is sized just right.
