Benchmade Mini Griptilian Serrated Edge Folding Knife
This knife is the base line for Benchmade's Blue Class, which are high quality American made knives. It is an excellent hard work knife. The handle is very durable and very comfortable. The locking mechanism, called AXIS, is amazingly reliable, even when filthy, and very strong. The 154CM stainless steel holds an excellent edge, and is also very easy to sharpen. The pocket clip used on the Grip holds up and does not bend. Overall, this knife is a winner!

I have owned this knife for three years and it still is working fine. There was one time where the screw on the handle was loose and needed retightening but this knife has lasted a very long time.
I think that the serrated edge to the blade is at a great advantage. I always use it to cut rope and braided line.
I don't even use this knife for hunting it is just a good all around knife for fishing and misc. activities.

Benchmade Mini Griptilian
I previously had received as a gift a Benchmade Mini Griptilian with the tanto style blade. I liked the knife- it was of good quality, but did not particularly favor the blade style. I recently purchased the drop point version and really love this one. The blade size and shape is practical and perfect for an every day carry knife. It is rugged enough to easily handle typical day to day chores. The size is nice in that it takes up little space and it is so light you hardly realize you have a knife. The quality is excellent. What a difference the blade shape made in my favor for a knife.

This is a great all around blade. Perfect size for every day use. Blade comes razor sharp from the factory and holds it's edge well. The serrated blade is a great feature in my opinion. Easy one hand operation.
