The AXIS lock system makes the knife easy to open and easy to close (it operates identically for right and left handers).

Should not have waited
Jimmy w.
I have read several times that the Griptilian is Benchmade's best selling blade. I have often wondered why, as it has always looked a little vanilla to me. After taking receipt of one I can tell you it is anything but vanilla. I absolutely love this knife. It is my 5th Benchmade and I do believe my favorite. I wasn't sure how I was going to take to the Nor yl , but I suprisingly like it. I should not have waited so long to buy a Griptilian , if I'd bought one sooner I might not have bought the 50 or so before. It's that good.
