Review for griptilian giveaway!!!
Steele w. on Jan 6, 2018

Not enough people know about and own this knife! Very ergonomic while still possessing a neutral handle, not forcing your hand into an uncomfortable position, or causing any major hotspots or blisters. But at the same time, when you give up a well defined finger guard/choil, you will lose grip when wet, especially with its anodized aluminum scales, which are fairly grippy when dry, but when encountering a scenario where piercing is necessary, your hand slipping is a possibility.. again, due to the neutrality of the handle. Other than that, the action is great! You keep the axis lock with an additional lock reinforcement slide (is what I call it) and that almost makes it like that of a fixed blade, in other words, very strong lock. And when dealing with autos, the standard plunge, push button lock pales in comparison to this knife. Very robust with steel liners and as I said the aluminum scales. Heavy but appropriate for tackling any task you throw at it!!
