The Benchmade Griptilian 550SBKHGOD knife features textured, OD green colored Noryl GTX handles, which are very strong and very lightweight. Double 420J stainless liners add strength and rigidity to the knife handle. The AXIS lock mechanism makes the knife easy to open and easy to close for right and left handers. The modified Sheepsfoot blade is black finished 154-CM stainless steel with a hollow grind, partially serrated edge and ambidextrous thumb hole. The pocket clip can be reversed for right or left handed use. Mel Pardue design.
I love this knife! a little more $ then I usually spend on a knife but I think it's well worth it. flys open and shut. fun to flick. lol super sharp scales a re grippy like the name says. feels good in hand. some dont lile the handle material but I have no problem with them. want to get a mini grip next
This knife has been to the end of the world and back-literally. It has been dropped in a lake, ran over by a truck, gutted animals, cut rope, and it is still in service. I had to send back to Benchmade when I broke the tip - was prying something open that I should have known better. Benchmade ground a new edge and I still use it when I am not in the office. If I had to buy this again, I wouldn't get the serration. But that is just a preference things. Steel isn't Premium but still High-End. Good retention.
