The Griptilian from the Griptilian Series is an accessibly-priced and durably-built folder from Benchmade.

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

Daughters First Knife
James H. on Feb 23, 2019

I bought this knife for my daughter when she turned 13 as a way to teach her about knives and give her a responsibility to care for it and carry it. The knife is excellent in every way and she is very good handling it. She carries it every day when she is not at school.

Great lightweight folder
Ethan C. on Jun 28, 2017

Lightweight, Compact and tough. 154cm holds and takes a good edge. Blade coating wears very well, doesn't chip. However the pocket clip doesn't have the same coating. After a few scratches it starts to look cheap. However it is well worth the money.
