Customer Reviews

For the griptilian lovers with medium-large meat mitts
Rian K. on Dec 9, 2019

I had originally bought the mini griptilian in early August and fell in love with it. The only thing that would constantly bother me is the size of the handle. As a man with medium meat mitts I felt the mini did not give me a great purchase and I was constantly trying to find a good grip. The full size came into my life and gave my medium sized hands the perfect home with no struggle to get a good grip on the handle. The other thing I noticed, the action is much better when opening and closing. The extra weight in the blade definitely makes opening and closing the full size much easier and more satisfying. As a wise man once said, "buttery smooth."

Great knife

I carry this when I want something a little bigger than the mini. Orange is good because it's hard to lose in the woods. Love it.

Surprised at the quality

This blade is the sharpest I have ever seen out of the box. I really love the Axis lock. It's so smooth. And the blade steel is great. So I decided to try it. I thought I would hate the GRN handle scales. I actually like them. They are light yet a lot more durable than I expected. The blade is beautiful. It looks unreal how perfect it is. I can not find any flaws in the grinds. I didn't think it was worth the $100 until I bought it. I'm happy with my purchase.

Good blade and steel

I bought a Mini-Griptillian about 8 years ago that has been hiding from me for about 5 years. I decided to give it's big brother a chance to live with me. I was hugely disappointed with the stock scales and almost returned it. I added a set of G-10 scales and that made all the difference. It is now so solid and is one of my favorites. It's also a great fidget toy. It's now up there in price and quality with a couple of my 940's.
