Probably the most acclaimed EDC. Ever.
Sam V.
Benchmade is an absolute quality knife crafter, and this knife is no exception.

This model has been my first choice, go-to EDC knife for 4, going on 5 years. I bought it when it was about 85-90$ range, and that was obviously the right choice. All aspects are incredible. The blade shape, steel, and finish are all amazing. Pivot is butter smooth, and paired with the Axis lock, it not only is easy to deploy and fold, but it has a very solid lockup. Everything else you could try to criticize, but it shows almost no flaw.

Only one thing I changed on my own was the pocket clip. At the release of the G10 grey/blue model of the Griptillian, I loved the deep carry clip. Benchmade offers free replacement clips for free, upon request at their website. I simply asked for a deep carry, swapped it out for the standard clip, and now I love this knife even more.
