I have a drawer full of knives, I have a problem, but one of my favorites is a griptilian. It's a working mans knife, and it wont let you down. Great steel, great ergos, axis lock, and different colors, you cant beat this knife for the price. It's worth every penny buy one and you'll understand.
Excellent Knife!
Preston H.
I absolutely love my Benchmade Griptilian. It is a very solid knife, yet it feels lightweight and easy to carry on a daily basis. The locking mechanism is very strong and the blade stays sharp. I would highly recommend this knife.
Great buy!

Just recently go into collecting knives and have been a big fan of spyderco. This is a great knife and itís right up there with the high end knives I own. Comes razor sharp with amazing action. The blades flys open and incredibly smooth. Love the knife
Excellent blade, handle felt cheap
Bryan H.
Benchmade quality with the blade. A decent sized knife, but not too big / oversized. Handle size and ergos are perfect for XL hands. Blade, action, lockup and fit & finish are high quality, but the handle, while many say it will last a lifetime, just felt cheap. Returned it. Will spring for the G-10/20CV version.
Should not have waited

I have read several times that the Griptilian is Benchmade's best selling blade. I have often wondered why, as it has always looked a little vanilla to me. After taking receipt of one I can tell you it is anything but vanilla. I absolutely love this knife. It is my 5th Benchmade and I do believe my favorite. I wasn't sure how I was going to take to the Nor yl , but I suprisingly like it. I should not have waited so long to buy a Griptilian , if I'd bought one sooner I might not have bought the 50 or so before. It's that good.
