Description

Description

Benchmade's classic Griptilian knife just got even better with G-10 handles, blue barrel spacers, and a premium CPM-20CV steel blade with exceptional edge retention!

The Griptilian is a Pardue designed folding knife that utilizes the AXIS lock mechanism, which makes the knife easy to open and close for right and left hand users. The deep carry pocket clip can be reversed, making the Griptilian folder an equally amazing knife for right or left handed users.

The 550-1 has a satin finished sheepsfoot blade with a plain cutting edge and a thumb hole opener.

So comfortable and perfectly constructed knife. Dead center blade, super ergonomic, ridiculous steel keeps a sharp edge forever. Only negatives are a weaker detent that allows blade to be shaken out rather easily and rough hole cutout in the blade. Can be fixed with new omega springs from the factory.
Love this knife

I purchased this knife through BassPro, had to return it because the lock stuck and I couldnít close the knife. I asked BladeHQ to please send me the most buttery smooth benchmade ever created, and they absolutely did. Iíve had my knife for a little over a month and itís better than I couldíve dreamed. BladeHQ is hands down my favorite place to shop knives, and the customer service is outstanding! Truly love and respect you guys.
One of the best all around knives!

The sheepsfoot version of the Griptilian is one of my top 2 knives. I have many $150-$350 knives and this combo is the one that I go to over and over because it really is fantastic to carry and use. It does everything just about perfectly and the lock never gets boring. While the $100 noryl handle version is a really terrific knife, this G10 version kicks it up to feeling like a high end knife. Buttery smooth both in action and feel with really well done satin scales and the blue liners give it a nice little pop. BTW, my other favorite knife is my ZT0562ORBLK but any version(carbon fiber/G10) will be as good. All around another 10/10 knife. It hits the perfect ZT/Hinderer balance.
Love it.

Benchmade always does it right. Smooth, deployment. Sturdy body along with a good steel. Comes sharp as always out of the box.

Awesome EDC, and it comes with the Deep carry clip to make it more discrete as you carry.

Mine did come a little sticky compared to my 940-1701, and slightly off centered (nit picking) but I'm assuming it just needs a little breaking in.

This knife is a great EDC and it holds a edge really well. I swap out between this one and two of my other favorite EDC knifes I own. My Zero Tolerance 0777 flipper & my Benchmade new spring assisted Amascius flipper.
My new favorite pocket knife

After having this beautiful knife for about 2 months, I find it naturally in my pocket almost every day. It holds a great edge, is really comfortable in my hand, and (with pocket clip removed) is very slim and unnoticeable in my pocket. It's replaced my PM2 as my EDC, as the PM2 was a bit too big for my taste (still a great knife to have, but uncomfortable for work for me).
