Great knife
Nicholas B.
This is an amazing knife, and I highly suggest it to anyone looking for a new daily carry knife, you cannot go wrong with the price, for $114 you can own one of the best knives on the market, comes in razor sharp, no blade play, and lightweight, Iíve owned this knife and have carried it everyday for almost 2 years and itís the best knife Iíve ever had, I have very big hands and the knives handle still fits in my hands. Iíve put this thing through hell, riding to work on my bike and having it fall out of my pocket numorus of times and still working fine, sticking it in trees, throwing it at trees to try to stick in, numerous pieces of wood hacked at, an amount of abuse most knives canít take and an amount of abuse that I didnít think this knife was supposed to take, but it can, and I also think this knife is just about indestructible. I will soon be sending it in for some new screws, as I believe the ones in the clip are stripped, and for a sharpening. with this new bladehq giveaway I hope to be winning a brand new mini griptilian, although it is smaller I have been wanting a smaller edc knife recently, and have been looking to buy the same model in the giveaway for about a month now and really want it but can not afford it, so I really hope i win, but really you guys should buy the 553 griptilian.
