The listing for my specific knife has been taken down but this knife is the same just a different handle color.

I've had this knife only over a week, but it has become my favorite of all my knives. It bests my Boker Kihon, Boker Strike, and CRKT Pilar Large. (All knives that I love and enjoy)

Pros:
1. The textured grip on the handle bites into your handle and makes the knife feel secure.
2. The thumb hole lets you flip the knife open with ease without hurting your thumb like a thumb stud does.
3. The AXIS lock without a doubt makes this knife one handed operation. I can sit there and flick the knife open and closed with one hand all day.
4. The integrated jimping on the blade and handle are laid out very well and add extra grip where you hold the knife.

Cons:
1. I haven't found any yet.

I would recommend this knife or any of the Griptilian series to anyone. It is a quality knife and worth the money.
Good knife

I will agree the the scales do feel cheep and are sharp at some points, but they are decently durable. Not super sharp, atleast mine wasn't. This is my first benchmade and i love the axis lock, but you may want to losen the screw because its a little tight but it wears in great. Love 154cm, works great for edc. I would recomend a deep carry pocket clip.
Update: love this knife. Amazing lock up, absolutely no blade play. Not a huge fan on blade shape but that it my fault for purchasing this model. Great knife to fidget with. 100% recommend to anybody interested.
Classic Benchmade

Benchmade knives are always a fun choice, but they always have some set backs. The griptillian line always gets flak for its cheap scales, and yes they are super cheap feeling. Mine actually had sharp plastic mold lines still on the edges of the plastic. Completely unacceptable on a $100+ knife. I had to file them down myself.

The blade shape and steel are great. I do love benchmades 154cm.

If you plan on getting one, do yourself a favor; wait to get paid one more time and spend the extra $50 to get the g10 model.
