I have always loved the Mini-Griptillian and probably won't change to anything else (for more than a few days) because I always come back to my Mini-Grip, This was the third one I purchased. Once you can clean it and put some lubricant on, you can get some amazing action on it. Great value for the pricing as well. Feels solid and good ergonomics. This is the one I have carried since I bought it (exactly 1 week ago) and I love it so much, Great Pocket Knife that you shouldn't pass up on.

Lightweight, sharp, great steel. This knife has a lot of things going for it. My first knife with axis lock and a thumb hole. It took a little getting used to but no regrets. Was a little stiff out of the box but has broken in nicely. Have enjoyed it as my EDC. Only knock is the plastic handle. Doesn't feel terrible, but it does feel like plastic, and the scales are little rough when reaching into my pocket to grab my keys. Not a deal-breaker for me though. Overall great knife that I will be carrying for a while.

when I first got this knife I hated it. the shape, the weight, all of it. after twenty minutes of fighting with the thumb hole and the axis lock, I'm a new fan. This feeling like the best of both worlds from the iconic bench made axis lock to the fun factor of the spidy-flick. This lil guy has become my EDC, and I love it. razor sharp s30v, great grip, its a winner. I am planing on slapping some AWT scales on, just because I like a little more heft, but 5 stars
A great EDC, but not quite perfect

I normally prefer frame locks, but more recently have fallen in love with the axis lock. I think the mini with the thumb hole is really the optimal EDC configuration. I also have a G10 scale model, and honestly prefer the lower end polymer grips as these are much grippier to me. I do wish they would make a G10 model with more grippiness as the polymer model does feel just a bit plasticky. My other complaint is that my mini is not quite as smooth in closing as my full size grip or my foray, both of which easily drop closed.The mini takes a bit of a flip to close. Still a fantastic EDC, and a decent value on the S30V model!

This is the knife that started it all for me. The axis lock is fantastic and has an excellent fidget factor to it. Extremely durable quality and an absolute workhorse of a knife. If I know I need to use a knife and want something that is going to be more than pocket candy, this is the blade I grab.

I absolutely love the Mini Grip. With the "spidey" hole and that Axis Lock, it is just my absolutely favorite fidgeting knife. Light, compact, great steel. It is an underrated winner!

I really do like the Benchmade griptilian. I've been waiting to get it for a while. It is very sharp out the box. Love the design of he blade. Action is really smooth. Fun to play with. The reason for the for star is, cause my blade wasn't centered at all and the scales do feel like plastic. I really do like the 🔪.
Bad heat treat?

I bought this because I love the griptillian line of knives and because theyíve upgraded the steel. Unfortunately only a few days after getting the knife I was cutting up some leather on a cutting mat and the very end of the tip snapped off. I wasnít prying with it, just a point cut with the tip in contact with the mat. Very disappointing and Iím wondering if I got a bad heat treat. Never had a problem with S30v on any other knife.
