Highly recommended

Great EDC. Blade comes very sharp. Practically no blade play. Solid handle and pocket clip. Locking mech is a personal favorite. While being moderately sized it fits well in the hand, even of larger hands like mine. Worth the price.
Buy it!

This knife is great. The opening/closing action is very smooth. I was worried about the small size of the handle in my large hands, but it is very comfortable (although I haven't done any real hard work with it). Comes wicked sharp. I like the thickness of the blade, it should be strong enough to last a lifetime.
Watch out for the pocket clip, it has some kind of dry lubrication on it that will stain clothing if you don't wipe it off.
Great EDC knife

I was buying Christmas gifts for the men in the family and used this as a way to check out brands of knifes I don't have. I only buy USA knifes. So when this one came in the mail, like super fast, thank you blade HQ, I got a chance to look it over and see what benchmade was all about. I was very impressed with the knife. Perfect in every way. So I kept this one for me. Looks like I will be a benchmade fan. If your thinking of getting this knife, do it.

I want to start off by saying how impressed I am on how comfortable this blade sits in the hand. The gimping on the blade felt great. This knife cuts effortlessly through just about anything and really holds and edge. Extremely recommend this knife.
My favorite EDC

I've cycled through about two dozen blades in the last three years that I've been serious about EDC. I've had several benchmades, ZTs, Spydercos, CRKTs, Kershaws, even a few Gerbers. This is the only knife I've had for more than a year and the only knife that has been a staple of my EDC for more than a few weeks at a time. It's light, super easy to open and close, has a very responsive Axis Lock, grippy polymer handle, adequate jimping, great blade shape, and on and on. I've grown to love 154cm steel, I actually like it more than higher end steels like S30v. It is super easy to sharpen and gets wicked sharp with just a Spyderco Sharpmaker. All in all, for this price, I highly recommend the Mini-grip. It's one of the best EDC blades under $100 that has ever existed and BladeHQ is the only place to even consider getting them. A+
