Description

Benchmade has upgraded Griptilian knives with premium CPM-S30V blade steel!

The Mini Griptilian features textured Blue Handle Scales (which are very strong and very lightweight). Double 410 stainless liners add strength to the knife handle. The blade is satin finished. The pocket clip can be reversed for right or left handed people. The AXIS lock system makes the knife easy to open and easy to close (it operates identically for right and left handers). Features ambidextrous dual thumb-stud.

i got this for my sister, an avid backpacker. i wanted something that would hold up to some abuse and mistreatment, it seems really solid. blue scales are high visibility and won't be lost if she drops it. its lightweight enough to not be an issue. benchmade makes great stuff and this knife, while not inexpensive is totally worth the price. CPM-S30V is a great steel for repeated use and exposure to water. it sharpens well and fairly easily. i don't expect she'll break the blade. axis locking system is always cool. finally, the warranty is very solid.

I bought this for my wife so she'd stop using kitchen knives and other "inappropriate" cutting implements for boxes and package opening around the house.

She really only uses it for opening packages, but she really does like it and finds the Axis lock very easy and simple to use.

I have carried this knife every day for about 7 month and have loved it. Great blade, great action, and perfect lock up. 10/10 would recommend.

I bought this maybe 6 months ago and itís absolutely amazing. The only thing I changed was getting a deep carry clip for it from Benchmade. Iíve carried this knife since I bought it. Comes razor sharp, very strong, and you can do just about anything with it from opening boxes, cooking, and surprisingly I was able to cut down like a 3inch tree. Still sharp after a lot of hard use and I donít need to sharpen often. I highly recommend this knife. Also when I purchased this it was with 154cm not S30V
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.

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.
GREAT EDC

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.

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+
AWESOME EDC
