The Mini Griptilian features textured Yellow Handle Scales (which are very strong and very lightweight). Double 410 stainless liners add strength to the knife handle. The blade is 154-CM stainless (plain) with satin finish and ambidextrous round thumb-hole opener. 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).
