BM555BKHGSN: 555BKHGSN Mini Hollow Ground Griptilian
The Griptilian is born of custom knife maker Mel Pardue's passion for functional designs. You release the creature's ferocity with a thumb stud. At the very heart of the Griptilian, is the exclusive AXIS™ locking mechanism. This modern marvel gives life to a cutting tool like you have never experienced before, especially in a lightweight folder. Rock-solid ambidextrous function is sure to tame the most die-hard of traditionalists. And you can grab onto the lightweight, injection molded handle with its grip-textured surface and rib covered spine that grabs you right back for a "can't let go" grip.

  • AXIS® A patented Benchmade exclusive, AXIS has been turning heads and winning fans ever since its introduction. A 100-percent ambidextrous design, AXIS gets its function from a small, hardened steel bar which rides forward and back in a slot machined into both steel liners. The bar extends to both sides of the knife, spanning the liners and positioned over the rear of the blade. It engages a ramped, tang portion of the knife blade when it is opened. Two omega style springs, one on each liner, give the locking bar it’s inertia to engage the knife tang, and as a result the tang is wedged solidly between a sizable stop pin and the AXIS bar itself.

So Worth The Money!
I have had this knife for about two weeks. I work in a brewery and frequently am cutting boxes, hop bags, grain bags, trimming co2 hoses, cutting out decals for tap handles, preparing lunch and countless other things. This knife just fits that "every day" role perfectly. Sharp as hell, great belly for slicing, just enough tip for poking, and super easy to one hand open and close which is necessary more than youd think. It feels very solid with no blade play yet it is still light enough to comfortably toss in my pocket. Furthermore, though this knife is more in the "tactical" family of knives, the size and somewhat minimalist graceful shape really don't seem to alarm anyone when used in public. Oh and this is my first experience with 154cm and i gotta say i am impressed.... it came sharp and took a LOT of cutting and even light whittling and still didnt need to be sharpened. Now I did chink the blade when I dropped it and i figured sharpening would be a pain since the edge held up so well otherwise... dead wrong... insanely easy to sharpen for such good edge retention. damn good knife, smooth operation, phenomenal blade steel, solid build, = WORTH THE MONEY!

Very sturdy locking mechanism, and a razor sharp blade out of the box. Very comfortable in the hand and just perfect for a EDC knife.
