Description
BM555HG: 555HG Mini Hollow Ground Griptilian
Benchmade
 
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.

Buy quality product and you'll have to buy only once
There is only few things that can be said that have not been said before. This is an amazing knife out of the box. I have been reading for quite a while about this company and it has surpassed my expectations. This thing is wicked sharp out of the box. I would definitely would buy from KnifeCenter and Benchmade again.

Absolutely Impressive
I have had this knife for about a year and two months, and it is still going strong. Blade: Great steel, it lost its factory edge about six months in of regular, everyday use. It takes a little effort to hand sharpen it back, but it was well worth it. Handle: Very comfortable, even for a smaller knife in a bigger hand. The clip did start to get a little loose after a while, but it was fixed without much effort. The paint does get scratched off of the clip, but I didn't mind the look :p Lock: What can I say? The AXIS system is probably the best on the market and the absolute best I've ever dealt with. The open thumb hole provides a very convenient way to open the knife smoothly and safely. Overall: If you like the look of the knife, buy it. You can't go wrong. Guaranteed.
