Description
BM556BKSN: 556BKSN Drop Point Mini Griptilian
Benchmade Knives
 
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. The Griptilian also comes with a reversible carry-clip for right or left side carry.

  • 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.

great little knife!
Great, sharp little knife. Barely know its there. Easy to pull out and flick open. Light EDC knife which is good if your already have a CHL. If you have big hands it might not work for you. Not a duty knife.

One great EDC
I bought this knife as an everyday day carry. The materials, design, and quality are all outstanding. The axis lock is simple and strong. Hard to find a better EDC at any price.

The perfect pocket knife
Only three days after I placed my order from KnifeCenter.com I had my new Mini-Grip. After several recent Spyderco purchases I still hadn't found what I was looking for. Well the search is over (for now). I was looking for a mid sized knife that didn't take up my hole pocket and one that was easy on the eyes. The Bench made Mini-Griptilian fits the bill. A really high quality knife that's going to make a great EDC. Thanks Bench made and thanks KnifeCenter.com
