Description
BM556BLU: 556BLU 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.

Simply the perfect EDC
The mini-griptillian is simply, in my opinion, the perfect EDC. I have small hands and appreciate a quality knife, and for the price I honestly do not believe you can get a better EDC knife. I first bought the 555BKHG Mini Griptilian and loved it so much I bout this, the 556BLU, for my girlfriend. I love the feel of the knife, even though the scales are a lighter plastic as apposed to G10, but the scales make it so light. Razor sharp out of the box, the axis lock is absolutely phenomenal. No blade play. Benchmade makes good knives, and Knifecenter is fantastic in its service and shipping. I live in Canada and even though I have to pay a bit extra it is worth it for what i get in return, thanks Knifecenter and Benchmade.
