BM556SBK: 556SBK 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.

Fantastic knife!
Benblade. The heft is great, the grip solid and, well, grippy, and the swivel is silky smooth. It's a pretty easy one-hand opener and closer. My one beef is I wish they'd go back to liner locks; the AXIS lever isn't quite as convenient as a liner lock. Buchmade has always been an industry standard and this knife hits a sweet spot of solid, compact and highly functional, what with the half/half combo t overall, this is a really fantastic everyday carry knife.

Pros: Blade Material, Overall Quality, Weight, Sheath, Handle Material, None
Cons: Ease of Opening
Very good overall but does not deploy easily
Well built. A bit small for my hand, however. Does not deploy easily without the use of both hands.
