Description
BM556SBLU: 556SBLU 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.

Mini Grip works for me
This is my first Mini Griptilian from Benchmade. I own dozens of other knives and wasn't too keen on fixating on another small blade. What drew me to this was the color, I like blue! I also wanted to see what others saw in their Mini Grips. With this knife I was not overly fond of in the beginning. The handle is not too thick, but feels like plastic. Feels cheap. The blade is sharp and functional. I do like the Axis lock up and thumb stud for opening and closing. However, the more I played with, it the better I liked it. I also bought the full size Griptilian with this purchase and the handle is just too thick. The Mini-Grip is better and does not show as much bulk as its bigger brother.
