the handle is...unexpected, its a hard plastic, not as sandpaper-ish as zytel, more smooth and easy on the hands yet it grips in your hand superbly, the jimping on the back of the blade and on the handle work well, it really grabs your thumb well. The fullsize griptillian does not have full length liners, they run roughly 3/4 th's of the handle, the mini-griptilian does have full liners.
As far as locks go, the axis lock is hands down the best ive ever seen or used, it locks up securely every time, is incredibly strong, theres no blade play whatsoever and its so easy to use not to mention fully ambidextrous. the blade opens lightning fast with a flick of the thumb, and if you pull back the axis lock it can be easily and quickly opened or closed with a twist of the wrist.
The pocket clip is strong and the knife rides low in the pocket, a bit of the handle is left exposed but not enough to worry about. and it can be taken off and put on the opposite side of the handle for left handed/pocket carry, tip up only though.
Not much to say about the serrations, theyre sharp and functional, the coating however i dislike, its a matte black coating that can be aesthetically damaged with relative ease, a TiNi (Titanium Nitride) coating would have been better suited but the rest of the knife more than makes up for this small imperfection on an almost perfect knife.
For the money, this knife is an amazing deal, if it cost $150 it would still be worth it IMHO, after handling and owning one of these, i can see why the griptilian is such a popular knife with as high a reputation as it has.
if your looking for a great knife with a good steel, splurge the money and get this knife, you wont regret it.
