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.
Overall this is a good, functional pocketknife that will give years of service.
I like the black SBK finish, and yes, after years of use the black finish does "blemish" a little bit, but not much, I still like it and that's what I prefer. If you don't prefer that, don't get the SBK coated blades, they make these without it :). I'm a huge fan of the Mel Pardue designed combo edge blades...nothing too crazy looking, very functional and sleek.
If you're buying this as a gift for a Man, you can't go wrong, what Man or Woman can't use a knife? These are very functional and even if you have to (hopefully never do) you could use this for self defense. Than again, I also carry a concealed handgun on me whenever I can (legally, I'm a CPL holder in my state), so I'm the type that likes to be prepared.
I chose this over the mini because I'm a pretty big guy and I wear clothing that makes me holding this knife not an issue. If you're looking to buy a gift for a Man, buy him this. Hell, I'll be buying my girlfriend one after posting this. Everyone should have a good EDC (every day carry) knife that they can rely on, and I can say without a doubt, as a combat veteran, that I can rely on this knife.
