Product Description

Product Description

The unmatched function of AXIS combined with the simplicity of a molded handle design- get a grip! It's a new species of knife. Safe. Reliable. Smooth. Affordable. Grip in two blade styles and two knife sizes. Griptilian performance is keenly unleashed with a simple thumb rotation, wither right or left handed, you choose. The hand settles naturally over the palm swelled shape and it's textured skin

Amazon.com

Combining the unmatched functionality of an Axis locking mechanism with the simplicity of a molded handle design, the Benchmade Griptilian is a whole new species of knife. The Griptilian is equipped with a modified drop-point, combo-edge blade made of BK1-coated 154CM stainless steel. The Axis locking mechanism, meanwhile, is a longtime fan favorite. 100-percent ambidextrous, Axis derives its function from a small hardened steel bar that rides forward and back in a machined slot. With a simple thumb rotation, you'll unleash the Griptilian in a flash. Finally, the hand settles naturally over the Noryl GTX handle, which features a palm-swelled shape and textured skin.

The handle is very comfortable in my large hands and grips well for a non slip grip.

What an amazing knife for EDC use, the 154CM blade takes and holds a wicked hair shaving sharp edge, from the factory it comes hair popping sharp and stays that way with even relatively heavy use.

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.

Benchmade knives are known for their quality. I own quite a few of thier knives, and use one every day. This is a high quality knife that is made to be used every day. The blade steel on mine is 440C and holds an edge quite well. I think that benchmade make this knife with 154CM steel as well and that holds an edge even better.

Overall this is a good, functional pocketknife that will give years of service.

This is the second benchmade knife I have bought. I acquired three 5000SBKs when I was in the Army, which are automatic knives made by benchmade that are automatic, meaning you flip the switch and they fold out automatically on their own. I gave one of those to my Brother and Dad, since my Dad's birthday is coming up and we celebrated it this past weekend, I gave him one of these, and also bought one for myself :). I'm very impressed with it for the money. I bought the last 2 from a different seller on Amazon for a little cheaper, same exact product, though. My Dad is very pleased, and for my Brother's birthday in May I will be purchasing him one of these, too :). I maybe purchasing my girlfriend one, too.

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.

I bought this as a replacement for my EDC (every day carry) knife. I carried the original knife for over ten years, but lost it on a portage in the Boundary Waters Canoe Area Wilderness. The replacement is identical to the one I lost. I looked for several weeks, but just couldn't find a knife I liked better. It is well built, stays sharp, takes everyday abuse and feels just like an extention of my hand. I hope to carry this knife for at least ten years. Benchmade is quality in every aspect.

I finally found a knife I like to carry. Easy to open, easy to close, and no play in the joint. Very light, the handle is shaped just right, and it has a few places where the pocket clip can be attached. Just one complaint: there are studs on both sides of the blade for right and left handed people. I'm right handed, so the left hand stud goes to the outside when clipped to my pocket. Sometimes when taking it out of my pocket, the stud gets caught on the pocket seam, and opens it a bit. Came close to cutting me a few times, but it's a little annoying. It'd be great if it were removable.

I've been carrying this daily for about 4 months. It has cut through most everything imaginable, fabric, webbing, paracord, zip-ties, plastic, etc. This is the smoothest action I've ever felt on a non-assisted folder. I flick of the thumb and this knife opens up quickly. The arc-lock locking design holds the blade open very securely and instills confidence (much much safer than a liner lock design). Blade is 154CM, which has not required any sharpening since I bought it, just a few honings (after cutting through some Kevlar). Handle provides adequite grip and the thumb stud is large enough that I can easily draw the knife from my pocket and open it quickly with winter gloves on. Best folder I've ever owned and I highly recommend it.
