I've had this knife for several years, having received it as a gift from my son. The axis lock is simply the best of any brand of knife, or type of lock knife I own. The blade is incredibly strong and holds a great edge. This smaller size of the Griptilian is perfect as a medium-sized pocket knife. Truly a joy to own and use.

Love this knife but... the clip is painted black and that's chipping off, as well as the blade is not centered when its closed and the handle feels cheap and for $85-$100 I expect far more. The plus, the blade quality is superb it's easily sharpened and it hold's a great edge probably the best out of any knife I've ever owned and I have well over 40 knives and it's made in America.

I've only had this knife for about a week. I love it! It's not too big and it's not too small. Great for the EDC. Sharp as a razor right out of the box, a great feel in your hand, no wiggle or looseness when the blade is open. It's the 1st Benchmade knife I've bought, but will definitely go back to them on my next purchase.

I've been a big fan of Benchmade for the past few years now and this is just another piece in my collection. The knife was sharp out of the box and it's been my EDC for the past few weeks without fail. It takes a few days of use to really appreciate how practical a tanto can be in your every day life.

Unless you need a blade that’s longer than 2.91 inches, the Benchmade Mini-Griptilian is the best every day carry knife around, and I say that as an owner of not only two Mini-Grips, but also one full-size Benchmade Griptilian, an occasional user of a Benchmade Barrage, a large Swiss Army folder (the One-Hand Trekker), and a nice Boker.

What’s so great about the Mini-Grip? First, it’s small and smooth in my pocket. If I’m wearing jeans, shorts or khakis, it’s clipped to the inside of my right-side pocket. If I’m wearing dress trousers, the knife is all the way in my pocket; its weight pulls on the pocket and doesn’t look or feel good.

I sometimes carry a full-size Griptilian, especially when going out for long walks, when I feel safer having the bigger knife’s 3.45-inch 154CM blade. But really, half an inch difference will make no difference except under special circumstances. There’s nothing that the mini-Grip can’t do during my daily adventures. (When I really want to feel safe outdoors, I carry a fixed-blade Nimravus.)

The 154CM steel on the Mini-Grip is awesome. It’s strong, it’s corrosion-resistant, and it’s easy to sharpen. It holds an edge better than less-expensive steels, like the 440C stainless on my Boker. The 154CM is a little softer than the M390 steel on the Barrage II (model 581), but on the other hand, it’s almost impossible to sharpen the Barrage unless you are very very patient.

Note: If you want different steel, you can build a custom Mini-Grip with D2, N680 or S30V steel at http://custom.benchmade.com/knives. Frankly, I don’t think that’s necessary unless you really want something other than 154CM.

Another plus for the Mini-Grip: The knife is really light weight.

I wrote a review not too long ago for the SOG Mini-trident, which is probably the most comparable knife on the market. I had bought it to replace the Mini-griptillian I had lost. The entire time I owned the SOG, I wished I had just sucked it up and spent the extra $30-40 to get the griptillian. And now that I had an excuse to pick up the tanto version of the mini-griptillian (lost the SOG some place) my doubts about the SOG were only reinforced; THIS is the knife by which all other knives should be measured!

First, the Axis-lock is simple, resilient, and addictingly satisfying to deploy. Ambidextrous, with mild spring pressure keeping the button in place, just pull it down and give your wrist a flick and the blade deploys every time. Depress the button again and flick it back shut to safely tuck the blade away with one hand and zero risk to your fingers. No infuriating "safety" switch accidentally deploying in your pocket, keeping the blade shut. No dangerous compression device or spring to wrestle with both hands to shut the blade again. Just easy, single-handed gravity based deployment. And I've NEVER been able to overpower the locking mechanism; it keeps the blade safely locked out and in place. Elegant and sophisticated, yet so mindlessly simple. Would be worth 5 stars on this feature alone.

Now, the blade. It comes from the box absolutely razor sharp. A huge plus, since I am not very good at properly sharpening blades! The weight and balance are perfect. The tanto point has a "clip point" style drop from the back of the blade ("mune") which creates a more angular tip, I would presume for added strength. I haven't had any issues with tip/blade chipping or breaking after several prying tasks.

No regrets here folks, well worth the extra bit of cash to have a higher quality, simpler, and safer knife than what the competition can offer.

This knife flips out with ease, and can be flipped closed just as easy.
Its a smooth perfectly sized knife.
The blade design is beautiful, but it does need sharpening. Not out the box truly, but its not super sharp out the box.
The handle could be made with a "high quality" different material. But the feeling is great, and it doesn't feel cheap.
The blade is locked in enough that it wont just open up, but its also easy enough to open that if you grab just the blade you can actually flip it open haha.
Overall giving this knife 4 stars wouldn't be fair because I love it.
But it is probably about a 4.5. The handle could be a litttleeeee nicer and the blade a litttttleee sharper out the box for the price your paying.
But this is a must have watch.
