I finally found a store in my area that sells a very good selection of knifes. After an hour or so of looking at all of the knives I was interesting in after researching for the last week it came down to three knives. This benchmade 551, the cold steel lawman, and a spyderco which I am unsure of the model.
As I was playing with the grip of the lawman my finger oh so gently brushed the edge near the grip. It split my finger open like butter. The bleeding was far worth the amusement, and the lesson. I almost thought it was a sign to buy it. I like the heavy weight of the cold steel knives.
The spyderco was very quick to draw from the pocket, and was extremely light. Wisconsin is a open carry state so pocket draw isn't what I was looking for, and I like more weight.
Finally I go around to the Benchmade section. The man showed me a mini barrage (585?), but I wanted something with a handle that has something for my big hands to really grip (I have size sixteen shoes and my hands match). He brought out a griptilian. I asked if the knife would hold up well, and I saw lots of videos of how good cold steel is and I wanted a comparison. He looked like a light bulb went off in his head and pulls out a knife he said a customer left there when he bought a new one. It was this same knife. The knife looked like the owner lived in the northern wisconsin forest for a year, george of the jungle style, and use that knife for everything, and then smashed the knife with a skid steer bucket into concert for amusement when he got back to civilization to buy a new knife. It was beat up, but the knife was still holding up. It had some wiggle that looked like it could of just been tightened up.Read more ›
I do wish it were a little thinner and that the handle didn't seem so 'plastic-ey'. The handle material has held up though, so it's more perception than performance. Pretty small put-offs for a near perfect knife. If one was looking for just one folder to own and wasn't a compulsive collector(like myself), the griptillian would be the knife to own hands down. For around $100.00 you'll have it for a lifetime.
