The Axis Lock makes one handed operation easy and fluid. The same locking mechanism also makes closing this blade a snap. The lock is sturdy, and after 7 years still going strong.
Benchmade has a lifetime sharpness warranty on their blades. You send your knife to them with $5 for return shipping, they bring it back up to manufacture sharpness and send it back to you. Last time I sent mine in they also tightened the screws holding the pocket clip to the knife, and included some spares. This knife is great for an every day carry knife, and I expect to have it for many more years.
For the price, and the warranty, I highly recommend this knife.
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.) See the photo for a comparison of the full-size and Mini-Grip closed.
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.Read more ›
