I purchased this knife about 7 years ago from a Benchmade outlet.
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.

After reading an article on Lifehacker, I decided to purchase an everyday carry (EDC), folding knife. I have always wanted one because of their utility and believe it is something most people should keep in their pockets for simple tasks and self defense (only as a secondary motive). After reviewing options from Spyderco (Tenacious and Endura 4), Kershaw (Cryo, Cryo II, Leek), Buck (Marksman), and Gerber (Ripstop), I decided on a Benchmade. Because I wanted an EDC knife with higher quality steel, yet lightweight and something reasonably priced, I selected the Mini Griptilian with the combination edge. I could not be happier with my decision. The knife performs beautifully, is very sturdy, easy to use, and will last for many years to come (unless I lose it). Not only is the knife made domestically (simple personal preference for a tool like this), but there is a lifetime guarantee that allows for blade sharpening from Benchmade I also ended up purchasing the Kershaw Cryo because of the price and great reviews, but this is a much better choice because it is lighter, made of better steel, and has the lifetime guarantee.

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.) 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.

I have had this knife for a year and can say I have used it everyday for light and hard tasks, and it's still working like the day I bought it. I use it daily to cut boxes, shave kindling, light bushcraft chores, personal defense and emergency tool. This knife holds a decent edge when maintained and the blade is very strong. If you need a good, solid, quick flick opening EDC knife, this is all you need.

If you are looking for a pocket knife, you cannot go wrong with this one. It is very sharp, easy to open, and, with the attached pocket clip, you don't even know you are carrying it. My favborite kife ever.

After losing my beloved Spyderco, my wife bought me this benchmade to replace it. I should have lost the old knife long ago. The Benchmade is the perfect size for everyday carry. The fit and craftsmanship is amazing. The blade is sharp and stays sharp far longer than my Spyderco and the blade material seems more durable. This is an amazing knife and now my sadness has turned to gladness!

By far the best and most versatile knife I own. I have an auto Benchmade that is a little larger in size and 2-3X the weight and is just not practical for daily carry. In comes the Mini-Griptilian...AMAZING! I own a lot of William & Henry knives, and while those are much better for dinner events and dressing up, the Mini-girp can do it all...out in the yard, board shorts, jeans, slacks it can adapt to them all. The W&H's don't make it out as much now, so beware this may replace all of your knives entirely! Highly recommend for a versatile, functional mid-use knife. ENJOY
