Features

  • Country of Origin: USA
  • 154CM: An American made premium grade stainless steel originally developed for tough industrial applications. Known for its best all-around qualities, it offers great corrosion resistance with good toughness and edge quality.
  • AXIS® A patented Benchmade exclusive, AXIS has been turning heads and winning fans ever since its introduction. A 100-percent ambidextrous design, AXIS gets its function from a small, hardened steel bar which rides forward and back in a slot machined into both steel liners. The bar extends to both sides of the knife, spanning the liners and positioned over the rear of the blade. It engages a ramped, tang portion of the knife blade when it is opened. Two omega style springs, one on each liner, give the locking bar it's inertia to engage the knife tang, and as a result the tang is wedged solidly between a sizable stop pin and the AXIS bar itself.

Cons: None
Outstanding EDC knife!
I was looking for a knife for everyday use in urban environment that had an appearance and sober at the same time had the best characteristics of a good knife for self defense, to replace my heavy knife Spyderco Manix2. I particularly like the 154cm steel and began looking for options with this material. I read many reviews about the Benchmade Griptilian and then decided to buy. Could not have a better impression when I received the knife in the mail. The quality is amazing from the finish to the internal locking systems and quality edging. The black matte finish is totally different from other knives of the same quality, and the fact that it is completely ambidextrous was also an important factor in my choice. I'm used to the method of Spyderco thumbhole opening and the fact that this option also in Benchmade Griptilian was the turning point. Anyway, could not be more pleased with the option to Benchmade Griptilian. It is a lightweight knife, sober and at the same time effective and impressive build quality! I emphatically recommend this knife!

Best for the money
Best folder for the money. It is durable, holds an edge and has lasted me for 5+ years. I am on my second blade but that was my fault. ( don't use as a pry bar) Buy it.
