Description
BM556P: 556 Drop Point Mini Griptilian
Benchmade Knives
 
The Griptilian is born of custom knife maker Mel Pardue's passion for functional designs. You release the creature's ferocity with a thumb stud. At the very heart of the Griptilian, is the exclusive AXIS locking mechanism. This modern marvel gives life to a cutting tool like you have never experienced before, especially in a lightweight folder. Rock-solid ambidextrous function is sure to tame the most die-hard of traditionalists. And you can grab onto the lightweight, injection molded handle with its grip-textured surface and rib covered spine that grabs you right back for a "can't let go" grip. The Griptilian also comes with a reversible carry-clip for right or left side carry.

  • 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.

Excellent all around pocket knife
Purchased this with two other knives from Knifecenter.com. As promised upon placing the order, they showed up withing three days. Like all the benchmade products I have come across, the quality is excellent and this will be my everyday "utility" pocket knife.

Great knife!
For one KnifeCenter has the best price I was able to find for this knife. also after having and carrying this knife for a month now it is an amazing edc knife, I have used it for everything from cutting cardboard at work to making feathersticks and cutting green saplings for marshmallow roasting. it functions amazingly well and holds a great edge. Was actually disappointed with one of my other knives in D2 because it chipped doing the same minor chores and is a fixed blade... great quality with an amazing heat treat good steel. not in the least disappointed with the quality of this knife. bit stiff at first but smoothed out with use after about two weeks and is now like silk. locks up every time only pet peeve is that pocket lint gets into the mechanism but has not effected lockup in any way.
