Description
BM5561701: 556-1701 Mini Griptilian
Benchmade
 
The Griptilian is born of custom knifemaker 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. With the 556-1701, Benchmade welcomes in a beautifully upgraded Mini Griptilian combining precision machined titanium alongside wood and brass details. This limited edition is individually numbered and features CPM-20CV stainless steel. CPM-20CV is virtually identical in chemical composition to Benchmade's current M390 steel but is made in the USA by Niagara as opposed to Bohler, which is based Austria. It offers better edge retention but is not quite as tough to sharpen as M390.

Pros: Overall Quality, Blade Sharpness, Handle Feel, Weight, Blade Material
Cons: None
Awesome little knife
Construction, materials, quality are all great. I only wish the scale coating was a little more durable, I scratched it on a rivet in my jeans pocket almost instantly. No worries though, I like my knives to be carried and used and I know they will show the wear eventually, I was just a little surprised is all. Most people will likely leave this one in the box forever, but I intend to enjoy mine.
