  • 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.

Love both #
Both 550 and 556 are quality made items, a bit intense, not pocket knifes!

Instantly became my favorite knife
I had read good reviews about this knife...all true. Out of the box, sharpest knife I own and instantly has become my EDC. I like my many other knives, but the now live in the dresser drawer or garage. I can't say enough good things about the Griptilian. I'm a believer and now loyal customer to Benchmade.
