BM555HGPNK: 555HGPNK Mini Hollow Ground Griptilian
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.

  • 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.

I usually HATE pink, but this color contrasts so nicely with the black on the bolts and clip. Not only was I pleasantly surprised, but I love it. First pink anything I own. It also looks less wannabe-tactical or suspicious, which means ease of public use and carry. Only hiccup is the light color does pick up dirt and debris noticeable. The knife itself is EXCELLENT. The flipping mechanism is buttery smooth and free. The blade has a tiny bit of side-to-side play when open, but it's unnoticeable during actual use. This knife has found its role as my main whittler because it's so robust at slicing through wood smoothly -- I can do both large slices and detailed work with minimal hand fatigue or hot spots, and it's more enjoyable for whittling than my Paramilitary 2, Flexcut Carving Jack, Victorinox, and others. This sheepsfoot knife is just a champion whittler. I've only lightly stropped it with leather so far (with no compound), and this edge has been razor sharp over the last several weeks. Even accidentally stabbed my finger the other day with the slightest pressure; I was bleeding and it hurt, but couldn't stop thinking, "What a blade!!" Yeah, the plastic has a mildly cheap look to it, and there are two unfinished holes at one end of the handle that look like manufacturing mistakes... but it is light, has a comfortable shape, and I've grown to like it very much. Great pocket knife.

This mini Griptilian is my lovley wifes B-day presant. She recieves a great deal of mail regularily. The knife was put to instant use opening packages and normal mail. Tough cardboard, tape and envelope paper are no match for the 154CM and excellent blade geometry. The edge was shaving sharp out of the box. The Griptilian handle is very comfortable. The Axis lock is very easy to use and secure. It is a comfortable and highly useful knife. My wife loves the pink handle. This knife is easy to open and close one handed. The Spyderco style hole is a nice feature. Edge holding ability is very good and when it dose need sharpening that will not be a problem. Thanks and praise to the Knifecenter and Benchmade. A fine knife.
