When it comes to all around functionality, you can't beat the Griptilian®.

The Mini-Griptilian provides a low-profile pocket friendly version of the knife.

  • CPM-S30V Steel Blade - American made premium powdered steel designed specifically for knives. Offering excellent corrosion resistance and superior edge qualities this steel is perfect for everyday use or specialized outdoor activities.
  • Glass-Filled Nylon Handles - Impact resistant and weatherproof while retaining a lightweight profile these grips are great for EDC knives that will be used and abused!
  • AXIS Manual Opening Mechanism - 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 that rides forward and back in a slot machined into both steel liners. The bar extends to both sides of the knife, spans the liners and is 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 its inertia to engage the knife tang. As a result, the tang is wedged solidly between a sizable stop pin and the AXIS® bar itself.
