I ordered a Griptilian using Benchmade's custom order function. Paying slightly more for the custom order function, I expected to receive the exact knife I ordered; unfortunately, this was not the case. Although the knife seems to be well made with quality components, it is not what I ordered. A comparison of the invoice shipped with my knife versus the actual knife clearly shows a discrepency. A standard quality control should not be missed by a reputable company.

The Griptilian was the first Benchmade knife I bought after years of using the cheap $30 knives from local sporting goods stores. Man was I impressed! Right out of the box you can see and feel the difference in quality and you know you have a great product. Mine is the satin drop point blade, serrated edge, standard handle, 154cm steel and after 2 years it's held up very well and i've put it through some hard use. I'm now sold on Benchmade and have also purchased the Mini Griptilian and the Boost 590SBK. Absolutely excellent craftsmanship and quality!

After I bought it at my local surplus store, I took it out of the box and to no surprise, it was hair-popping sharp, and I think it's going to last me a long time. Just buy the knife!

This if my first Benchmade knife, and so far, I am very pleased. I have several other knives which used to be my favorite, but they are all in the drawer now, and my Griptilian is now my EDC.

just recieved my custom designed griptilian and right out of the box it looks and feels great, very sharp and is exactly what i expected when i ordered it, took a bit longer to get than i expected but not to bad and it was clearly worth the weight the only issue i'm seeing with it so far is that the axis lock is really stiff but i'm sure that will clearance itself very quickly so i think it's safe to say i'm very happy with this product

4+ years of use in the oil field and I am finally sending it in to be professionally looked over. It’s been through a lot “use” to say the least. Anyone who knows, the oil field can be rough. From severe weather conditions and all sorts of chemicals, this knive has stood up to some extreme use and still works great.

For years my cousin and I will send each other gifts randomly. If we find that we like a product we just send one to the other guy. 2 years ago I purchased 2 for both of us. It's definitely one of the best gifts that I've sent his way. We both use the knife often, I wear mine almost every day in the benchmade sideways sheath (also a cool product). After owning many knives for work and having them dull quickly or even break I've found that spending a little extra on the quality knife is worthwhile. I've used this knife to cut through 8" mooring lines on my ship which we would normally use a hacksaw for and the knife has held up well. It's steady, sharpens well and is built to last.

First of all let me say that IMO the "standard" Gryptilian is the best EDC knife made. IMO the number of knives and styles in the Benchmade lineup are too confusing. Of course the goal of any business is to make a profit but for the potential buyer to try to figure out....from BM's literature...what knife to buy it is just too confusing. I am a retired Graduate Metallurgical Engineer B.S.1953 U.of I. I have worked for 2 steel makers during my career. D2 steel is my favorite but you can only get a GRyp. in D2 from one supplier...to my knowledge. I own several GRPts both full size and Mini...new and used, D2 and SS. I have an extensive knife collection but the Gryp. with semi-serr blade in BM's standard Stainless grade is my EDC knife.

I've had two griptilian's over the year. My newest I lost in less than a year. The older one that I still carry, I purchased in the early 2000's. It must be around 15 years old. It's still going strong and I haven't been kind to it. I live on the east coast. When I was out in Oregon I stopped by the shop. Dropped it off and they sharpened it, replaced a few screws I lost along the way. They went through it and sent it back. It was like having a brand new knife all over again. The knife has been great as well as my interactions with the company. Highly recommend.
