    Sunday go to meeting knife
    I have carried a knife since I was a Cub Scout, I'm naked without one. This little guy is more to show than to use but it is a very sharp and capable. I bought a Benchmade years ago and just can't stop purchasing them. I keep a new griptilian and barrage on hand to give as gifts.

    Love it!
    Retired Police Officer. Got this knife as a gift and I absolutely love it! I carry it with me every day and I use it regularly. I’ve sharpened pencils, opened boxes and cleaned my nails with it! It’s small but handy! Great knife, well built!

    Let’s hear it for the girls!!!
    I am so not a knife person. My only “knife” was the little Swiss army with the tweezers and tooth pick that was used to file a nail, open an amazon package or remove basil from my teeth after eating pesto. I’m 5’2 105lbs and stumbled upon this knife during one of my husband’s many knife dreaming stops. When I saw the Impel, I thought it was a cute little knife and asked to see it. I feel in love with how easy it was to use (no more nail chipping pulling out a blade). I can open and close it with one hand and best of all, it fits in my front jean pocket comfortably and undetected. Carrying my Impel almost has the same effect on my husband as when I get new lingerie...lol!

    Perfect knife for daily use
    I have been abusing my first one for several years and bought another in 2015- they are incredibly reliable, S30V is amazing, and I have never even thought about going back to various other knives I used to use. After hundreds of thousands of cycles, they just keep working. It is easy to maintain and blast clean with air or even water in a pinch. I hope it is never discontinued.

    Breaks often
    Mine has been sent back to be repaired five different times. It's a cool knife and Benchmade backs it with a great warranty but it's a pain to have to keep sending it back.

    Benchmade quality shows through even with this diminutive auto folder.
    Great EDC and a handsome addition to my collection. The visit to the Benchmade facilities was a highlight of my vacation. Thanks for the hospitality.

    Surprise Concern
    Love the knife, the size, the design, the materials, the action. All terrific. But with VERY minimal use (actually cut some packing tape a few times) I see today that the safety switch has gone missing. (Was sitting in my briefcase). Disappointed.

    A very useful knife for the office
    It is VERY tough, VERY convenient and VERY easily handled. One easily forgets that it is there, until it is needed. Only criticism -- the edge as provided is not fabulous, and needs a bit of work. I like it and have recommended it to many people.

    The safety is good, small, adequately strong and intuitive.

    Very well made
    I love this knife! It's small, stylish, and sleek. It cuts extremely well. The automatic opening is superb quality. The best thing about it is the size and weight. It's almost like it's not in my pocket! Can't wait to buy more Benchmade knives in the future.

    Gentlewoman's knife? YES!
    I've been admiring Benchmade's lineup since the late 90's. I was 19 years old, working in a Ma & Pop knife shop, and begged my boss to carry them even though they were a higher pricepoint than our other pocketknives. I sold the heck out of them! Fast-forward 20 years, and I've been constantly calling on my husband to lend me his Griptillian. I really wanted a mini, but it was just a little too big and heavy for me to carry (5'2" housewife). We found the Impel at our favorite knife shop this weekend, and I'm in love! It's the perfect size for my hand, solid, and lightweight. It fits it in my bra for after-dark walks, so I can have my alone time without looking over my shoulder. Forget being a modern Gent's knife - market it to the wives! Thank you, Benchmade.
