    Simply amazing
    So I just recently upgraded to a Gerber Paraframe from an old, tiny knife I got when I was a child. Have used it for a decade and a half now roughly on LOTS of occasions, and since I use a knife so often between work and such, I decided an upgrade would be worth the investment. After buying the Gerber, I somehow got lost in a rabbit hole of knives, and now I can't stop researching them. For my next knife, I actually went to the custom shop here and made a black and white variant of the Mini Grip. And I am absolutely blown away by it. I've heard nothing but good things about Benchmade knives, and I understand why now. The process of creating it and getting it shipped was quick, the knife came in perfect condition, and it just simply blows me away. Blade centering was spot on, grips were flawless (don't understand why people give the stock nylon grips such a hard time. They are super nice feeling and seem durable as you'd ever need from a knife like this), the coat and finish on the blade were just perfect and razor sharp out of the box. I also ordered a 940-1701 and a Battlewash Bugout along with this custom Mini Grip, and I can't wait to get a hold of those as well. Great product and looking forward to doing more business with y'all moving forward!

    Some QC issues
    I've got 2 mini griptilians. Both are black FRN handle, one is plain edge satin sheepsfoot, and the other is plain edge satin drop point. Both are in s30v, and they hold an edge much better than the budget s35vn blade I was carrying prior. The actions are smooth, easy one handed operation, even though I normally can only get 4 fingers on it (my hands are not huge, I barely fill size L gloves). They're both the ideal edc blades IMO.

    Now to explain my star deductions. Both of mine have the same uneven grind on the first inch of the tip of the blades. I own a constant angle sharpener, so o was able to fix this issue myself. My sheepsfoot out the box was un-centered, and had blade play out of the box. I was able to fix this by tightening the pivot. But there's a very small range of adjustment where the issues are fixed, but the action can still be operated one handed. Miss that range by 1/8 of a turn, it has issues either with blade play, or sluggish action. Over time the pivot will loosen again, forcing me to try to find that perfect pivot adjustment again. My drop point mini grip on the other hand, didn't have any of these issues out the box, and the action has still been perfect so far.

    Disappointed
    I ordered a Custom Mini Griptilian with the sheeps foot blade and glass nylon handles. It cost me right at $150.

    What I love:
    Great blade that is as smooth as butter opening. It has a great weight and feel in the hand. I love the blue handle color. I've always just bought black. Glad I went with the blue.

    What I hate:
    Blade off center when closed and the handles still have the connection point were it came out of the mold. Poor finish and quality control for a $150 knife. I wished I could post pics of it.

    This was my first Benchmade and I have wanted one for a very long time. Decided to finally treat myself. I wanted a CLA as well. Not completely sure I am going to take the risk though.

    First Benchmade
    About 4 years ago, I lost my pocket knife of a cheaper variety. I use a knife everyday and decided to look for a better knife, in my price range. The Mini Grip was my choice. Nothing fancy, or custom. I just needed a good knife for every day use. It fit the bill perfectly. I still have it to this day even though my EDC is now a 940. I'll be sending the Mini back soon for a resharpening and tune up. The clip has started to come loose a little, after a couple years of daily use. Great small knife for EDC,

    Great EDC
    I’ve had my all black serrated mini griptilian as my edc for almost 2 years now. It’s a great knife, the size is perfect and fits well with any pair of pants. The blade material holds an edge very well. I absolutely love this knife especially for the price. I’m definitely going to buy another one in a new color. Highly recommend

    Outstanding EDC Knife
    I carried another well known brand for over 20 years and while it never failed me, I always wanted to try a Benchmade. After much research and fretting, I decided to try a Mini Grip instead of the updated version of my old standby (it is a very good knife that I won’t name here but it sounds like Zydeco Celica). I got a tanto blade S30V and I have been absolutely thrilled with it. The steel is superior, it carries well, the action is excellent, and it is just the right size for my smallish hands. Do yourself a favor and get one now. You won’t be disappointed.

    Custom mini-grip
    First let me state that if you can afford it go for the custom mini-griptilian, this will truly make it your knife. I got a mini-grip with a plain satin drop point blade, 20cv steel and g10 scales and a little personal motto laser etched on the blade.
    I received it a week and a half later and my first impression was that of awe at the aesthetic quality of the knife. Then I did my usual checks: it was razor sharp out of the box; perfectly centered; and the grind was spot on. It was perfect and the g10 was flawless.
    I would highly recommend using the custom option if you are interested in getting a mini-grip. I definitely have no regrets.
    This was my first Benchmade ever and I am definitely coming back for more.

    Everyone's favorite grip, just a little bit smaller
    I bought a mini griptilian for my brother for Christmas this last past year with coated 154cm steel. He has carried it every day and has really put it through its paces. It has held up extremely well and I've only touched up the blade once for him in that time. While I think he could benefit from a harder steel, the mini grip is a perfect knife for Every Day Carry for probably 90% or more of people who carry knives. Tons of configurations from color choices to blade profiles/shapes. Buy one, you won't be disappointed.
