Bought a custom mini grip with the sheepfoot blade and G10 handles. Love the size for EDC. Holds an edge like nobody's business. Highly recommended.

Just got my knife not too long ago. Thanks Benchmade for the super fast shipping. It took about 6 days for my Mini Grip to get to me and I’m currently overseas. Awesome quality and perfect fit for my hand. The blade is razor sharp. I opted for the tanto blade and no regrets. Great looks and good quality. Keep up the good work guys.

I bought my Mini Griptilian nearly 20 years ago, back when they were still using 440C steel for the blade and the knife was about $25 to $30 cheaper. I purchased many traditional slip joint pocket knives before and since, always looking for that perfect pocket knife, but keep returning time and again to the Mini Griptilian. The ease of one handed opening with the flick of my thumb and just the feel and look of the Mini keep pulling me back to it. Even though it has been my daily knife for much of the time that I've owned it and it has been rained on, sweated on, bled on when I got careless, dropped in the mud, dropped on concrete and used hard, you wouldn't know it by looking at it and it functions as well today as when I bought it. I have knives that are prettier, but none that are as beautifully functional. Really, nothing else compares.

This is the best knife I've purchased hands down. My only con is that I love the look and blade so much I'm scared to use it as my EDC.

First off I bought a custom mini grip. This knife is perfect. Completed exactly as ordered. To compare what makes it better than every other 3” non flipper you might be considering. Action, better than a small sebenza (you could get used to stabbing your thumb every time you open it though...) and a delica (ya lock backs are stronger but where is the fun in that). Qc, perfectly centered and even grinds. Materials, G10 shows no snail trails, 20cv is a beast. You hear that Chris reeves? S35vn for 350+ with a warranty that isn’t as good as benchmade. You can buy what you want and say that the grip should cost less. But think about the fact it is USA made and if it needs repairs from normal use they got you, forever. The only negative thing I can say might bother you is their handle to blade ratio is too good. Meaning if you have over large hands like me the scales are a little small. But you bought a 3” knife so ya.

This is my favorite EDC knife. I use it with the pocket clip. The blade remains sharp through all sorts of use and abuse. The mechanism worked very well when I received it, and was even more smooth and well tuned the one time I sent it in for sharpening (do it! you will like the result!).

I like the look of the blue liner on the gray handle. A little more elegant and a little less intimidating than an all black knife during a real emergency, like cutting up paracord for arts and crafts at a girl scouts event ;-).

Just so you know its an option, I work somewhere that restricts blade length to 2.5 inches. The mini griptilian has a blade that was about 2.8 inches. Benchmade was totally awesome about nicely agreeing to grind it down a bit and resharpen my knife so I could carry it at work.

This is the least expensive folding knife Benchmade makes, but it is by no means cheap. The clean design, size and quality materials make this the perfect every day carry. The mini griptillian is equally suited for hunting/camping as it is around the house or at the office. I have "better" and more expensive knives but this one remains my go to.
