I have purchased 2 of these, both are phenomenal. I have the mini griptillian and a full size. Both are razor sharp and they can take a beating. It goes with me on my Tank and gets abused regularly still has a sharp edge. The griptillian is a great EDC knife that will take the most extreme punishment that you can throw at it. Most everyone in my company has some form of benchmade, and this one seems to be able to take the greatest beating of all of them.

I needed an EDC that wasn't bulky, didn't flop around, was easy to open, and could be cleaned thoroughly with out "stuff" stuck in a bunch of joints/hinges/cracks. The mini-grip fit the criteria, to perfection. As an owner of several Benchmade products, the quality met my expectations. My local knife shop fixes, cleans, sharpens, and fine-tunes Benchmade products for free. Perfect product to meet my EDC needs plus superb customer service - such a rare find!

All my life I have loved and purchased knives, however I thought that spending anything over $50.00 for one was crazy. Then I began to research Benchmade, and boy was I wrong. The first Benchmade I bought was the 570 (a beast of a knife!) and I love it! But I wanted something a little lighter with a smaller price point, and the Griptilian fit the bill. Now first of all let’s talk about the design and quality. The shape of the knife fits perfectly in the hand and looks great, the blade also looks great and is perfect for light to medium duty everyday tasks. The quality is straight up unbelievable, the materials are very high quality and durable, and so are the mechanisms inside, to enforce this I’ll also add that I have been flipping this knife open and closed all day everyday since I got it wondering if it would result in any blade play, but none at all!!! But beyond this amazing knife is the also amazing company, I couldn’t find something I was wanting on there website so I E-mailed them and they replied remarkably fast for a large company. They told me that they would be glad to help me with what I wanted and gave me there customer service phone number, and it kept getting better, the woman who answered the phone was super friendly, almost to the point that I thought she was an old friend! In the end they were able to get the item I wanted with no trouble at all! This is why I will always choose to spend a little more money for a better product that will last a lifetime, with the customer support to back it up!

OH the many. As in oh the many Griptilians knifes I own.
I do not remember when I purchased my first mini grip, but I know I still own it. I know my second one is in the hands of a thief. Since think I have purchased multiple mini grips. They have become my regular EDC. I have one in my wife's car, my car, my wife's purse, my day carry bag, and almost always in my pocket. About 3 years ago I purchased the full size Grip, and I also love that knife. I think either model are some of the best knife models every made, and if all is good in the world Benchmade will always make them. I plan on passing mine down to my children. Without question a purchase any human who wants, or needs a knife should own a Grip.
Thanks BM.

I have reasearched, read reviews and watched videos on the Griptillian but never bought one for myself. I did purchase one for my wife but just never pulled the trigger for myself. Made the mistake of going to the custom shop and a couple of days ago ordered my grip. Sheepsfoot blade, forest green scales with vertical stippling, all black screws and axis lock along with silver deep carry pocket clip. My baby arrived today, talk about quick service. I couldn’t be more pleased. The centering is perfect, the modified sheepsfoot blade is sharp, real sharp. The G10 scales with the vertical stippling feels real good and more substantial than the plastic ones by a lot.did a quick cardboard cut and the blade just zipped through the package I opened. Push cut,paper with ease. The action is a bit stiff in closing but that’s fine with me.i ordered the knife in one of my favorite steels M4, a little mineral oil keeps it rust free.. I live near saltwater and have had no problem with M4 rusting, just take some precautions.my fairly new Bugout just got some bad news, it’s getting relegated to deep pocket carry while the Grip rides in the honor seat of my right front jeans pocket.This is my first Benchmade ordered from the custom shop and they hit it out of the ballpark.. the knives cost a bit more but getting to have a say in the materials used and the attention to detail makes the purchase well worth the extra bucks. Good Job Benchmade I am lovin my Grip and highly recommend the custom shop and did I tell you I am lovin my Grip.

I have looked, researched, read reviews on the Griptillian, bought o e for my wife but just never seemed able to pull the trigger for some reason. Well the itch got me a couple of days ago and I explored the custom shop.. should have stayed away. Order placed: forest green, all black screws and axis lock, satin stainless steel barrel spacers and silver deep pocket carry clip

I purchased a mini griptillian in 2004 for $90. Still use it every day at work. Opening boxes and cutting plastic.

You know a knife is good when you see people reviewing it after YEARS of use! I’ve had my trusty Griptilian for about 5 years now. It’s my right-hand man! I carry it with me religiously every day, and it just LASTS! I remember it being shave-sharp out of the box. But it’s the edge retention that separates quality knives from the junk. I have never needed to hone this knife, but I occassionally give it a few passes on a kitchen steel. I actually have a relationship with this knife. And I can certainly say I would be in literal tears if I ever parted with or lost it. I’m so tempted to purchase another Benchmade, but I actually feel like that would be cheating on my loyal Griptilian.... lol!

A knife may be a mariner's most important tool. As a mariner myself, I can say that the Griptilian performs well. Although I have only had my Griptilian for just over a year, thus far it has shown no signs of giving up. Seeing the other reviews on here definitely reinforces that idea as well. This knife has no problem cutting through 3-inch hawser, canvas, fabric, etc. and has gotten me out of a few dicey situations. Price isn't too bad either.

Hey! I have a Griptilian 556, 154cm. First off, I would like to say that this is by far the highest quality knife I have ever owned without a single doubt in my mind. I am a rock climber and I spend weeks at a time in the wilderness. Hiking, trail running, climbing, etc. I am also a collision repair technician and fix/build cars for a living. My knife is a tool. I am the kind of person who wants to be absolutely sure that I am able to depend on something 100% in any and every situation (atc, harness, ropes, carabiners, belay, etc). I wake up every morning and get dressed as anyone else does. Phone, wallet, knife. These items leave the house with me every time no matter what. I use a knife for everything you could possible imagine and probably a few things you couldn’t imagine. I feel secure and safe and capable with this knife on my hip. I trust the quality and craftsmanship with my life if it came down to it. Benchmade crafts a knife with precision, care, and every little detail that will make you appreciate it every time you flip open the blade. It is sharp as hell, smooth as the wind, sturdy as fixed blade and just looks bad ass. Thank you Bench Made, for providing such a high quality product that I know I will always be able to rely on. It is perfection in a knife.
