    I bought a custom one and had them put a sheeps foot blade with M4 Steel. LOVE IT!! Harder to sharpen but worth the extra effort.

    great intro to high end knives
    i got this knife as a birthday gift and i was super excited. i carried it for years until i got the barrage as an upgrade. the price for performance in my mind is unmatched and with the different blade shapes and other features that can be changed for your liking its great for all users. so i definitely would recommend this knife as a intro to not only Benchmade as a company but also a intro to higher end knives.

    Custom griptilian
    Had my recent grip customized the way I like it
    By Benchmade,s custom shop...they did a bangup job! Turned out to be roughly $15 more than if I,d done it myself with after market parts. Considering my warranty is unaffected this was a good call in my book,give their custom work some consideration.

    Carried Everyday for Years
    I highly recommend the Griptilian. My wife bought me this knife as a Christmas present about 3-4 years ago (feels like forever ago) and I've had it in my pocket every day since then. It's opened packages, cut rope, pried open all sorts of things it shouldn't have, broken down boxes, and even prepared kindling in a pinch. The only issue I've had with it is that the pocket clip screws back out over time and have to be tightened every couple of months.

    The blade has taken a beating and sharpens well and retains an edge very well. After years of touching it up, I'm considering sending it to Benchmade for a good professional sharpening but have been able to keep it up myself without any issues.

    154cm mini-grip
    I purchased a mini-griptilian a year and some months back, and I must say I am so happy I did. I'm hard on anything I buy, if I buy it, it's being out through the ringer. I can honestly say that if I leave the house without this knife, I feel naked.

    A week ago, I dropped her and I thought it was going to be over; I watched her, in slow-mo, fall about 6 feet to a smooth concrete floor while opened and tip headed straight down. Alas, no break at all. Love my baby.

    Quality Control
    I have a custom with G-10 scales (one tan & one green, all satin furnishings. Simply stunning). First, the only issue I’ve had with this knife is a QC issue; one of the spacers was noticeably loose. There was an obvious rattle to the knife when moving it around from the spacer. I immediately sent it back and it was resolved. Since then, I only have great things to say about this knife. I have L/XL hands and this is the perfect full-size pocket knife for me. It’s just large enough that it’s not a burden when I reach info my pocket for anything but my knife. It’s been close to a year now that I’ve carried this and I absolutely stand by this knife. For those new to Benchmade, you simply can’t beat the warranty and customer service. Absolute value.

    Very solid, quality knife
    I have an 154cm griptilian and its been going strong for two years. I've never had any issues with it, and I've used it(sometimes hard-use) on a daily basis. Its an awesome time tested design that Bencmade executed very well. The only con I can think of, is the sound of the plastic handles( they sound hollow when opening the knife) but its just a sound and its easy to get use to. The knife still feels very quality despite the plastic-like handle. Overall its a very solid choice!

    Time tested
    Received this knife in 2006 and it has been my EDC ever since. A few knives have been given to me over the years but I could never bring myself to carry them because they just don't compare. It is incredible how well the materials have held up through everyday use and especially how well the blade holds its edge. As much as I would love to to get another knife to carry daily, I don't know that I will ever need to because this Benchmade was clearly built to last.
