Griptilian® Family

Product Review (submitted on March 17, 2019):
I only began buying Benchmade in the last few years, but now I have 16 of them. I have several other models, but the Mini-Griptilian dominates my collection. I have one in D2, S30v and M4 and a couple in 154cm. For the price, the Griptilian line represents the best value in a knife with modern upgraded steel. For the size, the Mini Grip is perfect for most states & cities and great for EDC. At under 3" blade, I can even get away with carrying one in my business office on casual days. For heavier tasks like camping I often opt for the full size. My only gripe is that I have designed and bought 2 custom Mini Grips from this site and I wish they would begin with a more accurate starting price. At this moment it starts at $140 for base model though it seems $115 is the msrp. I did still design and purchase 2 Mini Grips for about $200 each because they were special gifts, but it'd be nicer at $170 each. So, go buy one of the many now on sale since they re-launched with new steel, or design your own. You can't go wrong.
