Product Review (submitted on July 24, 2016):
Decided to purchase a new EDC and the reputation of the Griptilian sealed it for me. The blade is clearly top quality and looks like it will be serviceable. I'm still getting used to the Axis system. My only concern is how effectively it will work in an outdoor environment where dirt might get in the Axis mechanism. But my big issue is with the nylon grip. It is awful, feels like cheap plastic and Benchmade should not be selling knives of this cost with such pathetic materials. I've only had the knife for 3 days and have already ordered replacement grips from another manufacturer.
