Rust. Wear. Grime. It's not your garage I'm talking about, it's your pocket knife. Ordinary knives hardly last past the first 50 jobs they perform. But a Benchmade knife...well, it isn't diamonds, but stainless steel that is truly for ever. And this beautiful Benchmade 551 SBKSN Griptilian Sand Color Handle Knife is no exception. When you need a real knife that won't fall prey to time, you need a Benchmade knife.
Just the right size, this knife is less than five inches long when closed, and just over eight inches when fully extended. The blade itself, made of strong and durable stainless steel (154CM Stainless Steel), is exactly 3.4 inches long and just .115 inches thick. The hardness of most blades is determined on the Rockwell scale. On this scale, a hardness below 56 will not hold its edge well, but a hardness above 60 may be too difficult to sharpen. With a hardness of 58-60, this knife is perfect, with an edge that will last and last, but can still be sharpened and honed.
The partially-serrated, modified drop-point combo edge is perfect for slicing, cutting, trimming - if you have a use, this knife has an answer. The AXIS locking device won't wear out - open, close, open, close, as many times as you want, your knife won't quit.
Weighing only 3.25 ounces, the handsome sand colored handle has grips so that you can take on any task without worrying about slipping. The reversible clip, crafted out of black stainless steel, is offset nicely against the natural-toned finish, and helps you keep your knife in your pocket or on your belt with ease. You don't want just another pocket knife - so buy a Benchmade 551 SBKSN Griptilian Sand Color Handle Knife so it can be your last pocket knife.

Blade locks up strong. I have used it...
Blade locks up strong. I have used it for things that a knife should and should not be used for (can opener, etc.) and it has never failed. Lost my first one and did everything I could to replace it as soon as possible. Almost felt naked without it. Quality product.
Why Choose Working Person? Let Our Customers Explain!
I wanted to let you know how pleased I was with the products and service I received from your company.
I had a short notice request to travel from New Orleans to the Northwest Territories in Canada to inspect an offshore facility out on the sea ice north of the arctic circle. You can't get clothes suitable for that area in New Orleans at any time, and certainly not in April. I called your order line on a Saturday, and your ordering department spent quite a bit of time with me making recommendations and checking to see if the gear was in stock. He made sure that the order was packed for a Monday overnight shipment and I had my clothing by Tuesday afternoon. I left New Orleans on Wednesday morning.
This was a very important project for our company and I want to thank you for your service. I also want to tell you that the great representative you had for your company. I've passed on your name to our organization for other folks that might have to make a trip up North.
Here are a couple of pictures of me in Canada out on the offshore ice. It was -22 C (-8 F) with a pretty good wind (wind chill -32 C / -26 F). The clothes I got from you all kept me warm throughout the 7 hours I spent outside doing my inspection. In fact, as you can see, I didn't even need to zip my jacket. It was a sunny day, which helped.
Finally, the gloves you see in the pictures are not the ones I ordered from you. Your gloves were fine, and I used them when I wasn't physically working, but the work I was doing required a leather glove for hand protection. I procured a pair of thinsulate leather work gloves in Inuvik that worked great and were a good balance between insulation, protection, and manual dexterity. I don't have them at work with me, but if you are interested I can look at the tag and send the brand information on to you.
