Benchmade Knives: Mini-Griptilian Combo Edge Tanto Folding Knife 557 SBKOD
It's a dark summer night -- just after dusk. Lit by the soft light of the moon, sitting in your favorite armchair, you run your fingers along the grip-textured molded handle of your new Benchmade 557 SBKOD Mini-Griptilian Folding Knife.
Admiring its 0.100" thick, 2.91" long, stainless steel Combo Edge blade -- you're suddenly startled. A harsh shriek coming from the distance jolts you into an alerted state. Ready to protect yourself from the unknown, you implement your knife's premium AXIS function, which is a small, hardenened steel bar that rides forward and back in a slot machined into both steel liners, so that a ramped, tang portion of the knife is showing when the blade opens.
Your right hand is sweating. Careful not to flub with slippery hands, you switch hands and mentally commend the knife's ambidextrous thumb-hole opener and dual thumb-stud, which makes this knife a great choice for righties and lefties alike. (Unlike those frustrating scissors they'd hand out in kindergarten, you think to yourself, but now is not the time to hold a grudge.)
You hear it again -- another scream. Certainly this isn't your imagination. Your help is needed! You begin to run towards the sound. Surely you're ready to tackle anything: wild animals, downed trees, a damsel in distress. You feel confident because your knife has a 154CM blade with 58-60HRC hardness.
Finally, breathless, you come upon the source of the screaming -- it's just around the corner! You tighten your grip on the black Valox handle scales and you show yourself. Your heart drops and your determined face sinks to a confused frown when you notice it's just your neighbor, Mrs. Jones who is screaming in frustration because she can't get her UPS package open! Well, while you're here, you might as well help her out with your trusty knife. You hum the Indiana Jones theme song to yourself as you sheepishly make your way back home, dreaming of your next adventure with your Benchmade 557 SBKOD Mini-Griptilian Folding Knife.
