Benchmade Knives: Mini Griptilian 555 SBKHG Black USA-Made Knife
It’s been said that the only thing that separates humans from the rest of the animal kingdom is our ability to make and use tools. Simple human ingenuity is on display in the form of the Benchmade Mini Griptilian 555 SBKHG USA-Made Black Knife, an elegant and superior tool adapted to many uses.
Cutting tools have certainly evolved since the days of stone chips and sharpened animal bones. The Mini Griptilian knife combines the unsurpassed workmanship of Benchmade with a cutting-edge design and superior materials. With a locking blade crafted of 154CM grade stainless steel (58-61HRC for you hardness specialists out there), you know this is a sharp blade with “best all-around” qualities - namely good toughness and edge quality and excellent corrosion-resistance.
The blade style is a Hollowground Modified Sheepsfoot, with a curved spine and minimal belly. There’s no sharp point at the tip of the blade; this Benchmade tool is primarily for slicing and cutting. The combination blade includes a serrated area near the base that allows for cutting thicker materials, such as rope.
Opening and closing a folding knife can be difficult, depending on the design. The Benchmade accessory uses an ambidextrous functioning thumb hole opener, and it utilizes the patented AXIS mechanism, allowing safe, and dependable one-handed operation for opening, closing and locking the blade. The molded Valox handle provides a lightweight, comfortable grip with heat- and chemical-resistant properties.
The overall length of the pocket knife when closed is only 3.87 inches, and the blade measures 2.91 inches, making it an ideal all-purpose tool. Since the black clip is removable and reversible, you can mount it for clipping to your left or right pocket, in the tip-up position. No more digging through your loose change to find your work knife!
Sure, you can choose to carry around your grandpa’s old worn-out pocket knife. Or you can resort to stones and bones, like our ancestors. But why not own a work tool that was thousands of years in the making? Order the Benchmade Mini Griptilian 555 SBKHG American-Made Knife by placing it in your shopping cart, and show your pride in human progress!

I bought this knife about two months ago. I wanted something similar in size to my Buck "rush" pocket knife. I still carry my buck a few day a week but this knife (mini griptillian) feels great when in use and the blade is extremely sharp right out of the box. Anyone who wants a daily carry pocket knife with a clip will love this knife except you might want to bend the clip out a little as it tends to tear at your pants pocket because of the handle's grip pattern. Also the opening "hinge" is very well made.
