For me, it was a toss up between this knife and the mini griptilian (also from benchmade), both knives are made of 440C Stainless Steel/ 58-60 HRC, both uses the Axis locking mechanism, ambidextrous thumb stud, etc. The biggest difference for me, besides the shape of the blade, was the handle. While both are made of noryl resin, the mini presidio has a slightly beefier, more chiseled handle, while the griptilian has a curvier, smaller, more streamlined contour. In the end, I went with the Mini Presidio because the slightly fatter handle felt better, and more secure in my hand. A matter of preference, really.
