I bought the this plain edge Mini-Griptilian as a birthday gift for my son. He is tickled with it, so I can't fault it. I did try opening it a couple of times, and was not disappointed with the slick action and lockup of the Axis mechanism. This knife is so quick and easy to open that an automatic or assisted mechanism is really not necessary. The blade is sharp out of the box, usually the case with a new Benchmade.
You don't have to spend this much to get a serviceable EDC knife, but the quality of a Benchmade knife is evident. One of life's small pleasures is to be able to perform everyday tasks with a tool so nicely crafted.

I have one of these and use it everyday as a box opener and light utility type use. It is an extremely well made knife with a wide range of uses. It is highly durable with a razor sharp blade that holds it's edge even when abused. The grip is very comfortable and has a locking system that you can trust will not let the blade close on your fingers. An all around outstanding everyday carry knife that I highly recommend.
