Benchmade Knives: USA-Made 553SBKOD Tanto Black/Olive Green Folding Knife
Your life has changed a lot since you were a kid. Back in the day, you were one bad dude - running with the fast crowd, drinking and staying out late, and carrying a big pocket knife wherever you went. Ah, whatever happened to being 11? Just kidding...but really, you have changed a lot over the years. It used to be that if you wanted something, you'd buy it. You had man stuff, and you felt like a man. Now that you've got kids, that means you probably have a car seat and plastic toys. Maybe it's time to buy yourself a little present. Order yourself a Benchmade American-Made 553SBKOD Olive Drab Combo Edge Folding Tanto Knife, and you'll soon remember what it feels like to be a guy.
This Benchmade knife has an olive handle and a Tanto blade. This sharp blade is 3.45 inches long and .115 inches thick. Forged from stainless steel (154CM), this combo edge knife is designed for all sorts of jobs: sharpen a stick for a make-shift tent peg, carve a whistle out of a twig, or cut up dinner and cook it over an open fire…the choice is yours! Folded, this olive green knife is 4.62 inches, and when it's open, it's an impressive 8.07 inches. It's not a teeny pen knife - it's a serious blade (the weight is 3.25 ounces).
Benchmade's American-made knives like this one have ambidextrous thumb studs, so they can be opened with either hand. And the AXIS locking mechanism ensures that when the folding gadget is open, it stays open, so it won't close up on your fingers. This will help you avoid any injuries. The blade has a sleek, black finish, and its hardness is 58-60HRC, so you also don't have to worry about it breaking off while you're using it. This long-lasting Benchmade accessory will provide plenty of cutting action for you.
The Valox handle is .64 inches thick and contains stainless steel liners. A reversible steel pocket clip on the handle gives you the option of clipping this black knife to your pocket or belt.
Your kids need a dad who acts like one. Teach them all the skills the men in your family passed down to you: how to camp, how to make your own shelter, and how to skin a squirrel. This Benchmade 553SBKOD Olive Green/Black Combo Edge Folding USA-Made Knife can help you do it all. Order yours today!

The Gripilin 553 Benchmade knife is a outstanding piece of engineering. The Axis lock has solved the problem of rapid deployment and rapid retrieval of the blade in an elegant and practical manner. The size is right for a large handed person and the pocket clip is strong yet discreet. The action is smooth , sure and predictable. The scales, however, do not rise to the level of excellence as the rest of the knife. To be fair, they would be just fine on any number of knives from other makers but rather than being a contributing factor in the Gripilion's over all remarkable design they are its one minor flaw. When you name a knife GRIP it had better be no less than GRIP. A common feeling plastic is a hard sell in this case no matter how many bumps they put on this Benchmade. This should be an easy fix for the folks at Benchmade. Nevertheless, what a life it would be if all things were made this well.
