Benchmade Knives: Mini-Griptilian Tanto Folding Knife 557 SBK
The Benchmade Mini-Griptilian Tanto Pardue-Design Knife 557 SBK is designed to be used, not kept in a knife case and admired. It's not flashy. It's handle isn't made of semi-precious stone or covered with scrimshaw, but then again, why should it be? If you're always using it, always covering the handle with your hand, all you care about it comfort and ease of use. This knife delivers that and more.
The sharp, shining blade (2.91 inches long) is crafted with American-made 154CM stainless steel. This steel resists corrosion and holds its shape, meaning you spend less time sharpening it. The knife's 0.100-inch thick blade has a hardness of 58-60 on the HRC scale, meaning it will hold its edge well (even with frequent use). An AXIS-locking mechanism holds the Tanto-style blade securely in place. Inside, double 410 stainless steel liners add additional sturdiness to the knife's construction. The molded, easy-grip handle has black Valox scales. This pocketknife weighs in at a light 2.67 ounces overall.
The ambidextrous, dual thumb-stud opener is easy to use with either hand. Fully opened, this Benchmade 557SBK Mini-Griptilian Tanto Pardue Design Knife is 6.78 inches in length (3.87 inches when folded). The ComboEdge blade lets you use this tool for all your cutting tasks.
A black reversible, tip-up clip allows you to attach your knife easily to your pants, so you can find it quickly. A lanyard hole toward the back of the handle allows you to choose to tie the knife to you or your work area so it won't get lost.
With one of the best one-handed open, lock-and-unlock designs this side of a switch blade, the Benchmade Mini-Griptilian Tanto Pardue-Design Knife 557 SBK is a great multi-purpose knife. Whether you need it for work, play or a combination of the two, you'll be happy with its sharp edge and sturdy construction.

Smooth Benchmade Knife!...
My family has always believed that a man needs a good knife, and this sure is a great knife. My wife bought it for me years ago, and it's still going strong! (save for a bit of dulling, but the sharpener took care of that!). As a lefty, it's usually difficult for me to find a good knife. This one is sharp, opens smooth, locks tight, and has saved me quite a bit over the years--plus it's a great size! I carry my Griptilian with me at all times, as it's pretty unintrusive, but it absolutely isn't too small to do work when needed.

I wanted to take a moment to say thanks for your service! The jeans I purchased for my wife are great, they fit and look good. I also purchased a hooded sweatshirt for her, though unfortunately, it was to large. I have since filled out an exchange form and have dropped off the large sweatshirt at UPS... You have met all my expectations by offering me an exchange on a garment that I ordered wrong...
