Rust. Wear. Grime. It's not your garage I'm talking about, it's your pocket knife. Ordinary knives hardly last past the first 50 jobs they perform. But a Benchmade knife...well, it isn't diamonds, but stainless steel that is truly for ever. And this beautiful Benchmade 551 SBKSN Griptilian Sand Color Handle Knife is no exception. When you need a real knife that won't fall prey to time, you need a Benchmade knife.
Just the right size, this knife is less than five inches long when closed, and just over eight inches when fully extended. The blade itself, made of strong and durable stainless steel (154CM Stainless Steel), is exactly 3.4 inches long and just .115 inches thick. The hardness of most blades is determined on the Rockwell scale. On this scale, a hardness below 56 will not hold its edge well, but a hardness above 60 may be too difficult to sharpen. With a hardness of 58-60, this knife is perfect, with an edge that will last and last, but can still be sharpened and honed.
The partially-serrated, modified drop-point combo edge is perfect for slicing, cutting, trimming - if you have a use, this knife has an answer. The AXIS locking device won't wear out - open, close, open, close, as many times as you want, your knife won't quit.
Weighing only 3.25 ounces, the handsome sand colored handle has grips so that you can take on any task without worrying about slipping. The reversible clip, crafted out of black stainless steel, is offset nicely against the natural-toned finish, and helps you keep your knife in your pocket or on your belt with ease. You don't want just another pocket knife - so buy a Benchmade 551 SBKSN Griptilian Sand Color Handle Knife so it can be your last pocket knife.

Blade locks up strong. I have used it...
Blade locks up strong. I have used it for things that a knife should and should not be used for (can opener, etc.) and it has never failed. Lost my first one and did everything I could to replace it as soon as possible. Almost felt naked without it. Quality product.
