Benchmade Knives: Mini Griptilian Plain Edge Folding Knife 556
Tell a man he looks nice and he might say thanks. Tell a man his tools look nice and he might darn near hug you. We know you take a lot of pride in your equipment, which is why we know you'll appreciate the sleek design and compact power of Benchmade's 556 Mini-Griptilian Pardue Plain Edge Knife.
The blade is crafted with 154 CM stainless steel, a premium-grade metal known for its corrosion-resistance. Measuring almost three inches, this blade is big enough for the tough jobs but easy to manage. The drop-point blade style makes the tip of the blade extra strong and gives you a larger slicing area.
Equipped with an ambidextrous thumb-stud opener, this knife gives you easy access. Benchmades patented Axis locking mechanism keeps you in control with a secure system. The Axis liners are made with stainless steel for abrasion-resisting strength.
The black handle of the 556 is made with durable Noryl GTX. A textured grip makes the molded handle easy for you to manipulate. The Mini Griptillian comes with a clip for added convenience.
We're talking true tool pride here. The kind of gut-swelling emotion that can only be evoked by quality tools like this Benchmade. Your work bench will be surrounded by cat calls and second glances when your buddies get a glimpse of the 556 Mini-Griptilian Pardue Plain Edge Knife. This Benchmade is sleek and strong with the cutting power you need for a job well done.

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.
