When it comes to all-round functionality, you can’t beat the Griptilian. There are more shapes, sizes and colors available in the Griptilian than any other product family from Benchmade. Super-strong Axis Lock for right- or left-handed use, a terrific and faithful every day carry in two sizes: standard Griptilian (blade length 8.8cm, weight 107-118g) and MiniGriptilian (blade length 7.4cm, weight 76-82g). NEW for 2019 – Now featuring CPM-S30V Premium Stainless Blade Steel, with an excellent balance of corrosion resistance, strength and edge qualities. Composition: Carbon 1.45%, Chromium 14.00%, Vanadium 4.00%, Molybdenum 2.00%. Vanadium carbides give the steel a very refined and homogenous grain, further improving the sharpness and toughness, while remaining relatively easy to maintain an edge.
