Benchmade Mini Griptilian Review
Today we're going to talk about the Benchmade Mini Griptilian.
Another great folding knife for both left and right-handed people.
Maybe some of you already know that the price of mini griptilian is a little bit high, we still consider this knife as one of the best pocket knife out there for left-handers.
This knife will cost you double than a regular thirty to fifty dollar price knives. But the price is kinda reasonable for its performance because it is very popular for left and right-handed people.
Mini Griptilian Features
The overall length is 6.78 inches with the blade length being 2.91 inches. Made with 154CM (58-61 HRC) steel, most of Benchmade knives are using (if not all) this type of steel and weighs 2.56 ounces only. It's got a modified drop point with a flat grind and black finish.
Their handle grips into your hand really well and it got stainless steel liners and axis lock mechanism which they use on a lot of their knives, making them more ambidextrous.
The blade seats really nice, there's no play at all and also has a bulletproof lock up. It has benchmade logo and the designed by Mel Pardue on the other side. The ambidextrous thumb stud is cool if you want to use the knife on either of your hands. The pocket clip can also be switched on between sides.
The ridges and gimping on the back of the grip & back of the blade gives more grip when the blade is in action.
How Axis Lock Works
The axis lock works by sliding over a groove in the blade. You will notice as it opens, it slides over and locks it into place.
Wrapping it up
With all those features above, the selling point of Benchmade mini griptilian is its ambidextrous capability and very grippy handle. The ridges and linings all over the knife will make it comfortable in your hand.
This really makes the mini griptilian as one of the popular everyday carry knives (EDC). It's got a squared-off spine, a nice deep pocket clip, and a hole for a lanyard.
