When it comes to all-round functionality, you can’t beat the Griptillian®. 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).

Benchmade has upgraded Griptilian knives with premium CPM-S30V blade steel!

This Griptilian model is built with a black handle and a sheepsfoot blade with a black finish and partially serrated edge.

The Benchmade Griptilian is a no-nonsense daily carry knife that features strong and lightweight textured Noryl GTX handles. Double 420J stainless liners add strength and durability to the handle design. The AXIS lock mechanism makes the knife easy to open and easy to close for right and left handers. This model is outfitted with a sheepsfoot blade in a black finish with a serrated cutting edge and dual ambidextrous thumb studs. Item includes a reversible stainless steel pocket clip for left or right side tip-up carry.

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.

  • AXIS® A patented Benchmade exclusive, AXIS has been turning heads and winning fans ever since its introduction. A 100-percent ambidextrous design, AXIS gets its function from a small, hardened steel bar which rides forward and back in a slot machined into both steel liners. The bar extends to both sides of the knife, spanning the liners and positioned over the rear of the blade. It engages a ramped, tang portion of the knife blade when it is opened. Two omega style springs, one on each liner, give the locking bar it’s inertia to engage the knife tang, and as a result the tang is wedged solidly between a sizable stop pin and the AXIS bar itself.
