Overview

The Griptilian is born of custom knifemaker Mel Pardue's passion for functional designs. You release the creature's ferocity with a thumb stud. At the very heart of the Griptilian is the exclusive AXIS locking mechanism. This modern marvel gives life to a cutting tool like you have never experienced before, especially in a lightweight folder. Rock-solid ambidextrous function is sure to tame the most die-hard of traditionalists. With the 556-1701, Benchmade welcomes in a beautifully upgraded Mini Griptilian combining precision machined titanium alongside wood and brass details. This limited edition is individually numbered and features CPM-20CV stainless steel. CPM-20CV is virtually identical in chemical composition to Benchmade's current M390 steel but is made in the USA by Niagara as opposed to Bohler, which is based Austria. It offers better edge retention but is not quite as tough to sharpen as M390.

A contemporary styled building complete with all of the modern equipment and amenities necessary to manufacture what has become recognized as a higher standard of specialty cutlery. Today, Benchmade Knife Company, Inc. manufactures knives for a loyal and ever growing following of knife users which includes law enforcement, emergency/rescue and military personnel.
