The Griptilian is a pillar of Benchmade's lineup, a top seller for its ambidextrous design, comfortable ergonomics, and reliable performance. The 551-1 has upped the ante with upgrades across the board. The scales are gray G-10 with a blue accent layer, and the finish and shaping gives the knife a great feel. The blade has been upgraded to CPM-20CV which offers incredible edge holding. Thanks to Benchmade's AXIS Lock, one-handed opening and closing quickly becomes second-nature and makes it effortless to deploy. The knife comes with a reversible deep-carry pocket clip.

    I highly recommend this knife to anyone that wants the perfect knife. The blade is strong and sharp, fits great in the hand, also the design is remarkable. It cannot get better that that.

    ...perfect...can't describe it any better.. I sharpened and mirror polished the edge to a 'razor' sharpness...It was razor sharp from factory, just me.....perfect center ... very smooth after pivot Grip ever...solid feel...color is darker than pictured...more like a 'battleship gray' and blue is a dark 'peacock'...barrel spacers are bright blue anodized just have to see and try won't be disappointed...promise....
