I bought this knife about a month ago and I will never buy any other brand of knife besides Benchmade.

Carl of Des Moines, IA - April, 22 2011:

Just love my new Griptilian. The lock is smooth as butter and locks up nice and tight with no play. The knife holds an edge better than any of the other knives I've owned and is well worth the price. Thanks again Benchmade!

Nick of Eagle, ID - April, 25 2011:

Can't go wrong with this knife. Solid form tip to clip!

Matt of Grand Junction, CO - April, 28 2011:

One of the smoothest knives I have ever owned. Very user friendly also.

CJ of Orem, UT - April, 29 2011:

The Griptilian was one knife that I have wanted for a long time and finaly got it and love it. Opening and closing it is very smooth and easy. The handle is made of plastic or something but seems like it will last forever.

Jonathan of Chattanooga, TN - May, 05 2011:

The Griptillian is one of my favorite knives. Smooth action, locks up tight, holds an edge really well. Great knife!

Jeremy of Southaven, MS - May, 06 2011:

Very well made knife, high quality construction and good steel. Holds a edge very well, if you want a good quality knife you cant beat a benchmade

CJ of Tucson, AZ - May, 07 2011:

Good low priced benchmade knife. Even at the low price still uses the 154CM steel which is great at holding an edge.

Kevin of Anchor, AK - July, 09 2011:

Love this knife. The 1/2 serration is awesome. Flips open and close real smooth. Like the belt clip and the grip is really good. Big enough for my hand, and real sharp

Dan of Logan, UT - September, 26 2012:

Great knife has a smooth action and holds an edge well.
