The Griptilian from Benchmade has a grip textured molded handle with an ambidextrous thumb stud opener. The blade material is 154CM stainless steel. Known for its best all-around qualities, it offers great corrosion resistance with good toughness and edge quality.The blade shape is a modified drop point that is partially serrated. The drop-point format lowers the point for control but adds strength to the tip. Usually coupled with plenty of belly for slicing, this format is often used for hunting knives.

A great feature of the Griptilian is its AXIS locking mechanism. 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. The reversible Tip Up clip allows for easy carry and access whenever you need it as it can be hooked on your belt, in you pocket or on your gear. The Griptilian is also another of Benchmades Blue Class knives. Blue Class represents the heart of everything that is Benchmade. These USA made products are designed and built for the individual who appreciates the difference that a high-quality cutting tool can make.
