Ratings and Reviews
I’m totally impressed and amazed at how quickly my order got here from some 2,000 miles away! My order arrived well protected as well! Such a great experience!!
Fits great in the hand, looks great and light. Centering is a little off now but it still works like butter.
My First Benchmade knife
Very nice small pocket knife. Love the sheepsfoot blade. Very sharp S30v steel. Love the OD green handle. I carry it along with my Hinderer XM-18 so. It’s not lonely. My opinion is one knife for defense or rescue and 2nd for boxes . rope Etc.
I just received the mini Grip. and it is perfect. I asked the DLT staff to please make sure it is "as perfect as it could be". This beauty is a present for a dear friend on his 80th birthday and after taking the knife out of the bag I am sure it will not disappoint. Thank you guys for going above and beyond, excellent customer service.
Perfect fit, function, and look!
These scales provide an option for a nice G10 setup with a lot more grippiness compared with the factory grey G10 that comes with the upgraded steel models. Blue G10 is probably my all time favorite knife handle material, so I was happy to find that Blade HQ had these! The install was pretty straightforward, although I did struggle a little bit getting the pivot and washers back… read more in place (this is more an issue of the knife design itself than the scales).
This is an exceptional knife. It feels solid in the hand, there is a good weight to the knife. I was surprised, but also happy that the g10 scales are darker than what it appears on the screen. Benchmade often has criticisms of manufacturer QC issues, but in the knife I got there was no blade play, the blade was centered, and the grind was good (and very sharp). I chose the… read more knife because I was looking for a smaller edc that will fit in my pocket, and it fulfills that role. There was a little bit of a break in time. After a week or so I added some oil to the axis lock mechanism + pivot and it made a big difference. It was not cheap, but it is a fun little edc that feels like a quality knife.
Great experience with DLT. Ordered
Great experience with DLT. Ordered a fantastic Mini Griptilian with engraving. Order was correctly and quickly completed. Another great Benchmade. Fit, finish and that wonderful fidgetty action are superb. Nearly perfect grind, too.
Excellent Small Knife
I love this knife! I have relatively small hands so it was a perfect fit but did not lack in any field of utility. Excellent place to start for a Benchmade collection as this was my first Benchmade.
I carried this knife exclusively as my 'every day carry' for 8+ years. It is the perfect size and weight for the majority of tasks presented on an average day. The blade finish has held up extremely well, and the locking mechanism has never failed me. I love this knife and would highly recommend it to anyone. I recently passed it down to my son, now I need to get another one!
Great EDC knife and excellent
Great EDC knife and excellent service from DLT
Knife So Nice You Buy It Twice
This is such a great knife! I have been hesitant to buy a Benchmade for a long time, but these upgraded materials, a spydie-hole on the sheepsfoot version, and DLT's superior customer experience (YAY they take PayPal!) made this a no brainer. This is a knife so nice you buy it twice!
Excellent little knife. It is
Excellent little knife. It is much more sturdy feeling than you might think and the 20cv steel is one of the best available. Makes for a real tough little knife in a small package.
The perfect benchmade. Feels quality. Fits your hand perfect. Perfect size. I loved everything about this knife. Already has a deep pocket clip. The spydie hole is perfect and liked it much better than the stud. Never had to sharpen it but insanely sharp out of the box
This knife is great but there are some minor problems. First problem was the pocket clip, it has the slightest of play. Second problem was I found the steel to chip a little too easy but a micro bevel should fix that.
Small comfortable in hand just my perfect edc.
I purchased a sheepsfoot style mini grip as soon as they were originally released. Loved the knife and carried it daily until about a year ago when I upgraded to a Ritter grip. When I saw the latest grips with G10 scales and upgraded steel I had to have one, especially when I saw I could get the sheepsfoot style again. It brings back good memories of how pleased I was with the original.… read more This one is beautiful, with the upgraded scales and the blue liners. Fit and finish is perfect, blade is centered and I like the deep carry clip.
it is my permanent EDC as of now perfect...i have many others stiles and brands but for my life stile this knife is perfection...
New Spin on the Mini-Grip: works well for me
Have an earlier Ritter version of the Mini-Griptilian with orange plastic/composite scales, deep chord drop point blade and S30V, with thumb studs. (Did send that to Benchmade to correct centering and blade play issues.). After discussing that issue with DLT folks, took a chance on the new 555-1 with 20CV steel, G-10 scales, modified sheepsfoot profile and Spydie-like thumb hole…
for deployment. The 555-1 came nicely centered, had no blade play, sharp out of the box and feels stronger/stiffer than the older FRN scaled mini.
Nothing not to like for me- same good egos, just under 3" blade, deep carry clip (squeezed it a tiny bit in a vise and reinstalled to tighten it up the pressure when clipped to pocket), very convenient EDC. LOVE the thumb hole for deployment. 2.9 oz.
Kudos once again to Jason and DLT for their guidance and fine customer service.
I love this knife. The fit, finish, and function are, IMO, as good as it gets in this price range. Worth every penny. 5 stars.
Excellent Update to Classic Design
The new G10 edition of the Griptilian is a truly great update to this classic Benchmade Mel Pardue design. The G10 adds a quality feel and quality durability. The new blade steel, CPM-20CV, is a major upgrade from the previous 154CM. The Benchmade color scheme is cool and the blue posts really pop in the open construction. If you've been waiting to get a Griptilian, now is the time.
Ordered knife at good price & received it in a very timely fashion. Will go to site from now on for further purchases. Very pleased!
