Benchmde Large Griptilian with modified drop point blade and upgraded Putman Blue G10 scales. The original Glass-Filled Nylon handle has been professionally removed us and Putman 3D textured G10 handle scales installed. These scales have a softer feel with much better grip and transform the knife into another class. Integrated lanyard hole is retained, as well as, a single position mounting point for the benchmade pocket clip for tip up right-handed carry.
The 551 Griptilian comes with a saber ground, satin finished 154CM blade with excellent cutting geometry and an easy to operate thumb stud opener. The Benchmade Axis Lock, a rolling bar riding along a slot in two machined stainless steel liners, provides a rock solid lock up. The Griptilian family is the backbone of the Blue Box line and always a popular choice.
The Putman scales are made by Allen Putman and feature a Jens Anso style 3D pattern. These precision made scales are milled out to accept the original stainless steel liners and includes a notched G10 backspacer.
