Benchmde Griptilian modified drop point plain edge blade with dual thumb studs and Lime Green Putman 3D G10 scales. The original Glass-Filled Nylon handle have been professionally replaced with Putman G10 handle scales by us. Anso style 3D pattern texture feels great in the hand with enhanced grip. Integrated lanyard hole is retained, as well as, a single position tip up right-handed carry mount for the Benchmade pocket clip. The excellent fit and finish makes an already great knife even better.
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 Benchmade Blue Box line.
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.
**Dis-assembly of the knife is required to attach the Putman G10 handle scales voiding the factory warranty.**
