Benchmade Griptilian with satin plain edge modified drop point blade with dual thumb studs and Orange Putman 3D G10 scales. The original Glass-Filled Nylon handle has been professionally removed and the Putman G10 handle scales installed by us. The pattern on the scales is an Anso style which gives better grip and a softer feel which transforms the knife into another class. Integrated lanyard hole is retained, as well as, a single position tip up right-handed carry mount for the Benchmade pocket clip.
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.**
