The Benchmade 555-1 Mini Griptilian Gray G10 and CPM-20CV model is an evolution of the original Mini Grip utilizing features known and revered in the Benchmade line-up, this Mini Grip has it all - plus some. Upgraded G10 handles and a highly wear resistant CPM-20CV steel blade are just a few additions to the tried and true variant. Perfectly sized for everyday carry with discreet deep carry clip. Brand new directly from Benchmade Knives.
The Blade: Composed of CPM20CV, the blade has been ground to a sheepsfoot with plain edge and left uncoated for a working finish. Excellent edge retention, toughness and corrosion resistance are the stand-outs of this steel. Round hole allows for deployment of the blade in quick fashion and the Axis lock holds it firmly in place when opened.
The Handle: Gray G10 boasts the recognizable diamond textured grip pattern with accenting blue G10 liners. Impervious to moisture and stable in extreme climate changes, G10 is an ideal choice for a hard use carry knife. Partial stainless steel liners are found beneath the G10 and house the Benchmade patented Axis Lock mechanism. The Axis Lock can be used comfortably with either hand making this knife fully ambidextrous.
Black coated stainless steel deep carry pocket clip attached for tip up carry. Reversible for right or left hand use.
