Brand new for 2019 is the Benchmade upgraded Mini Griptilians. Benchmade took the standard Mini Griptilians that have been oh so popular for years and updated it for today's popular steels. The Handle and liners are the same along with the AXIS lock. Why change what works...right? What Benchmade did do is to upgrade the blades all to CPM-S30V form the 154CM. This gives you better edge retention and sharpness. This is a much needed upgrade and is well received.
The Mini Griptilians come in three different blade styles. The 556 drop point, the 557 tanto point and the 555 in a flat grind sheepsfoot with thumb hole instead of thumb studs.
This 556BK-S30V has a black blade and black colored handles.
|Blade Style:||Drop Point|

Great knife at a reasonable price. You can’t go wrong with choosing a Mini Grip as your edc/pocket/work knife.
Knife slips in and out of your pocket with ease. Blade has no side to side or up and down blade play. Blade centering wasn’t perfect but wasn’t terrible either. Action is smooth and blade deploys with authority with a flick of your thumb.
Would highly recommend
The black on black is my favorite, it is awesome looking.
