    Benchmade: for life

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times

    Everything you touch with this knife turns to butter. extremely happy with this purchase. extremely lightweight and the blade is thicker than a quarter. bit on the bigger side for everyday carry. bought it primarily for field work in the mountains. excited to put it to the test this summer

    Excellent Pocket Knife

      This is an excellent pocket knife for utility, work, convenience. It opens rapidly for a folder. The cutting surface is very sharp. The construction is strong, tough, and just tight enough that there's no wiggle or shimmy when working the blade.

      My only complaint would be the necessary presence of the clip. This is nothing unique to the Benchmade Griptilian Tanto Knife. Any pocket clip is going to diminish the integrity of the hand grip one can maintain on a knife.

      I regularly commute by bicycle and I haven't found the folded length to be any sort of problem while riding.

      Does it come with a blade? Wouldn't it...

      Does it come with a blade? Wouldn't it be nice to know what size blade it comes with? Asking too much, I suppose. Seems 90% of the listings and reviews I see fail to specify the blade thickness and length. Call me picky, but I would like to know.
