Benchmade 551 Griptilian Drop-Point Knife:
Take the Benchmade 551 Griptilian Drop-Point Knife for your next adventure trip. This knife boasts the unmatched function of AXIS combined with the simplicity of a molded handle design. The AXIS Locking Mechanism is a patented Benchmade exclusive, AXIS has been turning heads and winning fans ever since its introduction. A 100% ambidextrous design, AXIS gets its function from a small, hardened steel bar that rides forward and back in a slot machined into both steel liners. The bar extends to both sides of the knife, spans the liners and is positioned over the rear of the blade. It engages a ramped tang portion of the knife blade when it is opened. Two omega-style springs, one on each liner, give the locking bar its inertia to engage the knife tang. As a result, the tang is wedged solidly between a sizable stop pin and the AXIS bar itself.
It comes with black handle made of Noryl GTX, a glass-filled nylon with stainless steel liners. The ambidextrous blade is keenly unleashed with a simple push of the thumb-stud openers. The sturdy blade of this knife is made with highly corrosion resistant 154CM stainless steel for added strength and durability. The drop-point tip straight edge blade measures 3.45 (8.76 cm). The knives overall length is 8.07 (20.5 cm), with a folded length of 4.62 (11.73 cm), handle thickness of 0.64 (1.63 cm), and blade thickness of 0.115 (0.29 cm). The knife weighs 3.88 oz. (110 g). The reversible pocket clip makes it easy to store and carry along. You can simply clip it on your pocket or belt, and you are good to go.
