Rated 2 out of 5 by from Sharp but Brittle Blade Light weight and fits my hand perfectly. It is very sharp out of the box and stayed that way with "normal use". The action is silky smooth and a simple push of the stud opens the knife completely. There is no point of having a spring assist on this knife and unfortunately there is no point on my knife either. It broke off and I can't even remember when. I probably dropped it. I was hoping that the CPM-20CV steel would be tougher than the S30 that has chipped on me in the past, but apparently not. I realize that sharpness and durability are at opposite ends of the spectrum but at this price it is hard to accept a broken point unless I abused the product.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Top notch. Best mass produced knives. Pricey but worth the money. Top build quality and materials. Lightweight and the ergos are spot on.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great knife This is a relatively recent upgrade on the classic Benchmade Mini-Griptilian. Tougher G-10 scales/grips with a better feel in the hand and a modern cpm stainless blade. Also has a spring assisted axis lock, so blade locks automatically when opened. Razor sharp, the blade is just under 3", so it should be legal in sensible jurisdictions

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Costly Good I purchased this knife 2 weeks ago to replace a Gerber that jumped out of my tactical pants pocket. After looking at my choices on-line I went to REI to buy a Benchmade 556S Mini Griptilian Serrated knife @ $95.00. This was about $40.00 more than I had ever paid for a knife before. Upon arrival I found out that the web site was not up to date and they did not have one in stock. The associate, that was assisting me, went out back to check stock for me and brought out what we both thought was the same knife only in a different color. I checked it out and it did not have a serrated edge, but I was fine with that. I advised them that I would take it and he boxed it up. As he completed doing this I confirmed that the price was $95.00. To my amazement he said "no it is $175.00." I was shocked, but in a bind because I was leaving the next morning to go on vacation and I needed a knife. I decided to go all in and get it. I have never bought a knife, that out of the box, was so darn sharp. I mean incredibly sharp. The knife fits my hand well and I like the AXIS locking system. I was also quick to change there belt clip to the opposite side of the knife (a great feature) as it was not coming out in the right position for me. I am certain that this knife will last me a long time and be great as my EDC (providing I don't lose it). I have given this rating of 4 stars only because I do not feel that there is enough difference between the one that I went in for and the one I bought to warrant an $80.00 difference in pricing.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great quality knife for the price Beautiful styled knife. Very functional. Comfortable in hand or pocket. Smooth opening. Good value for the money.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Great knife Great knife with great materials. I decided to opt for the larger version because the deep carry pocket clip on this model created a really bad hotspot on my hand.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent knife This is my third Benchmade over the years and without a doubt my favorite. Knife comes razor sharp out of the box and maintains a great edge. Highly recommend to anyone looking to get their money's worth out of a tool.
