Made In USA

Benchmade's 556 Mini-Griptilian Knife is a versatile, dependable drop-point knife designed for fast one-hand operation and big-knife performance from grip to tip.

One of Benchmade’s most popular little folders, for a lot good reasons. Just flick the thumb stud with either hand to open the Mini Griptilian’s remarkably strong, 3” drop-point blade. Benchmade’s patented AXIS® system will lock it securely in place until you slide the button on the handle to release it. Less than 3” long when closed and weighing about 2 1/2 oz, this comfortable, lightweight, ambidextrous knife is always ready for tough duty. The Mini-Griptilian provides exceptional speed and tactical-level performance for a wide range of applications. Its modified drop-point blade is crafted from premium-grade American made 154CM stainless steel to deliver exceptional strength, great corrosion resistance, and dependable performance for a wide range of applications. Valox-reinforced resin handles provide a secure, comfortable grip and have 420J Stainless Steel liners for added strength and rigidity. A reversible steel pocket clip lets you carry the knife on whichever side you prefer. Like all Benchmade Blue Class knives, the Griptilian was designed and built for the individual who appreciates the difference that a high-quality cutting tool can make. These premium quality US-made products represent the heart of everything that is Benchmade. Choose Plain Edge Satin Blade or partially serrated ComboEdge® Satin Blade. You’ll be ready for practically anything.

  • Pardue design. Made in the USA. Compact size for versatile carry
  • 2.9” modified drop-point blade of premium 154CM stainless steel, designed for enhanced tip strength
  • Ambidextrous AXIS locking system lets you flick the knife open or lock it fast with either hand
  • Black Valox® reinforced resin handle with 420J stainless liners and reversible pocket clip
  • Reversible pocket clip for comfortable carry on either side
  • Choose Plain Edge or partially serrated ComboEdge® Satin Blade in 2.9" or 3.45" blade lengths
  • Pink Breast Cancer Awareness models are also available with 2.9" blades; choose thumb stud or thumb hole

Please Note: It is the customer’s responsibility to be aware of any federal, state, or local restrictions and regulations that may apply when purchasing and carrying a knife.

BENCHMADE FEATURES EXPLAINED:

154CM: An American made premium grade stainless steel originally developed for tough industrial applications. Known for its best all-around qualities, it offers great corrosion resistance with good toughness and edge quality. HRC 58-60.

TANTO BLADE: The front edge of the enhanced, Americanized Benchmade tanto meets the bottom edge at an obtuse angle rather than curving to meet it as in the classic Japanese blade. Like the Japanese tanto, it has a high point in-line with the pivot. A flat grind is applied to the point, leaving it very thick and extraordinarily strong to help absorb the impact created by a piercing thrust. Originally designed for armor piercing, these supremely durable blades sacrifice some cutting surface area to gain tip strength.

VALOX® REINFORCED RESIN HANDLE: provides excellent stiffness, strength and dimensional stability. Molded to form.

AXIS®: A patented Benchmade exclusive, AXIS has been turning heads and winning fans ever since its introduction. A 100-percent ambidextrous design, AXIS gets its function from a small, hardened steel bar which rides forward and back in a slot machined into both steel liners. The bar extends to both sides of the knife, spanning the liners and 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 it’s inertia to engage the knife tang, and as a result the tang is wedged solidly between a sizable stop pin and the AXIS bar itself.

Reversible Carry-Clip comes installed on the right side (or non-Benchmade logoed side of blade) of AXIS knife products for right side pocket carry. If you prefer to clip-carry the knife in the left side pocket, it is important that you remount the carry-clip on the other side of the knife handle. This is recommended for ideal access and optimum user safety.

Benchmade Black Class products are designed, developed and tested for extreme duty. They are the preferred cutting tools for Law Enforcement, Public Safety and Elite Military Troops around the globe.
