Pardue-Designed 154CM Blade

One of the most popular and most versatile knives in the Benchmade collection, the Griptilian features a 3.5-inch blade made from 154CM stainless steel—a Crucible Industries steel known for its resistance to corrosion and edge-holding ability. Designed by one of the most influential knifemakers of the 20th century, Mel Pardue, it offers a full-size grip and a blade that excels in everything from piercing and slicing to detail work. The blade locks in place with HK’s ambidextrous Axis lock, which Benchmade knives have come to be known for. Using a spring-loaded mechanism positioned at the top-back corner of the handle, the lock is easy to operate and sturdy enough to hold through grueling work.  

Note: Pricing for each model will vary (+ $0 to + $75) depending on handle material, blade steel and finish. Due to the sensitive nature of shipping knives internationally, we are able to ship only some of the knives on Massdrop to select countries. It is the responsibility of the buyer to know and comply with all importation regulations and local laws. Click here for additional information.

Choose Your Griptilian

Since it’s been a staple of the Benchmade collection for years, the Griptilian is available in a wide variety of styles, colors, and materials. At checkout, you’ll have your choice of 24 different options, each with a different look and application. Choose between a satin-finished drop-point or a black tanto blade, grab a sand-colored nylon handle or upgrade to a gray G-10 handle—the price of each knife will vary. All knives feature a flat grind, except the sheepsfoot models, which have a hollow grind.
