The heart of any knife is of course its blade steel. When it comes to folders, a factor that's even more important is a lock mechanism you can count on. Benchmade's AXIS lock is certainly one of the best. The Griptilian features a black finish drop point blade that's crafted from premium CPM-S30V steel. The GFN (Glass Filled Nylon) handles have a subtle texture that isn't rough on the hands but helps keep it from being slippery even when wet. The handles also feature skeletonized double stainless steel liners for extra strength and rigidity. You'd be hard pressed to find a better EDC folder than the AXIS lock Griptilian from Benchmade. Proudly made in the U.S.A.!
