    Only mini grips and not the bigger brother?


    I only have the one right now is a 556-1303.

    [​IMG]

    A limited edition released in 2013 that has a 'clear' Ceracoated CPM-M4 blade.


    This one replaced my long loved and carried regular production 556 wiht 154CM blade. This one I acquired by entering and winning a contest on the BMK F.B. page.

    I carried it every day no matter where I was or what I was doing (other than boarding an airplane, of course. But it still travelled with me everywhere) for over 2 years.

    No longer have this one though. Last fall I was visiting a buddy down in Co. and found he had no knife at all, so I took it out of my pocket and gifted it to him.

    I like my Grips for sure but no matter how hard I try I just can not get into the Mini?
    I don't plan to stop trying though either!

    As most of you probably already know, I'm a huge fan of the griptilians little brother.

    Hi all! I've been eyeballing one of those mini grip but I've been wondering how do you carry the colorful ones? Don't they stand ou like crazy when clipped to a pocket?

    For me the bright colors are part of the fun, conversation starter and much less threatening than a black blade for some reason.

    Here is my heavily relied on work carry for over a year now. Far and above my favorite, I have 2 identical.
    [​IMG]
    This one I've sharpened to to 20 degree inclusive angle on the Lansky but very infrequently I notice some chipping (154cm) Thinking of going 25 inclusive or maybe a blade swap for s30vn. Im kinda rough on my work blade
    Edit: may even be gouging haven't had time to look at it under loupe. Just reprofile and go.

    I've had a Cabela's D2 for the past 5 years or so. It's been a very, very good blade for me. Kept me from looking for much else. This year I bought a full-size REI model that's been getting a bit more carry time.

    The Mini-Grip is a fantastic all-rounder. The blade is a good slicer, it's lightweight, and comfortable in the hand. Not a whole lot more you could ask for in a knife.

    The deep carry clip - left, yelliow- makes it a bit more difficult to see- I have an other than BM Ti clip, really deep
