    Thanks for this picture of the mini grip with the short deep pocket carry clip. I got my first mini grip a couple of weeks ago and have had it in my pocket ever since. I really enjoy this knife and find myself opening and closing it all the time. I purchased it because I have always liked the Benchmade knives of which I have a few but in particular with this knife the axis lock and thumbhole was what really attracted me to the knife, in addition to size for edc. I had a BM full size deep pocket clip that I put on it and it takes up two thirds of the handle. Looks like the short version is the way to go with this knife.

    My wife got this Mini Grip for me from the custom shop years ago. I just recently switched the clip from my Bugout to it, and it’s much more comfortable than the clip that came with it. I’m considering having the blade switched out to one in M4, since it currently has the 154cm right now. Still, it’s been quite the performer over the years.

    Got this one back from Benchmade a couple weeks ago. I decided to go with an S90V blade over the M4, and I had them add a deep carry clip so I could move the other one back to my Bugout. I wish they’d grind the blades on these a bit thinner, but it’s not too wedge-y. And the bevels were nice and even as well.

    Lockup was tight in all directions when I got it back, and the action is almost too smooth. I might have to tighten the pivot down to slow the blade’s swing just a bit.

    Yes, I'll have to inquire about that small deep carry one. Thanks gang!
    I like the 'chrome' one but the shine defeats the purpose lol.

    I currently have another Mini Grip coming from the custom shop. Nothing fancy, just a configuration I've wanted for a bit. Hopefully I'll be able to show it off in a couple weeks.

    Got the M4 Custom Mini Grip in today. It came with a great action and secure lockup. It had a little bit of a burr on the edge, and the grind on the top is slight off on one side, but nothing that affects usage at all. My only gripe is that it came with a black coated blade because I forgot to switch to the grey when I was building it. That’s all on me though, not Benchmade.

    Here it is with my first custom Mini Grip, with green G-10 and an S90V reblade.
