    Good to see you Baja[/quote]
    Thanks Tony, I've been down on the Mexican border working on drones for the army for the past seven months.

    He's not closed, just working on knives folks have on order.

    Yup, this

    I bug him once every 6 months or so, answer doesn't change. I keep hoping he will cave in one day and do one for me... ;)

    Far from it.

    He stopped doing regrinds to focus on building knives instead.

    Would a mini grip likely fit my hand well as a female? I know this is the fan thread, but think it's really worth it?

    I am a guy with normal size hands for my size (6'2") and I find that I can get a comfortable 3-finger grip on the Mini-Grip if I rest my thumb on the spine jimping. It would be ideal for a woman's carry.

    I am very recent to Benchmade ownership but I have been very impressed with both my full-sized Griptilian 551 (which is actually my largest folding knife now) and the Mini-Grip 555HG (modified sheepsfoot with the thumbhole).

    Yes, they are absolutely worth it.

    One heck of a knife for the money, and built to last a lifetime with the best factory support anywhere.

    Mmmmm, she's a dirty, dirty girl. Lightnig likes dirty girls like this one.

    Awesome looking user, can't get enough of a good knife being put to use like they are supposed to. :)

    That'd be cheating. That's all honest wear. Carried this knife to work just about every day since I got it last February.

    You are definitely welcome to come to my place anytime. I'll just make sure to wear new pants. :p



    DISCLAMER : this is just for the smilez. I would of course resent using deception to get a knife from you or taking advantage of that incredible thing you have called generosity.
