    just curious, are there any other fans of the benchmade griptillian out there? I had been wanting one for a long time and finally got one a while ago, and it is my all time favorite. I got the olive drab handle with a combo edge and coated blade. so, tell me what you think of the griptillian, is it anybody else's favorite knife?

    I like both my Griptilians, they're great knives and if you aren't keen on the OEM grip-set there's a lot of aftermarket alternatives.

    I personally prefer the versions with the Doug Ritter blade profile myself.

    Love my Black, serrated, tanto full size. One of my favorite knives, and I would die for some Wilkins scales on it.

    L O V E my Mini Grip. Haven't left my pocket for a while now. Got my ZT0350 in my bag for more serious cutting tasks though.

    I've got one with a partially serated blade. I'm very happy with it. I am eyeing a smaller blade version with no serrations.

    I have the 550SHG full size with combo blade and the 555HG mini-grip. I love both of them and purchased the mini after determining that the full size was a little large to edc (I work in an office setting).

    I love that it's blue, purple, has the EDCF logo on it, my user name on it, and most importantly... that it was a gift from the Conspirators!

    Other than that, it's the perfect size for my little hands and is nice and grippy. :) It design is pretty too. :bounce:

    I only have a Doug Ritter mini Grip. But I love it. Just feels right in some way.. It gets as much pocket time as my Sebenza's, Hinderer and other higher $$$ knifes..

    Here is some pictures from the first day I got it. :)

    Love me some Grips. I've got three and love the design. One of my favorite things of this knife is the grips, they feel like they were made for me :)

    Vesp is the reason why HDS is so slow at getting lights sent out. He's bleeding them with his Ritter.

    Excellent first use, but a bear would have been better.

    I was excited to get my first benchmade knife (full size grip) but I'm not crazy about the handle. I have big hands but it feels big and unwieldy to me. I like it overall but its not a daily carrier for me. What are some options for aftermarket scales?

    Wilkins. I have the large and small and have Wilkins on both. They really make a difference. Pricey, but gives the Benchmade a whole different feel.

    I love my grips, I have 5 right now. You get a really tough knife for so little money.
