    I just turned 44 the other day, so I'm carrying my 1976 Wenger Soldier alongside the new Benchmade 550-1 Griptilian.

    Thank you Sir for your straight forward and honest review it’s much appreciated. I must say the ones you have are absolutely beautiful and I’m glad you were able to dial them in. I agree at that price point though you shouldn’t have to do that much dialing imo. They have as I mentioned a new release the 3.25 Harsey in s45vn priced at 395.00 .There was only one partial review/unveiling I could find and it was positive but could of been a little bias because it was a well known you tuber that just received one straight from the maker with a hand written note from him.He’s normally pretty honest but again could of been sugar coating this one a little out of respect for the owner/maker.

    If you really like it, i would say go for it, ymmv. It still a really well-built American made knife backed by military background!

    I was able to dealt with most issue on the first day i got it and still enjoy the knife. S45vn is sure appealing tho. ;)

    It's not a vortex, it's a Sig Romeo 5 XDR predator.

    That is unfortunate to hear. This one has been on my list for some time.

    It is still a good knife made for hard use! Just a bit lacking in F&F and bit overpriced for s35vn/ti with the lack of refinement. But like i said your might vary!

    This guy here has most of my issues as well but i think the problem here is inconsistency.

    Viper Lille riding shotgun for a quick supermarket run. The weekend doesn’t really start until the fridge & freezer are fully stocked with game day provisions..

    It was for me too!
    Me too, though I have to admit that if I carry just one knife, it will be a SAK. ;-)

    I probably have 50 SAKs. This is my 2nd Griptilian; the other is the basic Mini Grip. By the way, I just wrote a review of the 550-1 Griptilian over in the reviews forum. Check it out if you want.

    I get where you're comin' from, D, and certainly appreciate that attitude. I've got a couple dozen knives to rotate as work users, ranging from high-value pieces like several each of my Shiros, CRKs, RHKs, and others, down into the the Spyderco, ZT, and Benchmade range. Those knives get used pretty hard when needed and bear the scratches, scuffs, and trails to show it.

    On the other hand, I enjoy the honeymoon period with lots of my newer knives. While some go right into the work rotation, others get carried and used more lightly at first, gradually picking up wear or that first scratch with many of them transitioning to work knives. I like to have some that I keep nice while still using them without accumulating drawer queens, a fair number of which have been sold off while others have made the transition to harder use. That first scratch or scuff usually doesn't bother me much anymore as it just means more opportunities for carry and use.

    I've got the new 31 with me again today and, as a certifiable geezer who's out on job sites way less than he used to be, I have more occasion to carry it and keep it initially nice until it assumes greater responsibilities. :);)
