Benchmade | 551-1701 Griptilian

In the design and refinement phase for over a year, DLT is proud to offer our Benchmade Exclusive 551-1701 Griptilian. This luxurious folder features:

  • M390 super premium stainless steel at 58-61 HRC
  • Smooth carbon fiber with chamfered edges
  • Brass barrel spacers
  • Reversible black oxide deep-carry tip up pocket clip
  • Benchmade’s famous Axis Lock

When we set out to build the 551-1701, we asked Benchmade to spare no cost and build from the best materials possible - hence the M390 steel and carbon fiber handles. Small touches like genuine brass barrel spacers and a black oxide deep carry pocket clip yield a knife that is closer to a Gold Class knife than a production knife. Although the Benchmade Griptilian is not inexpensive, the premium materials used and the attention to detail added make this knife a very good value and quite possibly the best production Griptilian ever built. Put this Benchmade 551 knife in your hands and you will feel a well balanced knife that feels completely unlike the standard model. Choose from satin plain edge or black coated plain edge versions and see for yourself – you’ll be glad you did! 100% made in the USA with pride by Benchmade Knife Company.
