Mini-Scalpel September 21, 2011
Reviewer: Joseph Padgett from Kennesaw, GA United States  
Upon receiving this knife in the mail, I couldn't have been more excited. Out of the box this knife sliced and diced anything I could get my hands on. And once it does get dull it takes a wonderful edge. The Axis lock mechanism is addictive to open and close over and over. While I usually go for bigger knife, this blade fit perfectly in and EDC role.
The biggest thing this knife has going for it is the FRN handle. The texture of the handle and the gimping make it so that this knife isn't leaving your hands even when it's wet.

The only complaint about this knife is that the pocket clip is quite large for a knife of this size. Benchmade decided to go with the standard sized pocket clip. Even though it has a under 3 inch blade the pocket clip is almost a 2 inches, which i think is a little much for a blade of this caliber.

Disclaimer: this knife will make you want to buy the full-sized griptillian too.
