If you’re looking for an everyday utility knife that can also be pressed into service for personal defense, the Benchmade Griptilian is a great choice. The Benchmade Griptilian is a very easy to open, easy to use knife that has the Benchmade Access Lock. It’s rugged, it’s durable and it’s a useful everyday tool.
The blade of the Benchmade Griptilian shown in this video has a partially serrated edge and partially standard edge. But you can get the blade in a completely standard edge if you prefer.

Your Custom Griptilian
The Benchmade Griptilian comes in a variety of colors and finishes. On Benchmade’s website, you can choose from a few different models of Griptilian, including the Mini Griptilian Family, and order a custom Griptilian. Customizable features are the blade edge, blade finish/color, blade style/shape, handle color, and handle material. Configure it the way that will work best for you.
I highly dislike half serrated blades. It’s like having a Glock 19 with a flint lock hammer.
