Benchmade Griptilian 551H2O Folding Knife N680 Blade AXIS Lock Orange Handles

SKU: V8329C

The Benchmade 551H2O Griptilian offers the value of the classic GTX handled Griptilian optimized for use in highly corrosive environments with the substitution of a Bohler N680 blade. This version comes with a plain edge, satin finished Drop Point blade with thumb stud opening and Orange handles.

The blades of the Griptilian series were designed to excel at everyday cutting tasks while keeping enough in the tank to handle the worst scenarios. The 551H2O comes with a satin finished, N680 Drop Point blade and dual thumb stud opener with a mid-height saber grind offering a great combination of toughness, edge retention and exceptional corrosion resistance. A top swedge tapers the point to enhance piercing performance without sacrificing durability.

Orange Noryl GTX handles house the robust and ambidextrous AXIS lock mechanism with partial steel liners for durability. The handles are diamond textured and contoured for a secure and comfortable grip in any position. Noryl GTX is a polymer resin that is tough, lightweight and resistant to heat, cold, water and chemicals for a truly hard use cutting tool.


N680 specializes in resisting corrosion caused by chlorides (i.e., salt, sweat, etc.). Corrosion resistance is better than 420 while offering better edge holding (Between 420 and 154CM).
