One of My Favorite Quotes...

“The Master in the art of living makes little distinction between his work and his play, his labor and his leisure, his mind and his body, his education and his recreation, his love and his religion. He hardly knows which is which. He simply pursues his vision of excellence in whatever he does, leaving others to decide whether he is working or playing. To him he is always doing both.”

EDC Knife: Benchmade Mini Griptilian

This is what I've been EDC'ing (every day carry) the past few/many years and served me well during those times. It's the ever popular Benchmade Mini Griptilian in green/black. Since this is carried daily, you'll see some wear and tear in the photos of this awesome knife. I basically just pulled the knife out of the pocket and went to town with the camera sort of speak. I also decided to purchase a new knife to replace the Mini Griptilian and retire it for a job well done and wanted to get some pics of it to share.

Product description of the Benchmade Mini Griptilian from Amazon... "The Mini Griptilian features textured Handle Scales (which are very strong and very lightweight). Double 410 stainless liners add strength to the knife handle. The blade is 440C stainless (plain) with a black finish and ambidextrous round thumb-hole opener. The pocket clip can be reversed for right or left handed people. The AXIS lock system makes the knife easy to open and easy to close (it operates identically for right and left handers)."

Let me tell you, this is probably my favorite knife that I have ever owned. I've owned my fair shared of blades, but this takes the cake. A relatively inexpensive knife compared to the others and it has never failed me. The action is so smooth and fast, due to the Benchmade's Axis locking mechanism. With a quick flick of the thumb, the blade just whips out. Essentially giving me no reason to look into autos of any sort. They're that fast. I just love it. As you can see, I prefer the straight edge over the combo edge. More photos of the Benchmade Mini Griptilian here...

I also chose the Mini Griptilian for it's size. With a blade a bit under 3 inches, it's not large enough to get unwanted attention. If you know what I mean. There's way too many people out there quick to yell and panic at the sight of a practical tool/knife. So, it's perfect for the casual user and perfect for EDC use. You really can't ask for more...
