The Griptilian is born of custom knifemaker Mel Pardue's passion for functional designs. You release the creature's ferocity with a thumb stud. At the very heart of the Griptilian, is the exclusive AXIS locking mechanism. Rock-solid ambidextrous function is sure to tame the most die-hard of traditionalists. And you can grab onto the lightweight, handle with its grip-textured surface and rib covered spine that grabs you right back for a "can't let go" grip. The blade steel has also been upgraded on this model to CPM-20CV stainless steel. CPM-20CV is virtually identical in chemical composition to Benchmade's current M390 steel but is made in the US by Niagara as opposed to Bohler which is based Austria. It offers better edge retention but is not quite as tough to resharpen as M390.

The 0393, based on Rick Hinderer's Eklipse, features a harpoon-style version of Rick's famous "spanto" blade in CPM-20CV stainless steel. The blade shape offers maximum cutting power with a sturdy tip for piercing. The 20CV steel provides superior hardness and corrosion resistance, along with toughness, wear resistance, and excellent edge retention. For smooth opening, the 0393's blade moves out of the handle with ZT's KVT ball-bearing opening and a handy flipper tab.
The 0393's handle is built of strong, lightweight titanium, anodized in a handsome blue. A G10 overlay, machined with a Rick Hinderer custom texture, not only enhances grip, but also adds to the knife's outstanding look. The 0393 will also accept a selection of Hinderer custom hardware so you can truly make it your own.
