It's a whole new species of lightweight folder never before available with dual thumbstuds. The NEW! Model 551 Griptilian with a Modified Drop Point blade gives you a handful of modern age creature comforts specially bred for the person who wants something more from a knife, and at a price everyone can live with. The Griptilian is born of custom knife maker Mel Pardue's passion for functional designs. At the very heart of the Griptilian, is the exclusive AXIS locking mechanism. This modern marvel gives life to a cutting tool like you have never experienced before, especially in a lightweight folder. Rock-solid ambidextrous function is sure to tame the most die-hard of traditionalists. And you can grab onto the lightweight, injection molded handle with its grip-textured surface and rib covered spine that grabs you right back for a "can't let go" grip. The Model 551 also comes with a reversible carry-clip for right or left side carry. So now you've been warned, don't hold back… GET A GRIP!— GET THE GRIPTILIAN!
