Could be the perfect EDC

I found this knife on the hunt for the perfect EDC. I like my EDC to be big enough to be useful but small enough that it doesn't become an uncomfortable lump in my pocket. Beyond that I want the knife to be high quality. This hunt actually led me to the Benchmade Mini Griptillian which can be had for as little as $90 (REI).

This knife checks all the boxes for me for the perfect EDC. Benchmade makes high quality knives and offers lifetime sharpening (though I have never taken them up on that). I prefer a standard drop-point blade that can be easily sharpened at home. Another feature I prefer is a knife that clips in my pocket tip up. This allows me to pull it out and open it without rotating the knife.

Even though I think this is the perfect EDC I ultimately ended up buying the Benchmade Emissary 470-1 which then went back for the Mini Barrage. (Long story, see my Emissary 470-1 review for why). I'll probably end up adding a Mini Grip because I think it's a great knife at a great price (as little at $90 at REI). You just can't go wrong with Benchmade knives. Whatever knife checks the boxes for the features you're after will be the knife for you.

    • Water in kayaks ?
    • I have a sit-in. I keep a bail bucket (a square-lipped quart-sized dinghy bailer) and a sponge. I like to keep dry once inside.
