This Mini Griptilian has a black Valox® handle (very strong and very lightweight). Double 420J stainless liners add strength to the knife handle. The blade is 154-CM stainless with a partially serrated hollow ground edge. Black finished blade with 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).
