The Mini Griptilian features textured black handle with stainless steel liners (which is very strong and very lightweight). Double 410 stainless liners add strength to the knife handle. The hollow ground blade is 154-CM stainless (plain edge) with BK1 black coating. 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).
