    How many hands do you have?

    I will be very happy with just the left-hand column. Don't even know there was once a green Grip. Thanks for sharing the family album.

    With Aloha,

    As an EDC, for me my full size is a bit too big to carry around town - its very thick due to the robustness of the handle and feels awkward in my pocket, either clipped or "free" in my pocket.

    I'm in nyc and knives are always a hot-button issue with the police so I never clip mine on my pants as cops look for the clip - I always let it ride at the bottom of my back or side pocket - this is not comfortable at all with my full size but perfect with my mini.

    Also, realistically the mini has been just as useful and capable in all situations as my full size.

    However, when I don't have to worry about carrying a knife in public and am in the country, I opt for my full size grip or my HK 14205.

    If you want a true edc that you'll feel comfortable carrying ANYWHERE, go mini... or buy both
    ...as for me, when you want a good laugh, you will find me, in a fine state, fat and flourishing, a true hog of Epicurus' herd...

    From this thread (and this other one):

    Quote Originally Posted by greenLED View Post

    Full size vs. Mini vs. Cross pen:


    Full size:


    Mini:
    My hand is about 3.25" measured across my knuckles. Read post #21 on the first link above, as it has a good comment about choosing the "right" size.

    I just checked, and Cabelas does only show a Combo edge on the webiste, but just to the right of the picture, where there is a pull down menu that says "Model", you can choose plain or serrated.

    Amazing how a picture can make you feel all warm and fuzzy inside. Seriously though, killer collection wish I had even half!

    Anyone else catch the pilot episode of "Homeland Security USA" last night?

    After a drug dog alerted to the spare tire on a truck, and an X-ray showed some packages inside the tire, a CBP officer cut the tire open with a 551SBK Griptilian.




    And to REALLY get me going for 2009, check out what's coming this year!!!

    551ORG Blaze Orange Griptilian!!!!!!

    Haven't found it yet, it probably won't be "out" until after the SHOT show this month.

    Chris,

    You're right! I can't find anything on Google. I like those bright color handles, sorta adding some island flavors!

    I just spent $64 on a brand new regular-sized Griptilian, , and has a tracking number sitting in an email still.

    Why didn't I wait a little longer? I like colorful and easily-recoverable-if-dropped tools.

    Has anyone seen the new 551-ORG for sale yet ?

    Do these have rubber grips, or are they all metal ?

    I never had a Benchmade before...
