    Thats why I am exploring newer options, although the Griptilian was a great go to for the 7 or 8 years I had it.
    Benchmade has come out with quite a few knives since then. Depending on desired blade length you may want to look at the benchmade crooked river - https://amzn.to/30pusrA. Great knife.

    The Benchmade Axis Stryker II in Carbon Fiber is an awesome knife - https://www.knivesshipfree.com/bench...-point-cpm-m4/

    Also look at ZT as the make great hard use knives. They make a mass produced hinderer, the 0566 that I think is almost better and a steal for the money - https://amzn.to/2Q3fFhG

    For autos you can't go wrong with Protech, Microtech or a newish player Piranha knives. All three make awesome autos but you would probably want to avoid out the front autos if it was your only knife.

    I see some folders in the 350-450 range that looks fantastic, but I cant justify that type of money.

    I think I could go 150-200 bucks.

    Whats the hotness in folders under $200 these days?

    Is the Griptilian still up there? It was the go to when I bought it back in 2011 or 2012, but a ton of stuff has come out since then.

    Im tempted to go back with another one.

    I live in Texas so I could run an auto knife, but im not a huge knife guy so for me its a one size fits all approach, so not sure an auto knife is the best choice...for me.

    My choice would be the Zero Tolerance 0566 160 bucks on blade hq. Great edc knife. Rides good in the pocket, comes with a deep carry clip, and good blade steel.

    I will check out that ZT 0566 at Cabela's on Friday(their website says the store I go to has it in stock, but who knows).

    They also have most of the benchmade knives available.


    I wish I could convince myself to get a fixed blade because I would love to own a Winkler of some kind.

    Checked out the ZT0566 at Cabela's... I didnt like the movement to close the knife... I dont like getting my fingers in the way of a closing knife blade. Immediate turn off.

    They didnt have a black on black Griptilian which was what I had...sold out.

    Checked out the Benchmade Freek and Mini Freek. Didnt feel right. I think it was the rubber grip on them, felt cheap, although I know they arent.

    I know I checked out at least one or two more Benchmades.

    Ended up with a Benchmade Pardue 531. I would have rather had a black blade, but silver is ok. I really like the G10 grips. Super light weight.

    Should be a good replacement for my Griptilian.
