Wouldn't D2 steel be of a model that's been around for a while? I don't recognize that one.

That's surprising to me that they're releasing a new model with D2...

So how much did it set you back?  :pok:

Well it's a sweet looking blade. Reminds me a little of my 710. How does it compare in size?

I was gifted a 710 for father's day, but I didn't like it, I don't know why, just didn't feel it. So I exchanged it to the H&K Axis
710 is a bit longer.

Had to dig up some old pics. Here is my Mini Grip.




This Ritter Grip was traded off to another MTOer.

Nice. I've been after the 555 for ages but it is hard to get here in my price range.

You  can't tell the difference between the bm 550 and the 555 except the latter has a larger thumbhole opener.

Oh, I thought the 555 was the Mini Grip. I like full size liners compared to the partial ones on the larger Grips.

You are correct zoidberg! The 555 is a minigrip! I just relied on this pic below I got from
the net saying it's the bm 555.

At one time I had over fifty . I got smurfed off at Benchmade , as they were unwilling to sell or give me spare Omega springs . Gave them all to a Dude collecting knives for forward deployed troops in Iraq and Asscrackastan .

BTW at the time I was a practicing locksmith , and was well able to beal with springy things .

My fave Benchmades were the 520 , and the 350 ( best IWB folder ever )

I'm tempted by a brightly colored Mini Grip for work , now that they have a variety of blade shapes , and steels . Tho to be fair , Benchmade's 440C was superb .
