Cabelas.com and select stores still have limited stock of the Benchmade Mini Griptilian 556-1. This model has upgraded multicolored and layered G10 Handles, flow through handle design, blue anodized setbacks and premium CPM-20CV steel.

My Cabelas in Scarborough, ME had 2 as of 12/31/18. I bought one. Price in the display was still $169 but rings up at $119.88 like online availability.

Go to the store. Ask if they have one. If they do, hand over your choice of payment. You could use cash like I did. Or if you're feeling modern go for your credit card. I suppose if you were feeling peevish, you could pay in coins.

If you don't know what a Benchmade Mini-Grip 556-1 is, or aren't willing to do the leg work for this YMMV in-store deal, then leave it for one of us knife nuts who do. It's a pretty good price for a nice knife, but I have large hands better suited to the full-sized Griptilian. And a wallet better suited to an imported Kershaw. Frown

Serious question, what does this knife do that another, sub-$50 knife would not?

This particular knife is a benchmade. It comes with a lifetime warranty which includes free sharpening if you don't sharpen your own. It also has cpm-20cv which is a very hard and tough steel that wouldn't be found under 50. The knife overall is tough and well built with no play in the blade. The action is smoother. Over all it's a fit and finish improvement.

The big thing is the steel though and the company that backs it.

Thanks for the explanation. If the internet has taught me something its that there are differences between the 90th percentile and the 99th percentile of an item class that most people don't recognize at all, but to some people are critically important.

This is showing in stock online for me at $119, and I believe it qualifies for the free shipping over $50.

Discover Card is running a promo for 20% off Bass Pro Gift Cards, which can be used at Cabelas as well (for online, have to call in to use BP Cards). Can knock another $24 off that way.

Just wanted to share my success grabbing one of these in the Wheeling WV physical store. They still had them in stock and gave me no trouble at all matching the online price through this link. They still had one in stock after I bought mine around noon 1-21-19. I love this knife as I have smaller hands and it fits my grip perfectly. It is my new EDC. Good luck as I know this is now highly YMMV.
