Benchmade Griptillian 551H20 final update

One of the more fun uses of the 551H20

The Benchmade 551H2O has continued to serve me well.  I have continued to carry it daily, whether at work, at home or out hiking.  Most duties have continued to be fairly typical knife duties but I carried it on a recent 3 day canoe trip on Black Creek in southern Mississippi and used it for some pretty heavy duty work.  On the first night I used  the knife for clearing a trail up to our campsite.  I spent about 30 minutes clearing the trail of all briers and small saplings, and even though I did not have to cut anything major, I did want to get the trail very clear because one member of our party was on crutches.  This meant cutting everything at ground level and even slightly below.

Wenger Titanium 1 Knife Review

by: Dave D’Abate

Wenger’s new knifes dubbed the Titanium Line were created in collaboration with world-class climber Ueli Steck. From Wenger’s site:

We teamed up with Ueli Steck to create a tool that he uses to make final adjustments to his equipment. We dubbed it the Ueli Steck Special Edition Knife and shortly thereafter the TitaniumLine was born. The Titanium 1 features the same unique blade as Ueli’s knife. It’s 44% thicker than standard blades and is equipped with an amazing 6 functions. The Titanium 1 as created for the extremes and it is also extremely useful for everyday adventures. We invite you to take one along on YOUR next adventure.
