[Amazon Canada] Benchmade Mini Griptilian $99.99

I'm not sure if it's to clear out stock before a crackdown on Axis lock blades, or just a co-incidence, but the lower end benchmade mini griptilians are at a very recent lowest price.
I know there are lots of nice blades out there to tempt our wallets, but these are good prices on, quality made in USA EDC knives with high end 154CM steel plus fufilled by Amazon.
I didn't check triple Camel for all of their price histories (variations of blades etc) but these models are showing good price drops.
Model 556 droppoint
Model 556 sheepsfoot (with spyder style hole) $115

prices vary with colour and blade variations.

They are clearing out old models i am assuming, since they upgraded the steel on the all the griptilians very recently.

Have the plain edge, black grip model. Bought it 5 years ago and love it. Still my EDC and will be for a long time.

The AXIS locking system is amazing too.
Please don't ask or beg for "thanks". Don't act like this is Facebook. If someone found your post helpful, let them decide if they want to make that click. The more you beg, the less you'll get. Cheers

Crackdown on Axis lock blades? What’s that about? I’ve been toying with buying a Benchmade Bugout.

Canada Border control knife crackdown
I know it seems a bit "sky is falling" if you read the thread, but on a number of other forums and I recall reddit too, people have stopped buying these type of knives (tho mostly Chinese brands like Ganzo etc) if they have to cross the border since they seem to be getting confiscated with some regularity. ("rapid opening" knives like assisted knives and these axis-lock etc)

That was the appeal of buying from Amazon Canada to me (besides the price) note: They will charge you shipping if you try to return them. (RFD's buy now think later policy didnt work out in this case for me Face With Stuck-out Tongue And Tightly-closed Eyes )

yes that is true, but I didn't see a post on these recently low prices (previously only matched 3 to 5 years ago)
Just giving people a heads up.
I have been eyeing these knives for a while, but don't check prices of everything on my mental wishlist regularly, so I was happy when I found out about these price drops.

prices vary with colour and blade variations.
Only BLUE is $99.99, Pink is $114.95

Might want to add that somewhere before anyone else wastes their time clicking through all the variations.

The new ones are out and they are $20-$30 more than the previous version. Mini grips are now $135-$152 in Canada. Just for a new steel I couldn't give a bigger crap about.

I did mention in then first post that prices vary.

Though perhaps it’s the amazon pricing algorithm but but when I originally posted most of the options were $99.99.
Thank you for your contribution !

sorry for my initial snarky reply,
I was frustrated by two screaming kids in the back of my car while I was driving on the 401 and responding to your post, then some @$$hat cut me off.

Are you sure you are not looking at USD prices for the new versions, for $135-$152 I'd be happy to pay the premium for the G10 scales and fancy spacers alone.

Please don't text and drive with your kids in the back.

You were cut off probably because your were driving in the left like everyone else in Ontario.

nope not me, I'm strictly a middle lane driver.
That said, I do wish everyone in Ontario would "thank you" wave.

Tru dat, even tougher trying to determine which options are available.
seemed only certain color and blade combinations are available.
The app seems to make deciphering the combination/availability /price matrix easier to navigate

If you’re not into the steel then save 70% and go for this. Happy with mine.
