A Benchmade Griptilian test like no other. Crocket takes the popular Griptilian 551 into the backcountry to put it through the ringer. Click here to buy a Griptilian: http://www.bladehq.com/cat--Benchmade...

A huge shout out to Crocket for helping us out with this vid. He's the kind of guy that if you're not following on YouTube, you should be. Check out his channel here:

He also put together a little raw behind-the-scenes footage:

If you haven't subscribed to KnifeHQ, BladeHQ's YouTube channel, we're not sure what you're thinkin' son. Fix it:

Everything you see in this video is legit. We didn't prepare anything, contrive anything or script anything. It was just a knife, a couple of guys and a camera. We realize this is not a wilderness blade. It wouldn't be our first choice in the backcountry. However, we tend to think there is merit in taking a folder out and seeing what it can handle in a wilderness situation-- not because it is meant for that purpose, but because it's possible that it might be the only thing you have in a pinch.

As a side note: this is a bit of an experimental video. If you like it, please let us know in the comments. If you want to see more material like this, let us know! Share it, give it a thumbs up, and tell us what else you would like to see.

As another side note: in full disclosure, we did not pay Crocket to say anything he said. We did work out a deal with him that involved the knife, but he proceeded with caution because he is not what he calls a "gear whore." He's not the paid BladeHQ poster child, but it was our pleasure to work with him.
