I have the Benchmade Mini-Griptillian and the Benchmade 530.

I find myself carrying the 530 more due to its thin profile. It's a great EDC knife for me.

I like both knives though.

The 530 is pretty cool and insanely lightweight. I had one for a little while. On the flip side, it is a THIN blade, and I have some serious doubt whether it could take much abuse at all.

Wife just got me a mini griptilian as well, I feel it locks up great. Nice and tight. We'll see how it holds up over the years, but for day one I'm liking it a lot.

Does that mini grip lock up tightly when open?
Yes.

It works just fine for what I use it for: EDC. I'm not batoning wood with it or trying to stab people to death.

I love my mini griptillian, about due for a sharpening though I don't baby it at all and it's held up to some abuse.

I carry the Adamas Folder every day that i can! Hefty, but its great! Going on a year now, and haven't felt the need to replace it.
