Compact EDC Clash: Benchmade Mini-Bugout vs Mini-Griptilian | KnifeCenter Reviews

Squaring off are two compact folders ideal for lightweight EDC duty. Check them out here:

Benchmade has a couple of hits on their hands with the Griptilian and the Bugout. So for both, they made new, perfectly-pocketable, Mini versions. The Mini-Griptilian boasts all the variety of its full-size brethren, while the new Mini-Bugout shrinks the Bugout’s winning formula and shrinks it down until it fits into an Altoids tin.

This might be the creepiest knife center video ever, it’s like it was done in the basement of his moms house

Own a formerly white mini-bugout…Did a Black Rid Dye on scales, and now it is all blacked out. Been my EDC for about 2 months now. Love this little guy. Very lightweight and easy on the pocket carry due to small size, but can handle most daily projects.

I put a bugout clip on my mini grip which fits better. Mini grip clip is way too big.
Quality wise? Bugout is better.
Mini grip is a bit rounded which may be comfortable? I dunno both these knives are too small.
I think the regular bugout is better than both of these.

I have the full size Knife Center exclusive Bugout. It’s pretty small for EDC in my opinion

I can't see either being a bad choice. Both have great blade profiles, I can't decide. I'm gonna have to get both!

SHOTGUN KNIVES. Makes a great inexpensive!! Seepfoot Blade. "Check it out." Dave C Anderson…
Stay Safe 👍🇱🇷🗡

Honestly I'd probably have to go for the griptilian because of the sheepsfoot and all the other options, I do want to get a bugout at some point though.

No bugging out for me. I'll gladly stay and fight. Can Knife Center do some more videos on close quarters combat knifes please.

I bought a KnifeCenter Battlewash Bugout and never looked back. RealIy nice knife. I no longer have that lightweight folder itch.

I owned a mini grip a long time ago and gave it way because I thought it was too small. Fast forward to just over a month ago I was gifted a mini Bugout and absolutely love it. I guess my tastes have changed.

Mini griptilian for me. In a way it can take much more of a beating design wise especially If its updated to s30v.

Also mine had its scales swapped out into titanium cuscadi ones and is also a gift from a friend. That knife actually has a pretty neat story on how i lost and found it

Huge Bugout fan. Griptilians just have never been my thing. That being said, in the mini category I prefer the mini Freek. Great review though, thanks for the video.
