Benchmade 551-1 Griptilian First Production

Well folks, at a pawnshop I saw this Benchmade 551-1 Griptilian. Awful grey and blue. But it had First Production 218 of 1000. $130 bucks and it is mine now.

Now I have other Benchmade knives, including a Presidio II auto I got for $100, but this had the "First Production."

I'm getting conflicting values when I surf the net. I presume $130 isn't bad. Is it discontinued?

You may see different prices because they changed the steel in the blade. Their website still shows a Griptillion model (with S30V) at $140, so you did ok on the price.

God bless Texas! Now let's secede!!
