The original WilkinsGRIP is a grip replacement kit I created for Benchmade’s Griptilian® series of folding knives. Each WilkinsGRIP gripset consists of a pair of precision machined grips, a separate spacer and any new screws you’ll need.
The blade and patented Axis® locking mechanism from your original Griptilian® drops into the WilkinsGRIP without any modification – which allows the factory grips to be re-installed later if desired.
The Benchmade pocket clip can be attached on either side of the WilkinsGRIP for full ambidextrous carry just like on the stock Griptilian®.
The Griptilian® is a great knife with one of the best locking systems in the industry. Try one with a WilkinsGRIP and I think you’ll agree that I’ve made a great knife even better!

One of the newest color combos I've tried is Toxic Green and Black layered G10. The milled Beesting indentations really stand out.
Grey Ghost matt titanium is really dressing down in style. Every time I make a run of BMG X2 grips in titanium, this finish is always a favorite.
I only made about a dozen of these Steampunk BMG X2 grips machined from 5mm solid brass with a distressed finish and inlays of various types of acetate. This is the same acetate used to make eyeglasses frames. In the optical trade it is called Havana.
Finally anew color for the BMG mini grips! This Desert Tan G10 is really nice stuff.
When I make grips from Alu I use 6082 T6, which is a stronger alloy than the more common 6061. 6082 machines very well, is highly corrosion resistant and anodizes very well.
Here's a set of BMG minis in pale green G11 installed. The pale green G11 is a material I began using many years ago for grips because it was easier to obtain than the colored G10 which had to be flown in from the USA. I love its jade-like translucence.
Here's a shot of a very early BMG gripset. In the beginning the back spacers were not serrated and lacked a lanyard hole.
Another early set of BMGs, this time from the first run of titanium grips I ever made!
