Benchmade Mini Griptilian Scales - Archon Series - Contoured - Anodized


“Archon” means “Ruler” in Greek and our new Archon series Mini Griptilian rules them all. With this series we combined our unique understanding of scale manufacturing along with customer feedback to make what we feel is the perfect scale. The contoured surface vastly improves ergonomics, while making it easier to access the AXIS lock, and increased rigidity over nylon versions. The scalloped pattern makes for an incredible grip while the redesigned profile eliminates any and all hot-spots. The ambidextrous clip holes allow for both right or left hand tip-up carry. These scales will fit either the nylon or the G10 Griptilian. These will not fit the Hogue Doug Ritter version. We do have a set for the Hogue Ritter and they can be found here COMING SOON. The Archon truly leaves nothing to be desired.

Each kit comes with 2 grip panels, 1 backspacer, and all necessary hardware (2 screws for our backspacer are included, liner screws and pivot are reused from your knife). As with everything else at AWT, these scales are machined from 6061 aluminum to incredible standards. Once machined, they get tumbled, cleaned, blasted, and Cerakoted to one of many colors. Please keep in mind that Cerakote is a ceramic paint, albeit tough, isn't indestructible. This coating will wear over time on hard edges and will develop a nice distressed/worn look over time.

As with everything else at AWT, these scales are machined from 6061 aluminum to incredible standards. Give them a try, we guarantee you won't be disappointed. As always, our grips are backed by our Lifetime Warranty. If you break it, we replace it at no cost to you.

Type III Hardcoat Anodized Colors - Black, Sniper Grey, OD Green, Flat Dark Earth, Brick Red, Billiard Blue

Type II Anodized Colors - Cobalt Blue, Weathered Red


You buy Type III hard coat for toughness not perfect color matching. If you want colors to be exact, please purchase Cerakote. Due to the nature of Type III Hardcoat anodizing there may be slight color variations from batch to batch or side to side. Sometimes there may also be some light mottling in the color, or the grain of the aluminum may show through the coating. This is normal and in NO way affects the performance or function of the grips whatsoever. We feel that it is a worthy tradeoff for a vastly superior coating hardness. The Type III coating we use is incredibly hard (harder than steel actually) and is the MOST durable coating available on the market.
