Replacement Griptilian scales? Login/Join

Who do we like for replacement scales for the Benchmade Griptilian?

I finally bought a Ritter RSK Mk1, which I've wanted for a while. (Now that they're being discontinued, I figured I'd better get one while I can.)

I've owned a standard Grip before, and the chintzy plastic handles were a bit of a turnoff, so I'd like to spruce up my new Ritter Grip a bit. I know there are a number of options out there. What do you guys like?

From a quick Google, I'm currently leaning towards Applied Weapons Tech, but I'm open-minded.

Google up some "Death Grips" by Death of All Things. He's in some of the knife forums and does some fantastic inlays.

Scroll down to the Doug Ritter Griptillian thread. Some nice shots of Wilkins grips, but they are pricey.


Blaming the crime on the gun, is like blaming a bad story on the pencil.

BladeScales.com makes some nice Griptilian scales.

I have a set on my Mini-Grip.

They get good reviews on youtube.

They have a 20% coupon offer now, "5 years".

Another rec for Blade Scales by Allen Putman. I've got some AWT scales but like the peel ply G10 from Blade Scales much better. I really like the stock outline but flat sides of these particular scales for the Grip. The texture is about like Spyderco peel ply G10.

You should take a look at Cuscadi (Custom Scales Division), located in Germany. I emailed with them a few times while I was living over there, they offered to give me a tour of the shop, unfortunately I never got to take advantage of their offer. Lots of options for the Grip & mini, among others.
