    Not sure if this is the best place to post this but I'm a huge fan of the Benchmade Griptilian and received these aftermarket ti scales today. Until now my favorite aftermarket scales were the Wilkins Grip scales and although I still love those because they are a well made product, when it comes to titanium aftermarket scales for the large griptilian, I think these are currently the best option. They're cheaper, lighter, contoured and not as bulky in the pocket, and seem equally high quality in terms of manufacturing/build. They probably aren't for everyone due to the lack of variations available but if you want ti scales, these are a great option. I forgot to take side by side comparison shots with the Wilkins but maybe next time.

    Those look way sleeker than Wilkins, think the Wilkins mini grip r fine but the large ones do look very bulky

    those are my exact thoughts....I only have the aluminum wilkins for my mini grip, but I think aluminum is the perfect knife handle material....if you're not doing electrical work.

    Those are very nice, but I like my G10 Wilkins a lot, both the small and large versions. I have some Igordeds in Micarta and G10 that, like the Flytaniums, approximate the original Griptilian scale shape. The thing I enjoy about the Wilkins is that they totally change the feel in hand/ergos of the knife. They are bulky, but I like that.

    Not knocking yours by any means, OP--they're really sweet and if I find myself buying more Grips than my current 6 (including a 551-1702, not shown) I may well try some.

    The system doesn't send me notifications when people post on my threads..not sure how it stopped working, but I just noticed this right now. I like wilkins too, here are a few of mine. The mini in aluminum is my favorite. the large titanium is way too heavy.
