    ok, i'm going to get a pocket knife for around 55-60 bucks, this seems to be a fan favorite, however on benchmade's site it says it is 154cm steel but on the store websites it says it is 440c, which is it? i would prefer 154cm but i cant seem to find it anywhere, confused i guess :dunno:

    also whats easier to use, the thumb stud or the little hole, i could care less about looks, i would be using it w/ gloves on most of the time if that makes a difference

    They changed the Grip steel from 440C to 154cm this year. I don't know the differences but I love my Grip's. I have 3, one in D2, one combo edge in 440C, and Ritter in S30V (my favorite) Thumbstud/hole is preferance, myself I like the stud.

    would it be beneficial to get it in 154cm, i'm not too knowledgeable about the steels but IIRC 154 holds an edge better?
