I don't know much about Benchmade knives, but I like the 551 and 553 Griptilians. I also like the Nimravus. With the Griptilians, I'd prefer either the 551 or 553 with an OD handle and black blade. Only problem is that they don't list either of these knives in a plain edge version, only semi-serrated. Through some google-fu I found that older Griptilians were made in this configuration, but with D2 steel. They're now discontinued apparently. With the Nimravus, I'd prefer the OD handle(or ADC, whatever they wanna call it) with black blade but again they only seem to offer it in semi-serrated. So what's up with Benchmade? They don't offer straight edge versions with black blade and OD handle? Or are they just trying their best to push semi-serrated on people since the straight edge versions sell themselves?
