    As of right now, I have an option of getting my Benchmade Griptilian 557S in either 440C or 154CM. The only thing I know about 154CM is that it knives that use said metal are always sharper than 440C knives and I would not need to sharpen 154CM knives as much. As for 440C, I just know that a vast majority of knife companies use this metal and is considered an excellent all around metal in terms of it's edge, retention, and easiness to re-sharpen.

    Bear in mind that I plan to use this knife as a means of self defense and the occasionally handiwork.
