Gryphon Knives Terzuola Design M10 - VG-10 Blade w/DLC Black Finish - Boltaron SheathPro Sheath

Since Bob Terzuola, or "Bob T" as I call him, first showed me his prototype for what we would later dub the M-10, I was thrilled by its straight-forward design. I believed then, and still do, that it's the finest fixed blade knife in its size range. The M-10 falls into that just right category of being large enough to accomplish most tasks, yet small enough to be carried with ease. The handle fits your hand perfectly, whichever grip you choose. It's obvious that fixed blade knives, by their very nature, are stronger and safer than folding knives. The downside of fixed blade knives has always been their difficulty to conceal, and the negative attention they can bring. That problem is solved with the M-10 and its just right size. The full tang blade is given a black DLC (Diamond Like Coating) coating to reduce glare and for extra blade protection in harsh environments. The indestructible handle is made from DuPont Zytel, which is checkered to give you a positive gripping surface.

So many good knives are limited by the inadequacies of their sheaths. I'm a firm believer that a sheath should not only protect the knife from loss and the elements, but it should also protect its owner. One more factor to consider is how comfortable is it to carry, and how reliably can it be deployed under stress. This quest has led me to the best sheath makers available, and we've teamed up with three of the best in the business.

The sheath for this version is made by SheathPro, and they're using .080 Boltaron (PVC Rigid Plastic) for the sheath. Each SheathPro sheath is built by hand, and not the normal "cookie cutter" sheaths you see elsewhere. The quality is top-notch, and while you may not have realized it, you've probably seen their work before, as they make many of the fixed blade sheaths for Spyderco.

Easy to carry, and quick to deploy, the M-10 in its SheathPro sheath attaches to your belt via the Spyderco G-Clip. Should you prefer to attach to a harness or pack, you can use the G-Clip or simply remove it and lash directly onto your gear. Given all of these features, or better yet, get one in your hand and you'll see why the Gryphon M-10 is still my personal favorite! Jeff

    Gryphon VG-10

    Posted by Will Pylate on Apr 3rd 2021

    Excellent knife! Mini version of the M30A1 that I used to own (and looking to find again) and I will use this new VG-10 in my EDC rotation as a vertical belly knife EDC.. and I was really happy with the speed that this knife was delivered And I can’t express the quality of the sheath, it’s bar none the best quality sheath and carry clip system I’ve seen in a really long time, overall well worth the price and I will be a lifetime customer for the Cutlery Shoppe moving forward!

    Great EDC knife. I feel like I’m carrying a real knife got nothing against those lightweight lives but this knife has a nice “hefty” to it.

    Griffin knife Terzuola design

    Posted by John A. on Nov 15th 2019

    Excellent fixed blade tactical EDC! I was very impressed with the balance, feel and weight of the knife. The sheath snaps the blade securely and releases it in a positive action. Very happy with my purchase.

    Great knife, holds an edge. Handy and concealable. Quick to the draw. If you need a fixed blade on the low, this is a damn good choice. Quick shipping.

    Gryphon Knives M-10

    Posted by Greg on Feb 27th 2019

    Originally, I was looking for an EDC fixed blade like the Kershaw Military Knife, but was disappointed to find out that the model had been discontinued. I got on the Cutlery Shoppe site and remembered the Gryphon designs from way back. So, I was happy to see the newer M-10 designs and decided to give the solid VG-10 blade model a try.
    The size of the knife is perfect for EDC in multiple positions. The Zytel handle provides good grip without the tackiness of a Kraton handle, which would hang up more on clothing. The handle size allows for a secure hold with different grips. The blade shape and size will work well for utility and tactical purposes. The sheath and G-Clip are top quality, providing great retention/deployment as well as adding to the ease of carry. Overall, the package is just about perfect.
    I had a customer service issue, but it was addressed quickly, professionally and courteously. It could not have been handled any better. Thank you Cutlery Shoppe!
