From Benchmade comes the 535GRY-1 "Bugout" a tactical everyday carry blade that is ready to take on whatever chore you can dish at it.
This variation of the blade is crafted from CPM-S30V stainless steel that has been black chromium nitride treated for extra corrosion protection, giving it a smooth finish, yet still unreflective for tactical purposes. The drop point blade is 3.24" in length, and with a Rockwell hardness of 58-60, the .090" thick steel can be sharpened down to a razor sharp edge it will hold for a long time. Steel of this kind has the benefit of being flexible enough to have some give when force is applied without snapping in two, but also hard enough to maintain an impressive cutting edge. Whether it is putting this knife to work, tactical applications, or outdoors activities, you can bet that this knife will hold up under the pressures of the task.
The 4.22" handle is crafted from Grivory and available in Ranger Green featuring an oversized lanyard hole for the option of using paracord to carry. The handle is ergonomically suited to give you a sure grip in just about any conditions, wet or dry. The Axis lock allows for quick and smooth deployment to an overall length of 7.46" with a reliable locking mechanism that is going to hold that blade in place until you are ready to close it again. The titanium lock stud reduces the concern for corrosion as well as adding to the tactical look of the piece as a whole. The handle features a deep carry pocket clip, also finished with smoked grey chromium nitride to match the blade. The total weight of the knife is only 1.85oz. and when folded it is .42" thick.
This knife looks and operates on tactical levels, yet is compact and lightweight enough to carry comfortably in your pocket all day long.

Got one with the 'old' coating on the blade which I think looks way better than the new one...... Very happy, love the Bugout line.
