For the serious outdoorsman, prepper, tactical enthusiast, or someone who needs the reliability and dependability of an everyday carry knife, Benchmade has put these tools in your hands for decades. The Bugout series offers low weight, quality materials, and American Made craftsmanship that are priced perfectly for a knife you can leave in a tacklebox, bugout bag, or if you carry with you every day.
As part of the Bugout Family of knives, new to the collection comes the
Bugout Mini 533, featuring all of the same design features as its full-sized relative (the Bugout 535), at a weight of only 1.5oz and reduced in overall scale. Miniaturizing the Bugout 535 gives even more options to carry easier this knife in your everyday life.
The Bugout features a CPM-S30V tool steel blade with a Rockwell hardness of 58-60, which means that it resists getting knocked around without chipping or marring, but the .090" thick blade stock can be sharpened down to a razor-sharp edge that will stay sharp cut after cut. The corrosion-resistant drop-point blade is satin finished and is available in either plain edge or partially serrated. A generous swedge gives it a spear point look without changing the functionality of the blade or its cutting profile. The Bugout is excellent for slicing, yet durable enough for cutting wood for kindling; perfect for any EDC situation.
The blade deploys with either the flick of a wrist or the ambidextrous thumb studs on the blade. Steel liners provide support with slight jimping on the back of the Grivory handle. The AXIS lock, which is iconic of Benchmade knives, gives you security in keeping your blade locked open when you need it opened. The adjustable spring steel clip gives you ambidextrous deep-pocket carry options for right or left-handed use. A generous lanyard hole at the butt of the handle allows for a variety of paracord uses. Benchmade offers handles made of lightweight Grivory in black, blue, orange, and ranger green, as well as the new CF-Elite material. Even lighter than Grivory, this carbon fiber and nylon polymer material provides a sure grip in any weather or carrying condition; wet or dry, rain or shine.
