These Allen Putman Bugout replacement scales are made from G-10 in a jade color. They are specifically designed for the Bugout, and will not fit other models.
Customize your Benchmade Bugout knife with these sculpted G-10 replacement scales designed by Allen Putnam. They are made from heavy duty G-10, with a sculpted texture that enhances grip and feels great in hand.
Looks great, good quality and is a perfect fit. I could be wrong but I think these scales are only threaded for right-hand pocket clip carry even though the axis lock and thumb-studs are ambidextrous. If you're a lefty, I would confirm this before purchase.
Fit perfect, and they are much nicer than the original grivory scales. Negligible weight difference, the knife weighs 1.878 Oz with these on. As stated on another review, the scales only have threads on the right hand carry side, so that's something to be aware of. This color is also probably perfect to dye if you wanted.
When I first saw the scales, I thought they might be flimsy because they are thinner and lighter than ones I have from another company. They are not only robust, but they feel and look great. I prefer to carry the Bugout with these scales over my other Bugout, as it feels quite a bit lighter.
Can confirm what other reviewers suspected: these scales have no lefty clip threads. Additionally, the adhesive used for the threaded inserts on the right-side scale is dark, brown or black, and stands out in a bad way against the translucent jade scales. Construction, fit, feel, and appearance are otherwise solid.
