Description:

In 2017, Benchmade shook the knife world with the release of the Bugout. It was the knife people didn't know they were searching for. It was simple, utilitarian, ergonomic, lightweight, had an ambidextrous lock and opener, and was made with quality materials. In the years since, the Bugout has become one of the best-selling knives in history. Benchmade truly made the Bugout a knife for everyone, and no collection is complete without one.

The Benchmade Bugout comes in two sizes and a multitude of colors, and has great aftermarket customization options as well.

I waited longer for this knife than any other, but it was worth it. The grind is very even as opposed to my last two Malibus, and the edge is as sharp as any I have ever seen out of the box. The action smoothed out quickly after being a bit sticky at first. I think this is the best Bugout ever...
Fabulous!

I have a couple of dozen Benchmade knives. I love how Benchmade does what they do. This is one of the sweetest! I already have Bugouts in CF Elite and Carbon Fiber (and a mini in CF Elite), but I'm very happy to add this to the growing Bugout collection I never expected to accumulate.

Every Bugout is a very good knife. Add beautifully turned aluminum and Benchmade quality and you have a work of art. It's a little heavier (it's a whopping 2.5 oz.), but I'm happy to tote the extra weight. Perfect centering. Smooth action right out of the box. Great job, Benchmade!
Good knife but usual Benchmade problems

Very good looking knife but came with a very bad grind witch could barely cut hair. At the tip it has a very small grind on one side. Blade also came with no lube....My S30V came with a better grind.
Exceptional Quality!

This is the Pinnacle of bugouts.

The scales are light weight and amazing, the blade is phenomenal. Smooth put of the box needing very little break in.

The listing here says DLC coated but it is in fact not. It's a black Cerakote finish. But don't let that discourage you from this amazing knife. Some of Benchmades best work to date.
