The 535S Bugout knife is built with a blue Grivory handle and a satin finished blade with a partially serrated cutting edge.

The Benchmade Bugout offers a lightweight, ergonomic build designed with everyday carry and general outdoor use in mind. Its high-performance CPM-S30V blade sports a partial swedge to provide a finer point, and comes fitted with blue anodized dual thumb studs for easy one-handed operation. The comfortable Grivory handle has been textured on either side for added grip without being abrasive. Comes complete with an oversized lanyard hole and reversible deep-carry clip for convenient EDC.

  • CPM-S30V blade steel for excellent edge retention, corrosion resistance, and cutting performance.
  • Dual thumb studs, reversible pocket clip, and AXIS® lock mechanism offer a fully ambidextrous build.
  • Lightly textured Grivory handle provides a secure grip and lightweight build.

Light weight and smooth deployment
Blake K.
This knife is so light (1.9oz on my scale), that you won't even know you have it in your pocket. Typically good Benchmade build quality and a hair popping 30v blade. Deploys quickly and smoothly with the ambi-thumb studs. A great EDC choice. 5 Stars if Benchmade can lower the price to anything below $100. Still a great choice at $115 though
This is my Delica
Derek W.
Kept seeing everyone talk about how great the Delica is, but I was never impressed. This to me fixes everything I didn't like on the Delica. The Bugout gives me the axis lock which is much better for one hand operation, easier to open and close, deep carry clip, and a better blade steel. Plus I still get the blue color, the thin profile for carry, and the extremely light weight. For me, Benchmade won with this knife.

Now if they would make some other colors and steel variety so I have an excuse to buy a few more.
Simply sweet EDC
Eric J.
This is between a Spyderco Delica and Endura, but ridiculously light. I have many Benchmade Axis folders, and the thumb-stud opening on this unit reigns supreme. The color rocks. Deep pocket clip and generous lanyard hole make this USA made EDC an awesome addition to any collection. Thank you.
