Most carried knife I own
Aaron B.
Disappears in the pocket. Perfect blade centering. Sweet action. Loving the micro deep carry clip. Thin blade grind slices like a champ. Didn’t like the flex in the scales so I upgraded to custom jade g10 scales. Such a perfect everyday carry. Delica killer for sure!
Great knife
Jack S.
This is a great knife, it has a great action, great design, and I enjoy the design and the lanyard is convenient and a good work-in that combines a good aesthetic look with good design. I have two minor issue with this knife, I wish the serrations were longer, and the first time I carried this knife, the pocket clip bent A LOT. It's an easy fix, but it's just an inconvenience. Over all, great knife, just wish the serations were longer.
Best EDC
David G.
Love this knife. So lightweight and love the steel. Replaced the pocket clip with MXG titanium clip, well worth it. Overall best work knife yet, plus axis lock is amazing. Worth the wait. Thanks Blade hq.
THE Perfect EDC
John C.
This knife had everything I wanted in an EDC: Great quality blade steel, a deep pocket clip, it's extremely light and substantially thinner than other lightweight knives, and, most importantly, the price was right. I wanted an EDC that wasn't going to sag my pants or smack off corners when I walked past them, and I barely know this knife is on me. The blade is extremely sharp s30v and locks up rock-solid in the proprietary Benchmade AXIS lock. I wouldn't feel confident using this knife for more rugged applications such as prying or camp/bushcraft use, but for everyday utility, look no further.
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.
