You won't regret this purchase!!!
Michael G.
Now for start, i will admit that i didn't buy this knife from this website. I bought mine from amazon in which came from DLT Trading. That being said, I have been carrying this knife for about a couple of weeks now and i can honestly say that from the moment i first got it out of the packaging and into my pocket, I instantly fell in love with this knife. From the look of it, to the razor sharp edge, it has everything going for it that i could ever want for a edc knife. This is my ideal knife for every basic edc tasks that i throw at it. Like i said in the title, you absolutely will not regret this purchase. It is a excellent knife and I can barley keep myself from admiring it constantly and wanting to use it constantly. Definitely worth every penny!
Less for more

I recieved my bugout in ranger green a few days ago, I've carried it and used it everyday since, my first impressions of this knive would be"wow thing thing is light, it looks awesome, it's super thin, a bit on the small side for my liking, i would of liked a little more beef over all, the blade finish/coating soaks up oils and shows fingerprints more than any other knife i have, i love it but it has flaws".
Great backpacking knife
George M.
Should have been called Benchmade Backpacker or something along those lines. Very light for the oz. counters, classic lines, very thin, disappears in the pocket. Iíve heen carrying it every day for a month now and Iím digging it. Taken it backpacking once and will take it on another 5 day trip at the end of the summer. It did everything I needed it to do on the trail. This is a winner, and I think great competition for some of spydercoís lighter frn offerings.

Iíve been meaning the pick the bugout up since itís release, when I heard the weight 1.85 oz I had to see it for myself. Benchmade accomplishes this by losing the liners in the handles. And I have to say I absolutely love it. Iíve been looking for a good edc for basketball shorts or running and this fits the bill perfectly. Wearing basketball short the knife disappears with its light weight and deep carry clip. Like other reviews say the handles do bow if squeezed hard due to no liners. I dont foresee this being a problem unless your Andre the giant. If your thinking about this knife stop and get it you wonít be sorry
Benchmade Bug out
David I.
Received the green scaled Bug out 3 days ago. The blade and lock are top quality. The handle scales are a bit flimsy. DO NOT put any pressure on them. They flex easily. They are made the same way the Griptillian scales are made but way thinner, thus less sturdy.
My new go-to EDC
Andrew L.
I was recently just in the market for a new EDC knife and I was torn between a few different brands and models. I have several other knives that I had carried in the past but I never had a Benchmade up until this point. I was definitely wanting to finally get a Benchmade so I was looking into the mini-griprilan, the full size griptilian, as well as a few others. I stumbled upon this exact knife with no prior knowledge of its existence and fell in love with it immediately. I purchased this knife and let me just say that it was the best decision for purchasing a new EDC ever. It is so lightweight that you forget the knife is there in pocket until you need it. The mini-deep-carry pocket clip put the knife down in your pocket where it remains discreet. The color combo on this knife is also my favorite of any Benchmade on the market right now. Overall, you canít beat this knife for the price for all that you get out of it.
Cool as frick
Tyler P.
If you're on this page, you probably have done your research and possibly even seen the reviews on YouTube or elsewhere (if not, look it up). This knife is good for both the collectors and the guy who just needs/wants a good EDC blade Ė it's light, thin, strong and just impressive to look at. S30V steel is sharp as a tack out of the box and perfectly centered between the scales. In addition to the quality of the knife, i'd like to commend the quality of service BladeHQ supplies. They're always competitive in pricing, offer free shipping as well as other various things to sweeten the deal; I got a free bottle of BladeHQ hot sauce with my order which is just plain cool.

Thanks, dudes (and dudettes).
Awesome EDC
Jake C.
I never leave reviews, but this knife deserves the exception. I pre-ordered this knife, and it was shipped to me within 2 weeks of placing the order (hats off to Benchmade for not teasing customers for long periods, and to BladeHQ for quick shipping).

I work at an retail store where opening boxes, cutting zip-ties and other general knife tasks are a common occurrence. After roughly a month of carrying this knife as an EDC, I can say it's the best small knife I've had. The lockup is solid, as should be expected with the Axis lock; and even without any metal liners, this thing is more rigid than it really has any right to be considering how light it is. The S30V blade comes out of the box razor sharp. The deep carry clip is a nice touch, wish more knives came with them from the factory.

Overall, I have no complaints about this knife. It's very aesthetically pleasing, the colors go together very well- pictures of this knife do it no justice.
