Custom Bugout with CPM 20CV

Hi, I finally decided to get a Bugout, not only was I hesitant to get one, and took me long enough to do so.

I went into benchmade's website since this particular 20CV G10 handles is out of stock, turns out I paid about $215 for a non g10 handle, but with CPM 20CV steel, the dark green scales, and everything else as I wanted.

Straight out the box action needed some break in, which took about 3-4 days of playing with it, now its much better. I love that axis lock/action, and this bugout has become my EDC, despite having several other great knives.

This knife blade profile is slicy, just enough for pretty much all cutting tasks... and man, its very sharp.

I am happy I decided and just sharing my thoughts here.
It was a great value on clearance

This is my backup user around the property, or when I need to cut something more accurately than my chunky Medford, but I can't imagine paying more than 150 or so for any Bugout.

I've had this blade since Christmas and I've only used it for light tasks like breaking down the occasional box or opening bags and packages. I just recently noticed that the front half inch from the tip was already dulled with visible notches in the steel. Very disappointed that a blade that is supposed to be super tough would start to fall apart like this.
Wow!

I just received mine in the Mail! Simply Amazing. I own quite a few Benchmade knives, ZT's etc but this is going to be the one that I carry daily. So light and oozes quality! Love it!

I have a collection of Hinderers, Spyderco exclusives, Quiet Carry and Three Riversí folders, and I decided to add this to my collection. Opposed to standard Bugouts, this example offers 20CV with rigid scales that to not flex... making it feel like a much more substantial knife. The Axis lock was a little sticky at first, but after a week of fidgeting flicks... the knife deploys and disengages perfectly. Itís blade, size and thin profile remind me of my TRM Neutron, which is the paragon of quality EDCs. My sample luckily did not suffer from an off-center blade, so I am quite satisfied with this exquisite knife.

The action works great and its honestly still worth the money I just don't understand why the blade is soooo off center when closed that its touching the scales... might be the last benchmade I ever buy just because for the money it looks like no effort was made and they were just shot out as fast as possible...

This is my first Bugout knife and I thought I would go with BladeHQ exclusive. However, now I think I should of just went with the original bugout and customized it myself. I received the knife with Joint screw way too tight. Also, after about two weeks my thumb stud was coming loose. Thankfully I got it in time and was able to put some thread locker on it. Overall the knife steel is good and sharp the alignment was a little left but was easily fixed. I like the G10 scales and the color scheme. However, for the price point on this exclusive I feel the issues I described above should have been fixed before sending the knife out.

This is the one that finally made me pull the trigger. Love the color scheme. Came super fast btw. BladeHQ was well prepared for this exclusive. This fits right in between my full size ritter hogue rsk and the mini (which I gave to my wife as it was too mini). So this looks great and is SUPER slicey. Just ran it through paper like a downhill on the slopes, any way I carved it did so happily. Scales feel very solid. By far my lightest knife (spyderco guy - Para 3 smallest) and it feels great. Mine came with a Bugout specs mat also, wow, bonus.

Edit: mine has blade play
