Description

The 533BK-1 Mini Bugout knife is built with a white Grivory handle and a black blade with a plain cutting edge. It's all you love about the Bugout, but smaller.

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 black 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.

Features:
  • 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.

Severely Disappointed

In my opinion, this is one of the better looking knives on the market.

The good stops there however.

I was extremely excited to get this knife, but upon receiving, I was let down.

The mini is smaller than I expected and between the light weight and grivory scales, it just feels cheap.

All of my other budget knives feel sturdier and better built.

While the axis lock is fun / fidget friendly, it has a tendency to bind up or lock up and I find this to be extremely annoying.

This knife was carried daily for a short while, but was quickly pulled from my rotation because it just feels cheap and I fear I'm going to break it.

Lesson learned with Benchmade.

At $136 dollars, there are much better options out there.


A little disappointed

Any kind of dirt in your pocket gets in the lock mechanism which is a spring. When that happens the knife cannot be opened using the thumb stud. The action sounds like grating. Other than the locking mechanism, I really like the knife.

I love my mini bugout. I was hesitant on the white scales but they look great against the black blade and clean up nicely. I love the fidget factor with this knife. It is a very useful tool that I've used on everything from palm fronds, hotdogs, to cutting aluminum cans - that I wouldn't recommend because it yucked up the black coating a bit lol. Definitely my favorite knife.

I bought my minibugout from the Benchmade website because it was sold out here. unlike any of my other knives the edge of my mini bugout has developed a few small chips. Also the pivot keep loosening up even after applying copious amounts of blue Loctite and tightening it. even though functionally a little blade-play side to side is not the end of the world I still expect more. If you dont mind a little blade play then I would say this knife could definitely work.
great for EDC

My first Bug Out and it's an awesome EDC knife! I have small hands and at times I feel like it's a tad small, but it disappears in the pocket. Sometimes I have to double check my pockets to make sure it's still there! Razor sharp out the box and the opening action is really smooth. Looking forward to getting the full size at some point

I bought this for my fiancée and she loves it. The lightness, the smaller size and deep seat pocket clip fits perfectly for women’s shallower pockets. All this and it still has a useful blade size. She got the stormtrooper color combo and loves it. Thank you Blade HQ!
Perfect EDC!

I own a Bugout (and many other knives in similar sizes) and I admit, I do love my Bugout. When the mini came out I was interested right away because I had been thinking a shorter knife would be a nice EDC and not take up as much space in the pocket. So I picked one up and haven't looked back. I even went a step further and installed the Flytanium jade scales.

I was looking for a high-quality, light weight EDC, and this fits the bill perfectly. Like other reviewers have noted, it's so light weight that you forget it's in your pocket. I purchased the version with the white scales (the "Stormtrooper" version), and my only concern is that the white scales will more readily show dirt with time and use. I'm seeing a slight amount of that after about a week of use, so I will likely swap out the scales at some point.

Just got my white Mini Bugout today. I love it, it disapears in pocket even more than the regular Bugout did. It's my new Edc for a while. I really hope there will be more colors to choose from in the near future. That is the only reason I gave it four stars, just not crazy about the colors we had to choose from but love it anyway.

I pre ordered the White Mini Bugout back in January and have been informed it's on its way. Based on the Bugout in olive green that I already own, I'm sure to be a Very Happy Camper!!!!! Noticed that it is already out of stock in white from your store. So Sorry to the Poor Fellas that did not pre order :(
