Amazing knife with amazing S30V blade steel. The action is amazing and habit-worthy. I love the weight on this, it disappears in your pocket. I know many people are complaining about the "cheap feel" of the knife but I can assure you that the grivory is durable. It might feel cheap to you but it is an excellent performing knife.

The Bugout is my ideal EDC knife! It is incredibly lightweight which is perfect for days when I have to wear a suit and head into the office.The knife is well constructed and the blade steel is excellent, I really like the blue color of the handle as well as the blue accents on the thumb stud and liner. Deep pocket clip is a big plus for carrying in the office. The handle is the perfect size for my hand, and it truly excels at day to day cutting tasks.

Out of the box the blade was hair shaving sharp and the grind was perfect. The action was just a little stiff, but it was still easy to open and close with one hand.

Overall I would highly recommend this knife for light and medium duty tasks and is perfect for everyday carry.

Its a lightweight knife that does what it can. I wouldn't consider this for anything particularly rugged, but it is excellent for casual use. This knife has EDC all over it, light weight to almost be unnoticeable and a low silhouette to be nice and hidden in the pocket. Also i find the dark blue handle charming and nice to look at. My only complaint is that, while i dont question the quality of this product, the handle FEELS brittle. Not saying that it is, but i remember the first thing in my mind when i took this baby out of the box was "I'm going to break this" But it's taken its place as my favorite EDC knife whether that be to open something at work, get some wood shavings or make some kindling.

I purchased this knife as a hiking/EDC knife. This thing came scalpel sharp out of the box. Benchmade does an awesome job with their S30V steel. It holds an edge for a long time. Even after 6 hours of hammering on this knife it is still able to shave hair. I will say from past experience with S30V steel that it is a bear to sharpen though. The handle on this knife is super comfortable and it fits my large size hands very well. Blade centering is perfect out of the box as well. The bushings in the pivot make the deployment very smooth and the thumb studs are easy to access. Lockup is also extremely solid. All of this combined with the ultra light weight makes this an excellent knife and I strongly recommend it. Watch for my review on my youtube channel (Woodland Warrior) in about a week for more details and in action shots on the Benchmade 535 Bugout. I also have reviews of tons of other knives and gear.

Why dont more manufacturer's make thin bladed knives? Benchmade knocked it out of the park this is the in between griptilian size knife that cuts like a laser. Thank you benchmade i hope you make a larger version too. Please hurry up with the sprints and exclusives. I want a m4,s90v,m390 and my holy grail would be a cpm 3v version with the newest low temp treatment. Delta 3v if you will. I promise you could not keep them in stock. Thanks again benchmade.

Finally got my hands on one and I LOVE this knife. You have got to come out with one utilizing black G10 and M390 steal in the $275.00 price point. You would sell out in no time.

This knife is awesome!
It’s crazy how light it is and yet its strength isn’t compromised. It’s built well, and the blade is fantastic!
Highly recommend you add this to the collection.
Would love to see a G10 option or color options...

Great knife, comes very sharp, carries low in the pocket and the lightweight makes for a forgettable carry knife that is tough and does what it needs to do when you need it.
Four-star rating was for the price.
Blue handle is great and black clip needs to be on every knife.
As mentioned Benchmade you need to make a black handle with a black low carry clip.
