ERIC JACKSON X BENCHMADE
Even though he's best known for creative and powerful backcountry snowboarding, Eric Jackson isn't defined by his day job. "I couldn't live without fishing. If I didn't have that in my life, it would be much less exciting.” With his Bugout clipped to his waders, we joined Eric on his day off at his favorite fishing spot.
ERIC'S KNIFE STORY
Eric's approach to life is fluid, "There are so many areas in fishing and snowboarding where you have to adapt to what you are given." From adjusting fly patterns on the riverbank after an unproductive morning, to quickly dislodging a tree branch tangled in his boat's intake, Eric trusts his Bugout to keep his day on track.
HIS, FOR LIFE
“I want to be remembered for who I am, and who I am is someone who just wants to live a simple life,” Eric claims as his fly swirls in the current. But the things he wants to pass down, aren’t really things at all, “It’s important to keep your values alive, and share them with a new generation.” Whether that’s a trade, a skill, or a passion, handing down knowledge isn’t enough, it has to be passed along with your own character intact.
The New Bugout features our new CF-Elite handle technology, a revolutionary composite that's both lighter and more rigid than any handle we've ever crafted. When you're tackling a job as precise as trimming streamers or fishing line on a rocking boat, you'll be glad you have a knife that feels more like a scalpel than a cleaver.
