I carry this all the time and don't ever feel the weight of a heavy knife. Had it with me on a recent moose trip and used it on my bull. Started sharp and finished sharp!

Was looking at the knife for about two months and decided on getting it. Out the box was surprisingly light and sharp! I work in a tire manufacturing plant so the blue handle is a good feature because I don’t have to worry about loosing it. Only thing I would change is have the blade coated so I don’t have to keep cleaning it because I want it to last as long as possible. For the price you can’t beat it since it is a benchmade.

I broke down and bought this,little Gem fro Blade HQ. the ranger green model. It is a handsome little devil and a great light weight edc knife. A knife for a bugout situation, I think I would prefer something more substantial. But then again the first task I used it for it held up just fine. I had to dismantle and cut down a huge box that a recent car top purchase had plopped down in my living room. This box was sturdy and big and had hidden industrial sized staples hidden throughout the box. The little Bugout handled it well, I did manage to roll a bit,of the edge when I found a hiding staple, a big staple at that. A quick few swipes of the Spyderco sharp maker fixed edge and brought it back to sharp.

I was a little hesitant about buying this knife as the price seemed a bit steep for the materials used. My fears were for not this is a solid knife and well constructed with no blade play and fairly centered. I love how it just slips into my pocket and disappears with no discernible weight. I liked how it tackled the large box without any problems and I was not being gentle with the knife.

Ok Benchmade I really,like this,knife and,it has been riding in my front pocket since I purchased it a couple of weeks ago. The blade shape is outstanding and as such I have a request. Make a super bugout. Lengthen the blade to 3.5 inches, run the steel liners down the length of the handle? Put a set of green Micarta scales on it and beef the width of the blade a bit... that would be a bugout knife for sure and betmit would sell li,e crazy.oh and change the steel to either CPM S35V or CPM M4and you wont be able to keep it in stock?

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.
