Bugout™ Family

Product Review (submitted on February 25, 2018):
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.
