They say an ounce in the morning is a pound by the evening. And whether you’re going out for a hike or just a stroll around the block, having an EDC that won’t weigh you down is important. Keeping your carry light can be hard, especially since plenty of quality tools use plenty of metal, which isn't exactly light. But the new Benchmade Bugout 535 brings the elusive ultralight EDC setup that much closer. Weighing in at less than two ounces, this knife combines quality materials to achieve a super lightweight design that doesn’t skimp out on functionality either.

The Bugout 535 was made with an emphasis on outdoor use, which just so happens to also check all the boxes when it comes to an EDC knife. The Grivory handle mixed with the high quality CPM-S30V stainless steel blade means this knife is as tough as it is light. CPM-S30V is known for its hardness and edge retention so it’ll last longer with little maintenance, and even longer if you take care of it well. The use of Grivory, a durable synthetic polymer, helps shave weight when every gram counts.

Dual thumb studs and a symmetric handle make one-handed deployment a breeze whether you’re using your right or left hand and the signature Benchmade AXIS lock definitely helps its case. Not to mention that it’s just a strong lock to have on such a light knife meant to be used outdoors. The reversible deep-pocket clip is just the icing on top, providing multiple ways to carry comfortably and discreetly.

If you’re looking to add a lightweight knife to your carry but don’t want to to sacrifice functionality, the Bugout 535 is a slick option. This knife was made for the outdoors but has all the makings of a quality EDC knife, so if you want to add it to your carry make sure to hit up the link below.

This 535 looks like a great addition to anyone's EDC. Small knives are deceptively useful.
My friend and I have this knife https://www.heinnie.com/fallkniven-u4 and at less than 1oz (22g). skinned a deer in Scotland. It lives up to its nicknames of Wolf's tooth and Bear Claw.
Half-sized liners again?
Really like this, but wish the handle was either black or grey.
One consideration is if you drop it from your treestand, it will be easy to find again! Been there done that.
Yeah, I imagine that's why they did this in a different color. But, mine would mostly be used in an urban setting.
This is at the top of my wish list! Thanks for highlighting such a great new product.
