If you’ve never held or used a Bugout before, it comes with a fair share of features that have contributed to its success as one of the most popular EDC pocket knives. The 3.24“ blade with a 3” cutting edge and versatile drop point shape comes straight from the original 535’s design, as is its use of Benchmade’s iconic AXIS lock for ease of use, secure lockup, and ambidextrous operation. On the 535-3 CF, this blade is executed in top-tier CPM-S90V steel, best known for its excellent edge retention and corrosion resistance. Its dual thumb studs come in Benchmade’s signature blue, and the edge itself is hair-popping sharp right out of the box. While there have been aftermarket carbon fiber handles for the Bugout before, on the 535-3 CF they come stock and contoured for exceptional comfort–no sharp edges, no hotspots. The nature of carbon fiber also allows these handles to be sturdy and rigid while remaining lightweight. The original 535 Bugout has cemented its place in EDCer’s pockets, and now the 535-3 CF sees it in one of its best forms yet. Pick up this premium iteration of one of the best knives you can carry at the link below.
