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 535BK-4, this blade is executed in a DLC-coated, blacked-out M390 steel, one often found in the highest end of knives offering one of the best edge retentions in the business.

The blade comes with dual maroon thumb studs, offering a striking color hit against the 535BK-4’s monochrome palette. These thumb studs match the maroon barrel standoffs in the handles, departing from the backspacer design of the previous premium Bugout. 6061-T6 aluminum handles are the highlight of this model, offering full metal construction while still keeping the knife as light at possible at 2.5 ounces. They come in a starburst pattern, offering grip as well a sleek new style for the line. And of course, a reversible pocket clip covers the Bugout’s bases for EDC.
