Benchmade 533 Mini Bugout - Manual Folder

6 items left

Brand new is the Benchmade Mini Bugout. This is a very lightweight knife weighing in at only 1.50 ounces.  The blade is a 2.82" drop point made of S30V and locks up solid due to the titanium DLC coated AXIS bar.  The pocket clip is deep carry and a bit shorter than usual for complete concealment. Benchmade finished it off with orange anodized barrel spacers and thumb studs.  This is a great little knife.

Great knife

Love the knife. Upon receipt of this knife, found it had been previously opened, and found fingerprints all over the blade. I purchased this as a new knife, but clearly someone else had opened and handled the blade. This is disappointing, and has made look elsewhere.

Fantastic little pocket knife

If you're a fan of the Bugout and the Bailout, you'll probably love the Mini-Bugout. Yes, it's small, but big enough that I can just get a comfortable four-finger grip on it with my medium-sized hands. Benchmade sometimes gets knocked for QC issues, but the one that I received is dead on - blade is centered, action is very smooth and is set just right, and the lockup is rock solid. As expected, the scales have a very slight amount of flex if you squeeze them hard, but with a compact knife like this, it's totally a non-issue. The deep-carry clip is identical to the one on the Bugout and Bailout. I'm not a super fan of the bright orange scales, but it certainly will be easy to find if you ever drop it! It's a safe bet that Benchmade will release other color variations (besides the orange and white), and aftermarket scales are sure to follow in the near future. This one is a total winner if you're looking for a light and compact EDC knife.
