The Benchmade 535SBk-2 Bugout is a new take on the classically designed drop-point everyday carry knife. At 7.46" in overall length and weighing in at just 1.8oz, this knife might be small, but it certainly holds its own. Made from CPM-S30V stainless steel, this already hard steel (HRC 58-60) is also DLC coated for added protection against marring and corrosion. Diamond-like carbon coating bonds carbon molecules directly to the steel at an atomic level, giving it a thin layer of protection that increases the outside hardness of the steel while protecting it. This blade stock has been sharpened down from .090" stock down to a razor's edge, which holds its sharpness cut after cut.
The blade deploys from its 4.22" long CF-Elite handle with the aid of ambidextrous thumb studs. It locks securely into place with the ubiquitous Benchmade AXIS locking device. A reversible steel spring clip gives you a deep pocket carry and a generous lanyard hole allows for other carry options and applications with the use of paracord. Excellent for tactical, first response, or EDC use, this knife comes in black and features a limited warranty against materials and workmanship. Benchmade knives are proudly made in the USA.
