Featured Product:

Quickly after its inception four years ago, the Bugout Knife family achieved unmatched dominance as the premier ultralight EDC pocket knife. Now, the Bugout is receiving an elite upgrade in the form of the all-new 535-3 model. This new variant is spec’d out with a milled carbon-fiber handle, premium S90V super steel, and signature blue anodized hardware. The gorgeous drop point blade shape, ambidextrous AXIS lock mechanism and lightweight mini deep carry clip are all carried over to this model AND it maintains the oh-so-satisfying ‘pop’ when you flick it open.

The 535-3 Bugout retains the lightweight nature the Bugout family is known for, while pushing performance and design aesthetics to the next level. Still ready for any adventure, but with a designed appearance and materials that are not strictly for the backcountry. And of course, all the notable aspects that set Benchmade apart apply to this model as well… made in Oregon, hand assembled, and a lifetime warranty.

Raised in beautiful but rainy England, Andy moved to the sunny climes of Southern California in 1995 and hasn’t looked back since. Two and half decades working in the outdoor, bike and surf industries has given him a thirst for adventure and living life without a ceiling. When not working on the website, he can be found surfing Californian beaches, or in remote mountain or desert areas, either primitive camping, mountain biking or embarking upon vehicle assisted adventure in the backcountry with one of The Adventure Portal rigs.
