The Benchmade Bugout has become a massively popular option in the EDC folding knife market and it is easy to see why. The Bugout is extremely lightweight, slim, boasts an S30V blade, locks up via an Axis Lock, has a versatile blade shape, deep carry clip, and is at the low end of the Benchmade cost spectrum. I have recommended it to a number of people and the only real hangup has been the color. The Bugout has only been available in BRIGHT BLUE… until now.
Blade HQ is now offering an exclusive version of the Bugout with a more subdued palette. The handle is Ranger Green. The blade is coated smoked gray chromium nitride finish and most of the hardware is coated black. Some hardware, like the thumb stud and back spacers are anodized tan.
If you love the size, weight, and features of the Bugout but have been holding out for something more subdued in appearance, check out the Ranger Green Benchmade Bugout at Blade HQ (available to pre-order now).
An excellent heads up…thanks! I have been on the fence about this knife for a while. Looks nice but I wasn’t crazy about the color. Problem solved.
The Bugout is a GREAT EDC knife. I have two of them…a blue and a black one. (A black one?? Yes…RIT dye does wonders. Check out BladeForums.com). I’m liking the Ranger Green. Thanks for the better pic than what they have on BladeHQ.
Just an FYI, it’s not a BladeHQ Exclusive. My local Benchmade dealer has em.
