The 535 Bugout knife is built with a blue Grivory handle and a satin finished blade with a plain cutting edge.

The Benchmade Bugout offers a lightweight, ergonomic build designed with everyday carry and general outdoor use in mind. Its high-performance CPM-S30V blade sports a partial swedge to provide a finer point, and comes fitted with blue anodized dual thumb studs for easy one-handed operation. The comfortable Grivory handle has been textured on either side for added grip without being abrasive. Comes complete with an oversized lanyard hole and reversible deep-carry clip.

This model knife is also available (order only) with a part serrated blade (B535S).


  • CPM-S30V blade steel for excellent edge retention, corrosion resistance, and cutting performance.
