The Bugout AXIS lock folder from Benchmade Knives was built to be one of the toughest, lightest folders in its class to go anywhere you do. Extremely slim, ergonomic and made with high quality materials at an outstanding price point the Bugout is an excellent everyday carry choice. This premium version has been upgraded with a black DLC coated, M390 blade, milled and gray anodized aluminum handles and red accents.

Brand new, direct from Benchmade Knives, USA.

Blade: A classic drop point profile provides excellent overall utility at work or in the field with a tapering top swedge to refine the point. Bohler M390 offers premium performance with excellent edge retention and corrosion resistance which is further enhanced by the durable, black Diamond-Like Carbon coating. The DLC finish is non-reflective for discreet use. Smooth, ambidextrous operation is achieved via the dual, red anodized aluminum thumb studs paired with rugged phosphor bronze washers.

Handle: Gray anodized aluminum handle scales are milled for style and traction and add some heft and rigidity while keeping the knife lightweight for carry. Red anodized aluminum barrel spacers add a pop of color completing the easy-to-clean construction. An oversized pommel hole allows for lanyard attachment while the DLC coated titanium lock bar gives the AXIS lock smooth, solid and reliable performance.

Carries via a reversible (tip-up), mini, stainless steel deep carry clip with black oxide finish.

Bohler M390: Bohler M390 has become an extremely popular choice for high-end, user grade knives thanks to its high level edge retention and exceptional corrosion resistance making it very low maintenance. It also resists burr formation for greater ease of sharpening. Comparable steels are CTS-204P and CPM-20CV.
