Benchmade recently launched their popular Mini Bugout folding pocket knife in new colors.
In addition to the usual black and blue handles, the Benchmade Mini Bugout is now available with red, purple, and light blue handle scales.
Specifically, the new colors are Mesa Red, Alpine Glow, and Sea Foam.
The Benchmade Bugout is a popular EDC knife that’s prized for its… well, I’m actually not sure why it’s so extremely bestselling. I have a Bugout, and it is a good knife, but I like the Mini Bugout better. I’d really prefer something in the middle.
The Mini Bugout has a 2.82″ blade length, 6.49″ open length, and 3.7″ closed length. It weighs 1.5 oz.
The CPM S30V stainless steel blade material is a premium powdered steel alloy, the handle is grippy and comfortable, and the Axis lock is as good as the Benchmade mini Griptilians I’ve owned for years.
It’s a very average knife. I’d prefer it with a thumb hole like my mini-Grip, but the thumb studs on both Bugout sizes are alright.
Maybe that’s why it’s so popular with others – the Bugout is a somewhat utilitarian design. Personally I think I’d prefer a little more flair for what it costs, which is something I don’t believe I’ve ever said about a folding knife before.
If you’ve been looking to buy a Bugout, more color options are always good.
The full-size Bugout is available in different color options at KnivesShipFree and other dealers.
