533 MINI BUGOUT KNIFE
The result of overwhelming feedback, the Bugout has been scaled down in the form of the new 533 Mini Bugout. Available in two different colorways, the Mini Bugout maintains the same material configuration as its full-sized counterparts in a 1.5 oz package. With a closed length of 3.7”, this ultralight folder is small enough for a mint tin, yet big enough for adventure.
Why we love it:
Many of our knife connoisseurs are already familiar with the quality and popularity of Benchmade knives. For those of you that are newer to the market, say hello to my little friend! The 1.5 ounce Mini Bugout. This simplistic, slender, liner-lock everyday carry is perfect for anyone who needs a razor-sharp tool that is hardly noticeable in their pocket. The Mini Bugout features the classic, high quality S30V stainless steel with a drop point blade. The handle material is a tough, durable thermoplastic Grivory, and has a short deep-carry pocket clip for subtlety on-the-go. Another great appeal to all Benchmade products is their Life-Sharp guarantee, which means your ultra-light companion can be sent in for professional cleaning and sharpening for life. I am happy to have picked up this new favorite of my collection and plan to take it with me on many future backpacking trips.

When the Benchmade Bugout hit shelves it literally took over the Every-Day-Carry category of pocketknives, and its easy to see why. Aesthetically it's beautiful, has an amazing steel (S30V), utilizes benchmades ever popular axis-lock, and is astonishingly lightweight. What could Benchmade possibly do to make this knife any better? Well, in comes the MINI- Bugout! Same look, same steel, same lock, but in a smaller more concentrated package. I thought I had found my absolute go-to EDC in the standard Bugout. But alas, it was surpassed with the miniature version. Benchmade has done it again!
