It’s National Knife Day! What better way to celebrate than building the ultimate EDC classic? The original design was for backpacking and the lightweight, slim profile has had a huge impact on the knife industry and community. The Bugout was able to offer full grip, full control, ambidextrous control, dual thumb studs, and the venerated AXIS locking system. It also features a premium blade steel. The Bugout platform is the perfect combination of weight saving, ergonomics, functionality, and style. There are many options and upgrades available for those who want to make theirs stand out. However, these will void the warranty and you cannot upgrade the blade.
By adding the Bugout to the in-house , the brand takes the design to the next level in its evolution. You can now customize the Benchmade online shop to make your knife unique using the finest materials. You can view your customizations live by selecting the Benchmade Bugout Family in the Custom Shop. This interface allows you to rotate 360° and see the design with the blade extended or retract.
Your first choice involves the blade, selecting from a traditional plain-edged Drop Point design or one with partial serrations. Next, and most important, is the blade steel. You can choose between tough, corrosion-resistant CPM S30V or the original. This is a durable and long-lasting option.
CPM-20CV – Two new options are available this year: the ultra-premium and the premium.
S90V – It is important to note that the Damasteel option cannot be used with the serrated knife.
You have the option to add text or choose from a variety of images and logos that Benchmade Custom Shop offers. Or, you can upload your own image to place on your blade. This is something that not all knife personalization companies offer. You can also customize the position and size of your blade markings.
Handles and Hardware
You can choose different colors for both the back and show sides of the knife to create your own unique design. A full-sized version is also available. Two premium options are also available this year: titanium or you can opt for a stealthier option.
You can experiment until you find the right combination for your EDC kit. You can also create a themed version using your favorite colors or materials. You have the option to choose.
Make Your Choice
Prices will vary depending on the combination you choose. The most affordable is $175, while the most expensive is $525. This information will be reflected in a running total every time you make a change to your design. After you are satisfied with your creation, you can share it with friends and/or on social media. Then, click the Buy button to begin the order process.
Because it’s through the official , your own knife will retain the same lifetime warranty and LifeSharp services as any of their regular models. This ensures that your knife is unique and yours for the rest of your life.
