Learn more about the new Battlewash™ Finish

Haven't found a Bugout colorway that suits you yet? Well, Benchmade has got another flavor up their sleeve to throw in the mix and we're very excited for this finish. The 535BK-1903 is their first knife to features their Battlewash handle finish, in addition to matching red accents on the thumb studs and barrel spacers. It's as if the knife is completely red but on top is a black coating that is starting to wear and allow the red to poke through. This is similar to Spyderco's Zome finish and it completely transforms the look of the brand new handle and it will only get better with age. This KnifeCenter Exclusive is available with a CPM-S30V blade in either black Cerakote or satin finish.

A bit shocking
This is a sweet little knife. It looks incredible (in fact my wife decided she liked it...which means she now has it). It is the perfect length and weight. I was very, very, impressed. That is, until I used it. I have many Axis locks and luckily haven’t had many problems with them. This model was the exception. The Axis lock stuck sideways when I was deploying it. The lock also feels very gritty. I was so shocked my mouth dropped open for a minute. I am now a bit wary of this knife. I don’t know what happened here but I notice another low rating for a similar problem.

Must buy
I had been sitting on the fence on the bugout. I wanted one but it just didn’t quite do it for me. In comes this model. It was a instant buy as soon as I saw it. It tipped the scale to “must buy”.

Awesome lightweight knife
This is a great lightweight blade. It is sharp out of the box and holds an edge very well. I have carried this knife 2-3 days a week for about 6 months and have only had to touch up the edges with a strop. The handle material looks awesome and feels great in the hand. The blade is large and sturdy for a knife that occupies very little pocket space. If you are in the market for a lightweight mid sized folder this is a very good option.
