Best Looking of the Bugouts.
I always liked the Bugout for its slim profile and light weight but was always turned off by available color options. The Battlewash Bugout hits the nail on the head in terms of aesthetics by giving it a pre-warn look with a pop of red accents that make this knife fit in with some of my well used gear right away. This knife is perfect for EDC because it disappears in the pocket thanks to its deep carry pocket clip and is ready to go at any moment. Because of the slim lightweight nature of the knife I wouldn't recommend it for any kind of hard use but it is still perfect for any small day to day cutting task. Of course Benchmade's Axis-Lock provides addictive opening and closing action but my favorite thing about this knife knife is that I still get a comfortable 4 finger hold even with such a slim profile. If there is a knock I can really give this knife it's that the edge isn't perfect right out the box but if you have a good sharpening set up you can get the S30V razor sharp no problem.
