I have several Benchmade knives and I like them a lot but once I received the Bugout 535 the first thing I thought was how expensive it is for what you’re getting. I understand Benchmade was going for a lightweight knife but for $160 I just really don’t like the flimsy plastic scales. I’ve already replaced them with aluminum scales , and moving forward any plastic scales on a Benchmade will be a deal breaker for me. As far as EKNIVES goes, they handled the transaction quickly and efficiently and I would not hesitate to buy from them in the future.
I got this knife as a gift for my wife. She loves that it's super lightweight and it's extremely tough and well built. Also, the handle fits her hand perfectly. As for EKnives, they were super fast to ship and were caring enough to include a candy bar and a bandaid. Those little touches made this purchase even better.
First Benchmade and it’s so light but doesn’t feel cheap to me. Won’t be my last.
