When it comes to best everyday carry knives of all time, only a few knives can stake the claim, including the Spyderco Paramilitary 2, CIVIVI Elementum, and the Kershaw Leek.

The latest Knife of the Week has quickly gained a spot on that coveted list.

The Benchmade Bugout is a lightweight folder with a simple yet effective design that disappears in your pocket until you need it.

Its blade is a functional 3.24 inches long and made from S30V stainless steel with a satin finish.

The magic of the knife is in its Grivory handle scale that cuts the weight to a mere 1.95 ounces. Benchmade’s famous AXIS lock allows the knife to slim out even more while being as reliable and easy to use as ever.

While the Benchmade Bugout is now available in different color ways, the original blue scale model with blue anodized thumb studs remains highly attractive.

The Bugout comes with a low-profile deep carry pocket clip that further emphasizes the slimness and compact nature of the knife.

If you’re looking for the ultimate EDC for the modern adventurer, the Bugout is a no-brainer.
