Benchmade 537 Bailout Folding Knife

Mar 28, 2019

In the everyday carry community, we’ve come to terms with the idea that — a lot of the time — lightness of weight must be sacrificed if we want premium materials. The folks at Benchmade, however, don’t think we should be so easily satisfied. As a result, they’ve introduced their 537 Bailout folding knife.

Marked by aggressive styling — e.g. an all-black colorway, angular CPM-3V tanto blade (available with a straight or combination edge), and Grivory handle scales — this is a gorgeous tactical folder. But the styling of this 8.07″ knife is betrayed by its insanely lightweight construction, tipping the scales at only 2.05oz. Yet the brand is claiming that weight-saving does not sacrifice functionality — making this a formidable everyday carry cutting tool. Whether you’re chomping at the bit to get your hands on one or you just want to see what all the fuss is about, it can soon be yours for $170.

Purchase: $170
