Oregon City, OR – Benchmade announced the release of the Benchmade 537 Bailout. Benchmade tells us, “The slim and ultralight design of the Bailout offers users an optimal strength-to-weight ratio.” As an added bonus, during the pre-order period SMKW is adding a free Benchmade cleaning cloth with every pre-order of the 537.
At about two ounces the Benchmade 537 Bailout is a light weight manual folder that is the epitome of everything you love about a Benchmade. It has a 3.38” CPM-3V tactical gray Cerakote finished tanto tip. It’s available with either a serrated or plain edge blade. The 0.09” thick blade opens with either ambidextrous thumbs or the AXIS lock.
The handles are what really stand out on this knife. Only 0.41”, the black Grivory handles are slim and great looking. They also house an ambidextrous tip-up mini-deep carry pocket clip.
For increased lock up security, the AXIS lock also has a DLC coated titanium lock bar. Finally, this knife has an aluminum pommel with a lanyard slot.
