Benchmade 537 Bailout AXIS Folding Knife 3.38" CPM-3V Gray Cerakote Plain Tanto Blade, Black Grivory Handles
The slim and ultralight design of the Bailout® offers users an optimal strength-to-weight ratio. Black Grivory handles, a tanto CPM-3V blade, and aluminum pommel complete a package that cuts weight while maintaining durability. The Bailout®: Two ounces of confidence to your kit.
Differing from the drop-point blades of the traditional Bugout models, the 537’s blade mimics a Japanese profile tanto, as opposed to the tanto Benchmade has used on models like the Griptillian, AFO II, and Barrage that sport a straight belly and crisp primary bevel. This design was influenced by a desire to embolden the tip strength of the blade while maintaining superior slicing performance. Even with the addition of an aluminum pommel which includes a lanyard slot at the tail end of the handle, the 537 adheres to the 2-ounce precedent set by the Bugout.
