Naperville, do you like the Benchmade Bugout? It looks like a good folder.
Regarding the video, I only have one S30V knife, a Yojimbo 2, which I also have two of in 20CV and CF. Yet, I believe the steel is good, much better than average.
But, I don't think I'm a Benchmade guy. I have 85 knives and just one Benchmade, a Benchmade Barrage in M4 from the Custom Shop. I have a pretty well developed list of at least 250 knives that I want to look at again for purchase, with maybe 50 that I really must have.
The Custom Shop, Benchmade Crooked River, in S90V, with Carbon Fiber Handle, all black hardware (for $330) is the only Benchmade that I feel that I must have. Maybe I'd also buy an Adamas in D2 too. But that is it.
I pretty much wrote off Benchmade after it came out that for years they had been cutting up firearms, and donating to hard core leftists in Oregon. I'm not that political online, I'm no longer on most social media. I'm not on Twitter, Gab, Reddit, Blade Forums ...just Facebook with a few guys that I trained with in martial arts. And, I do not debate politics with my friends (martial artists or other acquaintances) I just feel that with 50 to 250 knives that I want, Benchmade may have to wait to get any money from me for a while. Maybe I'll buy the knives in 2020, we shall see. The Bugout is not on my list of knives to buy.
I do not own any firearms currently, but I STRONGLY support the 2nd Amendment. I am a member of USCCA, GOA, NRA and Knife Rights, and I support Law Enforcement.
