The slim and ultralight design of the 537 BAILOUT offers users an optimal strength-to-weight ratio. Black Grivory handles and a CPM-3V 8.59cm/3.38in long Tanto blade complete a package that cuts weight while maintaining durability. At 58.4g/2.05oz and 20.50cm/8.07in overall length, the BAILOUT is designed to be a workhorse without adding bulk to a loadout kit.
The black handle and tactical grey Cerokote combine to create a knife that will remain low profile with a minimal reflective profile but have a very nice aesthetic colour contrast. It includes the company's MAXIS lock mechanism with DLC coated titanium lock bar.
Benchmade approached the development of this knife with the same weight saving mentality that went into the BUGOUT, with the added goal of a creating a model that would be up to the challenge of harder tasks. The handle size is slightly larger, with an added flare guard, to accommodate gloved hands and prevent sliding up the handle. Closed length of the BAILOUT is 11.96cm/4.71 inches. Open, the BAILOUT is .06” longer than the BUGOUT and weighs only 0.20oz more.
Added extras include the reversible tip-up mini-deep carry pocket clip and an aluminium pommel with lanyard slot.
