Titanium Critter Scales for Benchmade Bugout 535 - Right Hand Carry
Inspired by the creepy crawlers, the critter pattern provides additional traction and the TI provides better rigidity compared to the stock handle. Due to the aggressive pocketing, the knife weighs under 3oz providing a good balance between weight and strength.
- Required backspacer with newer model: 535-1901+
Made out of grade 5 titanium, knife and hardware not included. Please allow 3-5 business days to process. Please message for left-hand carry.
This is my third pair of bugout critter scales from RSD. Quality and fit and finish is second to none. Buy them, you won’t regret it
stoked on this second set.. we’ll see what other knife I get scales for
It's amazing what a difference it has made to my bugout by adding the Ti critter scales. Feels like a totally different, dare I say, much more expensive knife. The scales that came on the bugout felt cheap and flimsy and overall I wasn't happy with how lightweight the knife felt. Adding the critter scales makes it slightly heavier, but in a good, more solid way. Highly recommend.
More than the price of the bugout itself, but man does it make this knife beautiful. Completely changes it. Great craftsmanship and fit perfectly. Well worth the money.
These scales take a good budget knife and make it an amazing mid-level knife. They also double the price, but imo a customized Bugout I can flog on is a much better EDC than a Sabenza (or similar) that I'm worried about chipping the blade on.
The finish on the scales is smooth and luxurious, but not slick or slippery. 10/10.
