    Did anybody take pics of these before they disappeared on the websites? My curiosity is peaked.

    I found them. Type in a search engine Benchmade 533 and go to images ;) The orange one has a matching orange thumb stud as well. And the white one says dlc which is exciting.

    I hope they dlc all their black blades. Their coating now has gotten better over the years, but it's certainly no dlc.

    About time they learned. Looks like a winner.

    The bronze mini presidio looks pretty sweet too!

    Great find on the pictures. Any idea on what size a mini is?

    You are smarter than me. I literally was googling for it, but did not click on images. Good find!

    Specs are the M4 will be 62-64Rc. My concern is CeraKote over DLC?

    Benchmade released a short clip on Instagram last evening promoting what was coming at Shot today. There was what appeared to be an orange Bugout and a white Bugout.

    Has anyone held a CF elite bugout yet? Do the scales flex less?

    The orange and white Bugouts are minis according to BladeHQ. The white one looks like it is standard issue to Imperial Stormtroopers.

    FYI, I talked with someone at Benchmade, and they said these two colorways are all that will be coming out for a while, unless they're making an exclusive colorway for a dealer, etc.

    I suppose I'm (begrudgingly) getting the orange one – though I love the Stormtrooper comment above LOL.

    I just preordered an orange mini 533 Bugout. I'm excited to try, but I'm also a huge fan of smaller knives and obviously the 535 Bugout. Wonder when these will start shipping? Any idea from last years SHOT show releases?

    Here is a brief review of the Bugout CF Elite 535BK-2.

    Agree. Nice knife to comply to laws, and a nice starter knife for a kid. Bugout is already small and weighs nothing. I don't see other benefits.
