Zombie Proof

This Deeply Discounted Bugout Knife Is Your Best Friend Come the Apocalypse


October 4, 2019 Deals By

As the great Cypress Hill advised, “when tha sh*t goes down, ya better be ready.” And what better way to prep for the end times than with a proper folding knife? The Benchmade Bugout 535 is such a knife. Crafted using American-made CPM-S30V steel, the 3.24-inch drop-point blade boasts excellent edge retention and corrosion resistance. An ergonomic, textured grip, smooth axis locking mechanism and unassuming good looks only add to the appeal.

Closed, this knife is just over 4 inches long and weighs less than 2 ounces, so it’s easy to stash away until zombie-fighting day. Or, you know, a hiking, camping, backpacking or fishing adventure. Or simply as a dependable EDC. Anyway you slice it, so to speak, this knife’s a winner — and right now the blue-handled, plain-edge version is 25 percent off at Amazon.
