    Have carried and used one daily for 6 months. Just bought two more-one for son-in-law's birthday. Love the blade. Absolutely LOVE the lack of weight.

    BTW-is it true the Axis lock is one of the strongest made?

    I like the Bugout too, but I prefer the ergo’s of the PM3 LW. There’s just something about that finger choil and thumb ramp. Having said that, the Bugout is quite the compelling package and I couldn’t fault anyone for picking one up.

    Been carrying a Bugout almost exclusively for over 2 years now. It stopped any sort of "rotation" for me. I wouldn't mind holding one of those 3" models they're coming out with although I think the original Bugout is about the perfect size to handle a lot of different jobs.

    The Bug out is a great lightweight knife. Great choice for EDC.

    Love my Bugouts. The blue one is my main edc for the last few months but I recently got a Bailout so I've been carrying that for the last few days. I also rotate a couple of other knives just to mix it up.

    *Edit*
    The Axis lock is about twice as strong as a frame/liner lock. The patent ran out so there are some knife makers coming out with their own version of the Axis Lock.
