    Whoa. Real DLC is nice! Mini Bugout is fun! But why does the Bailout get the M4 and not the DLC Bugout?!?

    I'm guessing because they tend to use M4 in the more "tactical" knives and the Bailout is a "tactical" Bugout. Just my wild guess though.

    I hope there's more new stuff coming than just what's listed, I see way too many polymer handles for my liking.

    It is nice to see a new collaborator, I don't think Jared Oeser has done anything with Benchmade before, hopefully they have a few more models from him lined up.

    M4 and aluminum is much preferable to under heat treated 3v and plastic.

    I was thinking similar. I kind of wonder if they will run the M4 soft though. I sure hope not, it would kill the reason for having it. Might as well just raise the hardness on the 3V.

    I like the idea of the mini bugout, makes it legal for me to carry more places. And orange is a nice color option.

    Benchmade does a good job with their M4.

    For legal reasons I see how the Mini-Bugout makes sense. I would like a larger Bugout!

    It seems like the majority of the new knives have polymer handles, that seems like a major step back to me.

    Hopefully there's a few more that aren't listed yet.

    Mediator looks really cool. Like an auto 940.

    Well I’m guessing they weren’t supposed to reveal those because they have all been taken down. :(

    Benchmade's plan - Introduce a model. If it does well raise the price and introduce the mini at the price of the old one. LOL

    Ya I would so be in on a larger one as well. Not saying the bugout isn't a nice size but a bigger one would be a welcomed addition to my collection. Wouldn't mind having something to help fill the freaks roll in the right pocket.

    A bigger buyout would be amazing.
