These Flytanium Benchmade Bugout Scales are great after-market accessories for the Benchmade Bugout. They are well-fitting scales made by the experts at Flytanium. The great thing about these scales is that Flytanium didn't simply stick to the outer edge of the old scales, and just left it at that. No: there is also a bevelled finger groove for your index finger. And the holes that, for the original pocket knife, are enhanced with a D-shaped hole to prevent the screws from rotating are also nicely shaped like a D with these scales. Not all after-market scales have this!
These scales are made from carbon fibre. Nice and light-weight and sleek in terms of look and feel.
At Flytanium they have been making very good accessories for all sorts of pocket knives for many years. While for many manufacturers this remains a hobby Flytanium specialized and organized so that the Flytanium scales have an excellent reputation worldwide.
Tips for assembly
Assembling new scales or other accessories isn't without risk. Always use fitting screwdrivers and never force anything to prevent damage to screws or scales. We prefer to add a piece of a plastic bag in between the bit and the screw to prevent any damage to the screws. If the screws are stuck, it is important not to force them. Carefully heat them with a hairdryer or tap the back of the screwdriver to break the loctite.
Also check the warranty conditions of the manufacturer before you start: for some brands the warranty expires when you start tinkering with the knife yourself. You add the scales at your own risk. We are not liable for damages that you may cause to the knife or accessory.
