Whenever the word indestructible is bandied about, it’s a gross exaggeration 100% of the time. However, the Benchmade 275 Adamas is as close to indestructible as it gets in the knife world. That’s no coincidence either. Adamas is a Greek word used to describe one of the strongest substances to exist.

The Benchmade 275BKSN Adamas is a heavy-duty folder that is made to not only withstand but excel at any grueling task you throw at it.

Designed by custom knifemaker Shane Sibert, the 275 Adamas features a 3.82-inch blade with a versatile drop point. Because Sibert wanted to make a knife that was worthy enough to be carried into action by this country’s heroes, he used some of the toughest materials out there. As a bonus, Benchmade will donate a portion of the proceeds from this knife to the Ranger Assistance Foundation.

The blade is made from D2 steel, a semi-stainless steel with great wear resistance that holds an edge, and uses Benchmade’s BK coating. The matte black coating helps with corrosion resistance and reduces glare.

The black blade is contrasted by the tan-colored G-10 handles. Machined grooves and three circular cutouts offer a secure grip when wielding this hard-use knife. You can also pick it up with black handles (both a plain version and partially serrated version).

The 275 Adamas uses Benchmade’s patented AXIS-locking mechanism, which only offers additional evidence on the toughness and reliability of the knife.

With near universal acclaim from all types of knife users, the Benchmade 275 Adamas is a knife that won’t disappoint.
