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.

badass-benchmade-adamas-sideAlong with symmetrical blood grooves, the blade features a flat primary bevel and a secondary bevel with a swedge to aid in piercing. This version has a straight edge, but it also comes in a partially serrated version.

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.
