The Benchmade Adamas line of folders was designed by custom knife maker Shane Sibert in collaboration with Major Jeff Strueker of the US Armed Forces. Major Strueker is a decorated war veteran who served in the armed forces from 1987-2011, mostly in the 75th Ranger Regiment, and is a huge fan of Benchmade knives. Now offered in a fully automatic version, the Auto Adamas has the same robust construction with the added benefit of lightening fast automatic deployment. This version comes with a gray Cerakote coated, CPM Cruwear blade and Sand tan G10 handle scales.
Brand new, direct from Benchmade, USA.
Blade: The utilitarian drop point blade has been upgraded with ultra tough CPM Cruwear tool steel with mid-height saber grind for balanced performance and durability. The blade is finished with a durable, corrosion resistant and non-reflective poly-ceramic gray Cerakote. A plain cutting edge offers clean slicing and ease of sharpening in the field. Fast, automatic and ambidextrous deployment is achieved with a simple pull of the AXIS lock bar.
Handle: Machined, sand tan G10 handle scales are attached to skeletonized black oxide stainless steel liners offering a tough build and generous grip for even the largest gloved hands. Milled holes and strategic jimping enhance traction in the hand. Tough and reliable, the ambidextrous AXIS lock is simple to operate even with gloves. A slide safety prevents unintentional deployment and disengagement of the lock. A generous hole is provided for lanyard attachment.
Carries via a reversible, tip-up stainless steel deep carry clip or heavy duty Black Nylon MOLLE sheath.
Benchmade donates a portion of the proceeds to the Ranger Assistance Foundation which provides assistance to family and friends of men killed or wounded in action from the US Army's 75th Ranger Regiment.
CPM-Cru-Wear: is a tool steel toughness approaching that of CPM 3V with edge retention comparable to CPM S30V/S35VN.
