Benchmade 275SBK Adamas Folder With Black Handle, ComboEdge
The Benchmade 275SBK 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.
Along with symmetrical blood grooves, the partially serrated blade features a flat primary bevel and a secondary bevel with a swedge to aid in piercing.
The black blade is contrasted by the black G-10 handles. Machined grooves and three circular cutouts offer a secure grip when wielding this hard-use knife.
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 275SBK Adamas is a knife that won't disappoint.

Benchmade Knife Company, Inc. set-up shop in Clackamas, Oregon in 1990 (originally founded in California in 1988). The initial knives primarily consisted of the Bali-Song knives, using a combination of outside vendors and inside processing to build finished products. And like most companies, starting out meant scarce money and big plans, using second hand equipment and limited resources.
Soon, a natural born fortitude and an undying passion to make it right and make it Benchmade, prospered into significant growth. As the product line grew so did the in-house capabilities. We began to acquire new machines and technologies including the first of several lasers, making Benchmade the first knife manufacturer to have such equipment in-house. Open minds and positive attitudes would lead to several more industry firsts over the course of the next several years.
This was only the beginning of Benchmade's breaking of new ground in the manufactured knife markets by using non-traditional materials and modern manufacturing methods in not only building knives better but, inevitably building better knives. The Designer Series was first introduced in 1991 with several custom designs being manufactured. By tapping into the custom knife makers' knowledge and combining it with our manufacturing expertise we were more readily able to offer more contemporary knife designs and innovations to the knife users.
Consecutive years of aggressive growth led to the next logical step in 1996 when Benchmade moved into its own 35,000 sq. ft. facility. A contemporary styled building complete with all of the modern equipment and amenities necessary to manufacture what has become recognized as a higher standard of specialty cutlery.
Today, Benchmade Knife Company, Inc. manufactures knives for a loyal and ever growing following of knife users. As we move into the 21st century we are poised for even more exciting opportunities, innovations and ongoing total world-class quality. Here at Benchmade we employ a simple philosophy- "Make it cool, make it solid, make it happen and definitely make it Benchmade."
