First Thoughts...Initial Impressions: Huge, there's no other way for me to put it. This is one big knife. Right out of the box it's obvious the Adamas is designed for some heavy duty work.
Packaging: Slide open box that's a touch too small for the knife and accessories - there's a bulge on one end due to the sheath.
Accessories: Nice quality nylon carry sheath, with a snap enclosure system. Molle compatible, but I don't really see a way you can set it up for belt carry. There was a plastic strap in the box, which could probably be used to adapt the pouch for belt carry, but it's not very intuitive.
Documentation: Laminated, multi page booklet that details pretty much everything you might want to know about Benchmade (the company) or the Adamas knife.
Observed Quality: Excellent. There wasn't anything not exactly the way it should have been.
Sharpness: Razor. Neither paper nor arm hair stood a chance.
Speed of Deployment: Fast. Not only does the blade deploy quickly, it also does so with purpose.
Solidity of Lockup: Very. The blade locks into place with authority. Downward pressure does almost nothing. This knife seems designed for abuse.Blade Wobble When Deployed: Almost nothing. Because of this knife's intended use I applied more force to the left/right movement then I do with most, yet in spite of that the blade barely moved.
Feel: Excellent. G10 always struck me as a heavy duty combination of rubber and plastic, taking the best attributes of both and doing away with their respective drawbacks. Benchmade's interpretation is no exception; grippy and easy on the hand, yet not the least bit slick.
Size: Large. Very large. This is probably not an EDC knife for most folks - myself included - but when you want to 'kick it up a notch' the Adamas is a good option.
Impressions: Sizable. Hefty. Serious.
Clip Strength: Very good. Maybe too much so, because getting it in or out of your pocket takes some doing. The clip is thinner then I expected it to be, given how beefy this knife is, but it feels strong in spite of that.Carry Options: Tip up or down, right or left side. There is also a MOLLE compatible pouch.
Value: Good. A pocket knife that costs over $200 is a tough sell, for most of us anyway, but can such a thing actually be a good value? In this case I think it can because you get a lot for your money.
Buy Again: Most likely. It turned out to be larger then I anticipated, which is the only part that gives me pause.
Overall Assessment: Make no mistake about it, this is not a knife for the dainty. It's big, bold and brash. The blade is large, made from D2 steel that's over an 1/8" thick and carries a ridiculously high hardness rating of 60-62 RC. The handle feels like it's from a fixed blade knife instead, and it even has steel liners underneath the G10 handles. All the jimping is placed where it should be, easy on the skin yet functions perfectly. A no holds barred knife, for sure.
