    well i have been talking to a few of you guys for the last few days looking for a benchmade. i was eying down the BM warn barrage but i heard the tanto design isn't executed properly on it so i went with one benchmade i know is tough as nails. i would like to send a big thanks res1cue for pointing me in the best direction to this awesome knife

    the becnhmade 275 adamas by Shane Sibert ordered from GPKNIVES.COM for $125.75

    i really think this might become my new edc displacing my years old cold steel ak47 with the ultra lock, i really love this knife and it will always have a place in my heart but the adamas is mostly likely a higher quality and its made in the usa

    That's a really good price. I paid 165 for my black first production. Although I think it's a very nice knife, it is on the bulky side. To me it lends itself to using the sheath and wearing it on a belt.

    I like my knives on the bulkier side and I was considering the black version but I went with the coyote brown because it's different and I only have 1 knife that doesn't have a black handle

    Nice, I have two Benchmades (Barrage and Mini Onslaught) and love em. definetly an upgrade from the cold steel.

    That is an excellent choice my friend! I have the all black and it has been in my pocket since the end of January. Never have I carried one knife this long, but the 275 is one I can't seem to keep out of my pocket. I have a 275SNBK coming tomorrow and figure it will see some pocket time also.

    that's the black serrated version right.

    hmmm I really like the brown but maybe I should have got the black if it's better

    It's the sand handles and black blade....plain edge. I got the letters backwards, should be 275BKSN. Just got an email that it was shipped out and will be here tomorrow.:thumbup::)

    Congratulations. Fantastic knife. I have one of the black first production ones - but I use it. I'm a big fan. Enjoy it.

    My first Benchmade was the Adamas as well.

    Great folder, but one of my least carried blades I own just because of its bulky size. I do however carry it every time I go to the gun range or hike. A great heavy duty companion! for the price its hard to beat, it has a crazy smooth deployment and absolutely no blade play!

    Congratulations on the new knife! I think you will really like it. I have a few Benchmades and really love them...and most of the folks I know around here are carrying Benchmades on deployments too. Hope you enjoy it.

    great so i am in excellent company. i have wanted a benchmade for a while but never had the cash on hand so when i saw a opportunity arise i grabbed it and to be honest i am using this knife as a replacement since a douche verizon tech came to my house to hook up a new phone line and decided to help himself to my kershaw ET

    but since i am getting this bad-boy i don't mind as much

    I have tried a Benchmade grip and mini grip. Ended up returning them both. Felt cheap in my opinion.

    well they say the griptillians have cheap handles

    Im absolutely sure that the adamas won't feel cheap since it's overbuilt for military use

    That's because the Griptilian's handles are hollow plastic. The Adamas has solid G10 handles, and though I haven't handled one I would imagine they don't feel cheap.
