I would very much like to get one, but I am NOT paying over $200 for it!!
I have xxl hands and it’s not the best. The bottom of the scale since it flares out isn’t a good fit for me. Love the knife otherwise but mine is gonna be a catch & release unfortunately. I may get the full size one in a few weeks when it’s available.
I have owned a full size Adamas 275 for 6 years but carry it only in the woods. I tend to carry a Griptilian 551 more due to size and weight.
I have been eyeing a Mini Adamas ( along with a mini-grip or mini-bugout).
For those who have already carried the Mini Adamas, is it really a "mini" size? 4.6oz seems a lot for a "mini".
The full size Adamas is indeed a tank and built to take on anything. But I always felt the design wouldn't
lend itself to an EDC even if made smaller. I could of course be totally wrong. Would appreciate people's
experiences and opinions on the size.
What seems to be common with Benchmade knives is having undersized pivots or oversized pivot holes. If you can push/pull your blade towards/away from the pivot itself when the blade is in a position between open and closed, then that's going to result in some play even when it's locked up solidly. I've had a several Benchmades do this and their warranty team won't do a thing about it.
