Benchmade 273GY-1 Mini Adamas Gray Cruwear Black G10 AXIS Lock Folder
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. This Mini version of the popular AXIS lock platform is more compact for daily carry while retaining its tank like durability. This version comes with a gray Cerakote coated, CPM Cruwear blade and black 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. Dual thumb studs allow for fast or controlled deployment to meet the situation at hand.
Handle: Machined, black G10 handle scales are attached to skeletonized black oxide stainless steel liners offering a tough build in a more compact and lighter weight platform for ease of carry. 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 generous hole is provided for lanyard attachment.
Carries via a reversible, tip-up stainless steel deep carry clip.
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. While it is a tool steel the chromium content makes it semi-stainless and corrosion resistance should be at or above that of D2.
