Benchmade 375BK-1 Fixed Adamas Cobalt Black Cruwear Tactical Fixed Blade
The Benchmade Adamas line of knives 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 fixed blade version of the popular platform comes with a matte black 'Cobalt' Cerakote coated, CPM Cruwear blade and handle.
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 Cobalt black Cerakote. A plain cutting edge offers clean slicing and ease of sharpening in the field. A jimped thumb ramp and prominent index guard provide optimal control and security in use.
Handle: Skeletonized for traction and weight reduction, the full tang handle offers a tough build with a minimal carry footprint. Milled holes and strategic jimping enhance traction in the hand. Paracord wrap can be added for enhanced comfort and traction with minimal increase to weight and thickness. Generous holes are provided for lanyard attachment.
Carries via a molded polymer sheath with small Malice clips and 550 cord.
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.
