    The liners and pivot can take it. We tested this. The blade bent under heavy load. Then...we just bent it back :D. Mechanism remained in tact.

    Isn’t this basically an opposing bevel Triage in 3V, minus the safety hook & glass breaker with colorful Boost scales?

    Somehow this knife seems pointless....

    Plus better handle ergonomics, tip is angled for scraping and its an assisted opener...

    I’m surprised Benchmade didn’t merely add those features to the Triage, which was a 4 in 1 tool and geared towards rescue applications. That would have been great! This is a 2 in 1 tool where if used for rescues applications, I’d now need to carry a separate safety hook and separate glass punch. I’m really not sure who the intended user is for this model.

    Mechanics for the most part. Not first responders for sure.

    Respectfully, that will definitely not be true. Non knife enthusiasts aren't buying any knife for $161.50 (85% of that $190 retail price), never mind something they want to beat on.

    I agree with you that it's nice Benchmade is not afraid to try new things, though.

    I get the prying thing, but why on earth did you pick a nonadjustable pivot? A knife that is likely to do prying is also likely to loosen up. It certainly didn’t need to assisted opening for a knife meant to be a tool first and foremost.

    Looks like they took an angle grinder to the tip.

    They should incorporate a level into the blade ,and a stud finder

    The mechanism may have remained intact but how much side to side play developed due to the strain?

    I've actually been discussing new Benchmades recently with a friend of mine over the last little while and he brought up that given how Benchmade has been releasing a lot of new variations of their current knives recently (the new-look tactical triage, the M4 "Super Freek", the Bailout which is a slightly larger and slightly different Bugout in my eyes, the Gold class Bugout which is obviously another Bugout and now the new 3V blunt-tip boost), they should revisit the Adamas and give it the 3V treatment, given that Benchmade seems to stumbled into fair amount of it; I couldn't agree more! I've never owned an Adamas, but I've come close to buying it in the past and a fresh take on that classic in a different steel would probably finally push me to buy one.

    I own and absolutely love my admas......but an adamas in a “supersteel”????? Why, yes. Yes I think that would do just fine

    Adamas is a fantastic knife, i say grab one even in its current steel it's tried and tested true. A new Adams 2.0 with a stonewashed uncoated blade in a new steel would be great.

    New models seem to be taking a beating. This one isn't for me - a 3v sheepsfoot might be though. Micarta scales please. :)

    You down with that @Cypress ?
