Benchmade Unveils A More Compact, EDC-Friendly, Top-Shelf Adamas Folder

Mar 4, 2021

First released in 2012, the Adamas has long been a key staple in Benchmade’s lineup, lauded by both military personnel and EDC enthusiasts alike for the Shane Sibert-designed blade’s immense utility and insanely durable nature. In addition to already offering a fixed blade model, as well as regular and automatic folding variants, Benchmade has now revealed a more compact version of the knife with the new 273 Mini Adamas.

On top of the truncated size, the Mini Adamas also now features a top-shelf CPM-CruWear steel drop point blade with a 63-65 HRC rating and now measures 3.25”, slightly down from the full-sized Adamas’ 3.78” item. Though smaller, the 237 is still a full-size knife at 7.62” (when open), however, it’s noticeably more pocketable and EDC-friendly than the regular 8.89” 275 models. Thus far, the Oregon City outfit is offered the 273 in two different color options, with the first being a matte-finish earth blade paired with OD green G10 scales with black hardware, and the second being an all-black variant with black G10 handles and a special, lightly-textured tungsten grey-Cerakote coating. Slated for a release next month, the EDC-friendly Benchmade 273 Mini Adamas is priced at $250.
