Hi all! Today is 22th of December 2012 finish of the arena ultimately failed to occurred the day prior to this And it seems to me that it has to be celebrated with a just right difficult Use testing of very important knife on which many anchor hopes Benchmade Adamas Knife is absolutelly new Sharpness out of the field Cuts paracord very quite simply And with out excess phrases let’s start I do not have any cable left, I found some remainders from previous tests to take a look at but after all i do not keep in mind cable as a factor a good way to have an effect on on that how this knive will participate in.Surely it copes with this undertaking now not so handy at all almost like infamous Kel Tec next we now have a can with fruits If any one was once curious what’s within the can there’s some variety of mix from distinct fruits Knife cuts very good, very comfortably As you see i’ve an excellent manipulate that’s it… Analyzing a cutting edge I remind that a blade has D2 steel and looking at the innovative right now I satisfied extra that D2 is just an excellent metal for such difficult duties Kel Tec failed to obtained any signs of damage, and same right here innovative is obviously clean, no crumples or chipping in any respect, nothing. Little marks left on a coating. And now let’s shave aluminum. Shaving very good No questions right here I think not a single drawback used to be brought about via aluminum Little marks on the coating, and that’s it innovative is all correct I mean some severe injury. Of path some dulling is present however in this case it can be particularly immaterial hence sequence of leading edge trying out, this knife passes superb.Now a second of reality – testing a lock Benchmade’s AXIS-Lock i can exhibit you the way it sits on a lockface at the establishing Open it inertially 5 backbone whacks four Holded you’ll find how powerful had been the strikes, in these spots, it was once hit by way of a spine here, these are from previous checks And now five strikes with a entrance aspect Lock is functioning excellent, no play that’s what I call a lock! Some micro play on a blade, vertically and horizontally i will probaly tighten a pivot, yea pivot screw is came unfastened there was no threadlocker there. So what, let’s select a hole in a wooden see how a tip will exhibit itself. Right here it is! Here it’s! That is a pleasure, i’m going to inform you. You just must see this What a vigor it’s, it is just indescribable.To the bone. A little more. I think such hole might be ample to no longer doubt the potential of this knife. This is just something extremely good adequate, let’s now not be completely satisfied too early transfer to punching metal Tin-plate 0.8mm 5 strikes into 0.8mm one can find it just havoced these holes right here. Transfer to whatever more severe – tin-plate 1.0mm looking on the tip N-O-T-H-I-N-G without doubt, undoubtedly nothing in any respect. WOW. Here are 5 strikes: one, two, three, four, 5 these are. Here they are, 5 strikes which i don’t cover, you will discover well Now stainless-steel 1mm What am i able to say, here two holes right here they are , one and an extra one And here is our tip, which again did not felt this absolutelly WOW Let’s chop a little bit for leisure it can be simply an axe, simply real axe good achieved Sibert Batoning now i’m going to baton with V-perspective to cut a portions from here I consider it is very very photograph, here or here And final formality checking the stay sharpness It cuts this paracord comfortably doesn’t do push reduce but aweight even with the very tip – simply cuts paracord And finally a company knife that may define requisites for rough Use not some chinese language knives.With the entire appreciate to them with their fee… But this is the actual level I suppose it was once relatively obvious and that i believe that we’ll need to have a particular talk about this knife Now i’ll just show it in macro here’s our hero, let’s evaluate it closer watching on the leading edge right here, somewhat chipping that i can see but on the major length, in any case these duties within the concrete I don’t know…Due to the fact that what it got here via it is simply an best of innovative Coating rubbed a bit of bit and in 10 minutes it became a fight-professional fighter.Manage does not seems to be affected in any respect. Lock is functioning just right Pivot screw loosened, there’s blade play, that you could hear it I consider it can be fixed, we will discuss it later. D2 metal is strictly what we need Let’s quickly walk although all phases which this knife has handed Opened a can best Shaved aluminum, I want to show intently a surface that’s shaved you can find that it can be now not so handy zero.8mm , these tremendous holes, and right here… 1.0mm, these 5 holes And of path 1.0mm stainless-steel These 2 holes wooden, batoning What a knife! I am so happy that eventually resurfaced such chief which doesn’t cause shame since now we already realise that many brands just play with lovely words "tactical" "combat" etc however actually don’t justify this in any respect but right here Benchmade stands completely behind their phrases And significant thanks to Shane Sibert i can call him a genius knife clothier on the grounds that he created this wonderwork.That is all, i hope it was exciting to you Thanks for looking at, see you, bye bye. I wish to add one importand and superb thing. All this work, all trying out was once handed without of the box bevel thickness of zero.5mm. Yes you heard right, it can be zero.5mm maybe 0.55mm right here 1mm on the tip, however on the cutting edge 0.5mm And need to add an extra thing, regrettably less first-rate In closed position, after trying out in the end loads blade began to hit the spacer one can find a marks on the within, right here and there within the place it hits. Spacer is comprised of G10 And when it folds, it hits with click In concept, AXIS pin must function as a blade-stop in closed function might be it can be deformed after I take this knive apart and restoration it, i will verify all this.Nevertheless a knife didn’t lost it’s working capability. It’s very predominant and it is undoubtedly a brand new vertex, new typical for all coming tough Use checks. That’s all, thanks for staring at, bye bye. Hi all! Restoring Benchmade Adamas after rough Use trying out I disassembled/assembled it countless times trying to eliminate the concern which motives blade hitting a spacer and vertical blade-play. It turned out to be a identical challenge. And finally with grief in half I found it. On the establishing let’s look at the AXIS pin in this spot you will discover this dent which was left by way of a blade in the course of lock checking out and batoning most of the time pin failed to bent and this makes me comfortable. The strikes were very strong right here And now… Knife is in disassembled state, there are handiest liners, spacer and lock-pin and not using a spring And if i’ll push the pin with my fingers to the end i’ll still have a vertical blade-play which you could hear it I wasn’t capable to fully grasp what’s the quandary to start with I notion that a lock has exhausted and going to the very end truly it’s going beautiful far however when you appear closely on the within you’ll see that there is nonetheless somewhat of house remains to be left i.E.Lock nonetheless didn’t reached it’s restrict but by some means when you push the blade, the AXIS pin is moves from it is place Now i will show you however that I located the rationale, the unhealthy is that it are not able to be fixed. And now watching here, at this spot. This dent. Right here. And from other aspect, the equal. Dent. I can be evidently seen now i.E. Here we have a channel wherein AXIS-pin moves And earlier than that, a channel was once the identical width, and pin wasn’t competent to maneuver from it is position And now we now have that a channel received little widening And blade can push the pin a bit of greater These zero.5mm play this role The equal applies in closed role In closed function, AXIS on this state and blade pushes the pin larger permitting a blade to head down I believe it needs to be clear This deformation on a liners, from powerful strikes, leaded to this here is a deformation on each side, can also be seen clearly consequently now this knife will at all times have some vertical blade-play and hit spacer that is all, subsequent i’m going to show you the knife after assembling and resharpening.Finally the knife is cleaned, reassembled, resharpened and we can summarize this hard Use testing. First we’ll speak about end result of these checks for a knife Coating has rubbed and scratched in some spots but it’s secure to say that it holded all tests worthily and stayed in it can be position by most section. Blade used to be resharpened. D2 steel showed itself first-class throughout sharpening on Apex part professional jogged my memory very a lot of Italian D2 steel on DPx HEST knife i.E. Sharpened with ease however felt that it’s very difficult steel and acquired sharpness excellent. Knife was resharpened through 27 degrees per aspect when this angle turned out to be smaller than the normal out of the field. As a result that you would be able to assume how coarsely it was sharpened but of course there are factors for that on the grounds that this knife is intended for an extraordinarily hard jobs and hence I failed to made right here a much smaller perspective since it doesn’t make sense on this knife.I would like to finish here, however sadly this knife received one beautiful severe harm in the course of the checks and now it’s similar to a soldier who came back from war with wound. This wound will leave a mark on his wellness for a entire life however nonetheless a fighter itself is entirely capable to battle extra and ready to go to combat each time. I’m speaking about liners deformation in a spot when they contact with AXIS-pin. And what is happening on the moment is if a knife is opened, push on a spine. Blade falls down slightly. You’ll find that pin is strikes from it can be place. That is beautiful titanic vertical play. You could look from this angle the way it moves… And that’s all because of these small dents right here.It additionally impact on that in closed role, blade touches the spacer. It can be now not important right here but it is not exceptional whilst you realize it. The spacer itself is constituted of G10 and as i realized it would not dulling the blade. However the clicking sound is reward. Again seeing that of AXIS-pin falls extra than it will have to. I had a thoughts about selling this knife in the end the exams however then I idea how a lot am i able to ask for it with such blade-play… And all in all this can be a folding knife which is probably the most robust and high-quality knife that I ever tested in these hardest exams. And it is value is it’s history. It can be so much excellent for me to put it on stand in show and just seem at it.When you consider that the knife is definitely competent to work, lock holds lifeless. Even in this state, after I assembled the knife I backbone-whacked it a few times above all to check if it holds. Holds dead, regardless of of this little relocating. However it is impossible to show to anyone and for me it has absolutelly different value. And it is a leader who set new stardarts, confirmed what should be really equipped to do folding knife. Robust, good knife, which is known as "tactical", "combat", and so forth… And Adamas accumulates the entire exceptional homes of the knife of this type. Only a fine knife, i do not even discover a phrases to explain this. We are going to search further, however what was once proven with the aid of this knife… It simply made a historical past and opened our eyes.That’s all, i’m hoping it was once exciting for you Thanks for looking at, bye bye. I forgot to say that from this moment, in description of all difficult Use testing movies and in my channel’s description i will add a hyperlink to a document with my grades and score of all knives that were on a tough Use exams. Hence, with making a brand new checks, this document shall be updated and i hope that someday it should turn out to be a source that you could depend on when making your conclusions , or making your alternative of difficult and dependable tactical knife. That is all, bye bye.
