I also love playing with the Adamas. I opted for the benchmade turret so as not to hurt myself. I love it because it sits just under the crazy threshold!

Personally, I like the Frenzy more lol…. I tend to always buy American and or, Japanese. However I do EDC a large Luzon, my only Chineseium piece in my collection.

The Adamas was the first "expensive" knife I bought. The thing is definitely a freaking tank. But if I had a time machine I would probably tell my past self not to spend $200 on g10 and D2.

Cold steel might do the best "folder to chop down a tree" but benchmade do it SO well, and their versions are usually prettier and a bit "nicer". Thanks for the video mate, I'm trying to avoid buying one now!
