I just received my primordial today and have to say this is an excellent design across the board.....I love the ergonomics of it. The detent is perfect with a smooth action and perfect centering of the blade. there is absolutely no blade play and extremely sharp right out of the box. Although this knife is small it has a solid feel to it while in your hands. I wouldn't hesitate to purchase another one of Adams pieces. I'm very impressed with it!

top notch build quality!

Excellent little knife. It is extremely light weight but still seems to feel very solid in the hand. Butter smooth action and I like how it's not a flipper. I own SEVERAL flippers and it seems you can rarely find a non-flipper folding knife any more. Anyways, I find the build quality in this knife to be astounding. Super smooth all over, no sharp edges to be found anywhere. The blade stops are done uniquely. As opposed to using barrel stops, there are nubs on the blade that ride in a channel milled into the bolster, completely hidden from view. Knife seems smaller than the numbers indicate but that is probably due to it's extremely light weight. Was nervous pulling the trigger on this one due to it's price, but I am not disappointed in the slightest. Nice work APurvis!

PERFECT detent and smooth action. Light in hand with no hot spots, the Primordial is a winner.

Nice EDC knife

It's a fun knife to fidget with. It's smaller than you might think but the ergonomics are great for my small to medium-sized hands. The pocket clip has been placed at the very butt of the knife to carry as deep in the pocket as possible. The action is better than I thought. It dropped shut straight out of the box. It's a great knife for everyday carry in my opinion.
