Description
BM140BK: Nimravus
Benchmade

The sleek, the Benchmade Nimravus signifies Benchmade's first fixed blade offering in several years. The Nimravus was styled by designer Allen Elishewitz to appeal to Benchmade customers who wanted a lot of the same features, materials and styling traditionally found with Benchmade folders except in a fixed blade format. As you can see it has a very good utility blade shape, and will perform equally well in a diverse selection of uses. Although not a geometric Tanto shape, this modern tip design is among the strongest configurations available today.

The 4.5" full-tang blade is ground from 154CM stainless steel and features a false edge that lightens the blade without sacrificing tip strength. The Blades are BK1 coated - Benchmade's proprietary blade coating offering excellent corrosion resistance, which exceeds the ASTM-117 specification for saltwater corrosion resistance. BK1 is a poly-ceramic coating (a blend of polymers and ceramic). It's thinner than the previous blade coating BT2, has equal to or better corrosion resistance (exceeding the ASTM salt spray standard) and unlike BT2 has much better wear resistance due to the ceramic. Additionally they have integrated a series of positive indexing notches in the spine for sure-grip blade control.

One of the most important features of any fixed blade should be the sheath, and this one is no exception. The sheath may also be carried inside, or outside, the waistband. The versatility of the knife and its sheath design allows for carry and use in nearly any application that warrants a tough, mid-sized fixed blade.

Pros: Materials, Handle Material, Blade Material, Finish, Weight, Overall Quality, Blade Sharpness
Cons: Sheath/Scabbard, None
I have this knife on my hiking pack hanging upside down it the optional kydex sheath. (Which I highly recommend) . I love the feel of the knife, perfect balance, awesome weight, extremely grippy handle and super sharp out of the box. The jimping for the thumb is amazing, not sharp, and not too dull. The 154cm is great, liking it better then I thought I would. Would like to see a gold class nimravus from benchmade.

Great Knife
This is a great knife. I've had this it for over 5 years now, its taken everything I can throw at it. From bush craft and skinning small game to everyday carry, it has been exactly what I've needed. The size, weight, and handel make it extremely easy to maneuver, and conferrable to use.

Pros: Blade Material, Blade Sharpness, Handle Material, Weight, Overall Quality, None
Cons: Sheath/Scabbard
Great. But I have it attached to my blackhawk tactical vest hanging upside down. When I remove the knife, due to the snap around the handle, it cuts into that material.
