Description
BM140SBK: 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.

Cons: Sheath/Scabbard, None
Favorite Knife
I was given this knife by my dad and got it while he was overseas. When sharpened right this knife is one of the best blades around (for around this price (my dad got the one he gave me for $85 thought)) The hilt and blade are balanced well enough that if I had to I could throw it (would hate to thought) The knife is surprisingly light. The blade is of good steel, the hilt is a perfect grip for me (14y girl) And I would recommend this blade for anyone who knows how to handle a blade. Only Con I have is that the sheath mine has isn't the best material. But even still it does it's job.
