Description
BM140SBKADC: Nimravus Partially Serrrated with ACU Camo Sheath
Benchmade Knife Company
 
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, Weight, Overall Quality, None
Cons: Blade Sharpness, Sheath/Scabbard, Finish
Good Knife
Very high quality knife. Would have preferred if it came with the kydex sheath instead of molle, though. Decent edge, but not as sharp as it could be. Very solid and well made. Excellent balance, finish and materials.

ehh
bought this knife for my husband because i wanted him to have the best. this seemed like a really great knife but the first time he took it on a trip (he's in the military) the snap on the sheath came unhooked and he lost this knife. we are both extremely bummed and out $200. also, the finish on the blade became scratched the first time he used it.
