BM140BK: Nimravus


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.

Best knife I own.
I EDC this knife on my get home bag daily. It's lightweight and super sharp . As with all Benchmade products they are some of the highest quality. Knife center did a price match for me and won my loyalty. A great company to deal with.

Good purchase
I really like the light weight and size. Just about big enough for most jobs and is flat enough and light enough you don't notice it much when its on your belt. I did read that the sheath could be used IWB but I don't see it as a very practical option with this sheath. There are a ton better options for a IWB carry, other than that this is a great knife. I'm very happy with this purchase.

Top notch tactical knife
I have quite a few tactical knives from several other companies. Finally got around to purchasing a Nimravus. While it isn't the largest tactical blade around it is FAST - this is certainly the fastest tactical knife I own. 154CM steel is good and heat treatment is excellent. The handle scales are surprisingly good for being made of metal... The jimping on the thum ramp is a bit too aggressive though.
