So it goes without saying I am a massive benchmade fan, I was using my Nimravus today and the blade snapped. Tottaly gutted as I have used this knife for years and ita always been a good tool, it kept it's edge beautifully.

An all around awesome knife I absolutely love it. It’s nice and light not as heavy as most fixed blades I got mine in the tanto and I love it. It’s razor sharp and works great. I just wish it had G10 scales

This is my second knife from Benchmade, and I wasn't disappointed! This company is fast becoming one of my all time favorite knife manufacturers, and the Nimravus only solidifies my opinion.

I wanted a knife for hiking that could replace my heavier Kabar, and the Nimravus is absolutely perfect. It weighs less, is a bit shorter (a little more than an inch in the blade), and fits my hand much better. I purchased the drop point straight blade, and I like that it looks a bit more like a spear point than a drop point. The blade flows perfectly and is almost perfectly balanced, and the handle provides a good grip. It is razor sharp, which is of course what we have come to expect from Benchmade.

If I had any criticisms they would be minor, I wish they would offer G10 scales and an S30V blade, but that's about it. The Sheath buckle is so stiff you almost can't get it undone (nylon sheath), I had to file the snap and now it's flawless. Obviously price is always an issue, but you do get what you pay for, and at this price point I'm very happy. I'll pay extra to support American companies, and they deliver quality!

I have many different tactical knives from several different companies. Somehow I just never got around to purchasing a Nimravus until now. While it may not be the largest tactical knife around - it is FAST! This is by far the fastest tactical knife I own. The 154 steel is very good - Benchmade heat treatment is perfect - and 154 is certainly at the higher end of other steel types out there used in a tactical knife. I would love to see this in an S30V version...

Nearly the perfect knife. It just doesn't come with the perfect thumb toggle sheath included like it use to. It's now extra. They are the best sheath ever made. It also would be a far better knife if it came with those cool looking non-smooth G 10 handles like some of the discontinued bone collector shorter cub styles had on them.Would have bought a cub but they're handle was to short. A lot of people that collect these would buy such a product.

Have four of these. They will still have a razor sharp edge when your other name brands wont. Cutting the same materials. Have owned them all and have done real world test. The only flaw in it is it doesn't come with the thumb toggle sheath and you have to pay extra for it. Furthermore a handle made of G 10 material with the a non smooth texture would make it even better.

I am a knife maker and a knife collector. I'm also a Marine and a military contractor. I have carried a Nimravus for years, in some bad places. I trust my life with this blade. Enough said.

I received this knife as a gift nearly five years ago. I have used it on almost a daily basis for work. It was the first in a very long line of Benchmade knives I have owned. The knife holds its edge extremely well and comes razor sharp out of the box. There was an unfortunate incident where the knife fell into a lake and remained there for nearly a month before the water receded. After retrieving the knife, I noticed that there was next no to rust or tarnish on the blade. Due to this, I can not imagine purchasing anything other than Benchmade in the future. I have already set my sights on my next foldable, and I hope to order very soon.
