Benchmade Nimravus Fixed Blade Knife Review

Benchmade Nimravus 4.5" 154CM Steel Combo Blade, Black Aluminum Handles

The Nimravus is another lightweight tanto-style knife manufactured by Benchmade. It's very popular and is also more expensive than some of their other knives. Let's take a look at why and whether it's worth it.

There are many variations on the Nimravus features. I will link to a set of Nimravus knives below, so you can pick and choose your options.

The one pictured above features a modified tanto blade with a serrated top edge near the bolster. Nimravus blades are made from 154CM steel and coated with Benchmade's Kote-1 treatment solution. This is very corrosion-resistant. And you've probably guessed by just looking at it, but yes, it is full-tang fixed blade.

The handle is available in Black or Sand. It's made from lightweight aluminum, but isn't as paper-thin as some other knives floating around out there. It puts the Nimravus' weight at 6.2 oz., however, so it should feel pretty light for a full-sized fixed blade knife.


The handle also features some light scaling. This is meant to help with the grip, lest the slick aluminum get the best of you when you need a steady hand.

The only other downside I can foresee is the thumb grip and forefinger groove. But that's only if you don't prefer to have those on your blades. Other than that, the Nimravus looks to be a fine piece of equipment, and should treat you well.
