POTD: Twin Benchmade Nimravus in OD Green

    Today’s Photo is the Benchmade Nimravus in OD Green and with a fixed Tanto style blade. Not one, but twins.

    It’s always hard to judge the size of a knife on a picture, without a good reference.

    I would say that the Nimravus is a little smaller than I expected from seeing it on pictures, but fits my hand very well and it has a nice balance.

    The overall length is 9.45″ (24 cm). This is the serrated blade.

    The knives were bought and supplied by Equipt. Made in the USA.

    It’s a well balanced knife and it’s difficult to criticize the design. One criticism is the color. I have a Surefire flashlight and some other gear in Foilage Green, and this Benchmade is closer to Foilage than OD Green. I would have preferred a greener green.

    I guess I would go for the tan if I bought the Nimravus again, and maybe I’ll collect another. The tan will go perfectly with a black blade. (No, I don’t really have a need for the knife to blend in in any special kind of environment.)

    The blade steel is 154CM (58-61 HRC) with a blade length of 4.50″ (11.4 cm)

    You can attach this knife to your belt or to your Molle in a variety of ways. It sells at Benchmade for about 190 USD.

    Why buy twins? Well if you want the same configuration on your back packs, the solution is to get two of everything.
