I carried thenimravus on my fire initial attack gear for a year and loved this knife. I unfortunitaly i lost this knife inyosemite and i want another. Being on a fire crew you might not think of it as a need for such a big knife but when you wake up to a 600 lbs., black bear nothing other than a gun and this knife will make you feel better and safer. many a snake has been sliced for food with this knife, very comfortable and typical benchmade stayed sharp all year long even with the harshest of use. i love this knife.
Slim, Lightweight & Plenty Tough
I wear this knife on my entry vest because I like its streamlined, modern design. Not too big or bulky. No silly ninja features. Everything about this knife is understated and all-business. It fits good in my hands, even with gloves and when it's wet. The index finger indent and thumb grip notch make for a really secure grip. The blade seems to be plenty strong. The new molle-compatible sheath is much more adaptable than the previous sheath offered with this knife.
Nice Short Knife
Nice knife, handle fits nicely in the hand. Only reason not for a 5, is the blade length could be a little longer
