M2 Nimravus?

Apr 30, 1999
Are they going to come out with a M2 steeled Nimravus ? If so how much would that cost , where could I get 1 , and when is coming out ?
Hee hee! I just managed to get an answer out of Benchmade on a similar question...an M2 Axis. Answer: they have no plans at present to make such an item.

You might want to surf over to the Benchmade forum and make a little (well, a lot) of noise there asking your question, and after a few pokes and prods they will respond.

Remember, it takes a lot of resources to put a knife in production, so they can't make a M2 variant of everything the same way they can churn out knives with plain, serrated and combo options.

But, pester them...if there appears to be a market for a M2 Nimravus, I'll bet they'll make one. I just hope it's AFTER my M2 Axis.


Hey! Uncle Sam!

(_!_) Nyah nyah nyah!

Refund! You lose! :)

I asked Leslie at NWC about an M2 Axis myself and was told that this was not in the plans at the moment over at BM. She did, I think, indicate that an M@ Nimravus was planned by Benchmade for later in the year...

Hope I remembered this right...

The new Benchmade catalog lists the Nimravus in M2, for I-forget-how-much more money. The difference is somewhere in the range of dinner for two at a respectable working-class restaurant. Availability "later."

In the BM catalog...Nimravus and Nimravus Cub in M2, BT2 coating. Nimravus MSRP $175, Cub MSRP $160. It will be later in the year, obviously, as BM production goes. Maybe early next year? Anyway, based on the current MSRP for Axis and what I got mine for, should be able to get a Nimravus and Cub for about $115 and $100, respectively, if you look around.

Outlaw Dogboy,

Did it say in the catalog what kind of sheath would accompany the Nimravus Cub? I read on the BM forum that the initial sheath was a cordura cloth type one, but the support team said they may change it to kydex, but that they hadn't decided at the time.
The catalog lists it with a kydex sheath, steel clip, just like the full size.


Live fast, die young, and leave a good looking corpse, it's the only way to win.

Mr. Blonde, still looking for that unltimate small fixed blade, eh? Look at my post regarding Livesay UJI. Did you get Kydex for CS Mini Tanto yet?
