    So yesterday I was going through a couple B.O.B.s I have in my house - I knew I remembered putting a small fixed blade in each of them. I was wondering where those blasted knives went!

    I guess I have CRS... anyway I do believe these are both Benchmade Nimravus Cubs, of slightly different variations. I remember when this knife first came out - Benchmade asked its forum members to come up with the name of it as a contest. Whoever's name was chosen, received one of these knives as a prize. It was none other than James Mattis (RIP buddy), who named it the "Nimravus" which is a small extinct "saber tooth" cat https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Nimravus (the smaller version of this knife of course was the Nimravus Cub).

    There, a Benchmade history lesson as well. ;)

    I don't suppose you still have these?

    Guess I also ought to ask if they were being offered up for sale?

    Sorry, they aren't for sale. I've turned them into my glove box knives to keep in the cars.

    Never hurts to ask. Good on you for having a place for them to be of use.
