If you like knives you almost inevitably know what someone is talking about if they told you they were given a knife with a butterfly on it. Benchmade has been a notoriously well made tool for decades know and I expect will continue to be so for some time.
In the world of knives one of the main features is if it is a fixed blade or if it locks. Fixed blades have some obvious advantages in terms of strength and continuity, while lock blades have great portable functionality. The Benchmade Nimravus is a very good fixed blade knife and is something that you can expect to have for years to come.
For me, the advantage of a fixed blade, particularly one as well made as the Benchmade Nimravus line, is that you can do just about anything to it and not worry about it holding up. That is the great thing about fixed blades, there is nothing to go wrong. Assuming the metal is well made everything else is kind of a non-worry.
So if you are looking for a knife to go the distance, and one that you can trust, a Benchmade fixed blade may be just what you’re looking for.
My favorite part of the movie Secondhand Lions is the part where the main character, Walter, goes to a restaurant with his uncles, Hub and Garth. Some young, punk teenagers come into the restaurant thinking that they can do whatever they want and start messing with the old men. What they don’t know is that Hub was trained in the French foreign legions and can kick there butts with his eyes closed.
The punk kids pull a benchmade griptilian knife on Hub, thinking that they are going to hurt the old man. He turns the benchmade griptilian knife back on them in two seconds, pulling it away from them. He’s confident in his abilities, so he throws the knife back at them, and tells them to try again. The punk kid does, but still gets taken down by just Uncle Hub. In fact, all four or five of the teenagers get taken down by just Uncle Hub. It’s a terrific scene.
The point of all this is that it doesn’t matter what weapons you have if you don’t know how to use them. Only the combination of knowledge plus weapons will save you. But please, use your benchmade griptilian knives for good.
