Benchmade Allen Elishewitz 140 - Nimravus

Well, if Nimravus is a cat, then this one must be a kitten. Although in general I don't like small blades this one & Busse Meant Street are just great knives IMHO. When you need something small, for example not to make nervous sensitive public with 5"-7" or 9 inch blade, this one will work just great ;) Even though, the handle is smaller than on Nimravus #140, still it fits my hand nicely. Like I mentioned above I've reprofiled the edge, so now it has double bevel, 17 & 21 degree angles primary & secondary bevels accordingly. M2 Tool Steel is strong enough to perform well even at lower angles BTW, besides less likely I'll need to chop bones or bushes with 3.65 inch long blade ;) Battle Mistress, Project II, Falkniven A1 are very well suited for that sort of tasks.
