Why We Like It
Nice hard shell sheath that maintains positive control of the knife until you are ready to draw it.
The Nimravus 140 features a drop-point blade while the Nimravus 141 features a modified tanto blade. For both Nimravus models a modern tip design towers like an obelisk in an endless spew of would-be challengers. Use of full-tang, premium grade steel blade consciously dissuades any fear of tool failure. Blade shape offers great utility. Uncompromising grip is achieved with sculpted G10 scales and an exposed tang enables blind indexing of the cutting edge. Sheath design is integral to a fixed blade knife and this one is no exception. A unique 3-point secure system holds the knife in its place. Two model sizes cover all application options.

154CM - An American made premium grade stainless steel originally developed for tough industrial applications. Known for its best all-around qualities, it offers great corrosion resistance with good toughness and edge quality.
Tanto - Most tantos seen on the American cutlery market are Americanized formats. Like the Japanese tanto, the Americanized tanto has a high point in-line with the pivot. A flat grind is applied to the point, leaving it very thick and extraordinarily strong. This thick area helps absorb the impact from piercing, as the tanto was originally designed for armor piercing. The front edge meets the bottom edge at an obtuse angle rather than curving to meet it as seen in the Japanese tanto. The only negative aspect of the tanto blade shape is the cutting surface area is sacrificed to gain tip strength.
Black Class products are designed, developed and tested for extreme duty. They are the preferred cutting tools for Law Enforcement, Public Safety and Elite Military Troops around the globe.
