ABOUT THE NIMBUS OPERATIVO: The NIMBUS OPERATIVO is a combat knife celebrating a hand-to-hand battle in WWII. Extrema Ratio developed the NIMBUS to commemorate the battle of Case Grizzano between the Italian paratroopers of Nembo and the German 1st Division Fallschimjager. This costly skirmish was hard won by the Nembo after a long battle. The Extrema Ratio NIMBUS is designed to be a strong knife as well as a streamlined knife.

BLADE: Beautifully shaped blade. Spear point with full tang and no serrations. Carefully designed to streamline it without decreasing its strength. Each side has a fuller that extends almost the full length of the blade. The NIMBUS has a black finish that is very durable and protective. Non-reflective.

HANDLE: The NIMBUS' handle is also streamlined and designed to give you a positive grip no matter how you hold your NIMBUS. There is a substantial oval guard to protect your hand. Each side of the guard has a lanyard hole. The rounded butt end of the tang extends slightly beyond the handle end.

SHEATH: A combination sheath consisting of Kydex and Cordura. Plus a clip system for attaching the sheath. Can be carried on a belt. Designed to be minimal and light weight. Rides close to your body. MOLLE compatible.
