Blackhawk Nightedge Knife
Designed by renowned custom knifemaker Allen Elishewitz, the Nightedge is a full-sized fixed-blade knife inspired by the popular MOD Nightwing. Its serrated back edge optimizes the knife's utility and combat potential by providing a secondary edge suitable for heavy cutting, back cuts, and draw cuts. This unique grind also produces a reinforced point for extreme tip strength and penetration.
To make this dramatic design more affordable to field soldiers on a budget, the Nightedge is ground from tough 1085C high-carbon tool steel and coated with a non-reflective, corrosion-resistant black epoxy coating. Each Nightedge comes equipped with a plastic-lined ballistic nylon sheath.
Blade length: 5.900" Overall length: 10.900" Made of 1085-C high-carbon tool steel Black epoxy coating finish Partially serrated Thermoplastic rubber handle with textured panels Plastic-lined foliage green ballistic nylon sheath

Dull, Dull, Dull

I may have made a huge mistake by buying this very same knife from DVOR; a place that has great prices, terrible customer service and quite possibly sells rejects or mistakes for less money. Or maybe Blackhawk sells junk like their nylon sheaths; at least I got the new plastic sheath that holds the knife firmly in any position. So I like the plastic sheath but the knife is seriously so dull it won't cut paper and I would sharpen it but I am not good at sharpening serrated edges and this knife has a lot of those. The whole knife is dull like it skipped the sharpening stage completely, got greased and sent out.
One more thing; I have a small but very strong hand and this knifes handle is too small and one finger too short. It's got a beefy strong tip but if I ever needed to stab something I think I would lose a finger or two (if it was sharp). Maybe you're meant to wear gloves to use it properly?? I'm still waiting for Blackhawks knife department to call me back with options; so far no return calls. It may be a second but in my business we don't sell seconds to anyone, they go to the trash. The nylon sheath isn't the only thing wrong with this knife. Is Blackhawk really as good as everyone brags about?
If looks could kill...

Being a former US Marine Infantryman, I have come to understand the importance of a knife. A knife, as innocuous as it may sound, is more than just a piece of metal with a sharp edge. A knife, when properly utilized, can be better than any multi-tool out there. For many years BLACKHAWK! has been the gold standard for 'after market' military gear. One would be hard pressed to go to any military unit and not find BLACKHAWK! equipment being used. That was the same for myself and my fellow Marines. Their products are durable and practical, which brings me to the knife in question...This blade is obscenely mean looking and rightly so! It's edge is razor sharp (literally) and the back end serrated edge is great for cutting through paracord without fraying the edges. The handle is ergonomically made and grips especially well when wearing gloves. Its weight is perfectly balanced making it feel natural in my hands. On the end of the handle there is a hole perfectly fitted to string cord through to secure it better, because the one drawback is the sheath. The sheath is crap. It does not hold the blade in place, which needless to say, is a MAJOR hinderance. I had to loop paracord across the hilt essentially thickening up the handle so it would stick into the sheath. The sheath has a button fastener that is supposed to hold the blade in place, yet does not put enough tension on the blade to do that simple task, hence the need to thicken it up with paracord. Regardless of how it is mounted on your person or on your gear, that is a must unless you want to go searching around for your blade every time you go from place to place. All in all, this knife is ridiculously cool and although I have the utmost respect for my trusty Ka-Bar, this guy is simply bad-ass. One thing I do get in criticism, especially from Ka-Bar loyalists is the fact that it cannot be used as a bayonet. That said, I have never seen anyone use a bayonet (In the 4 years I was active duty) except to look cool in pictures. Another drawback is the price, but like most things BLACKHAWK! there really is no way of getting around that aspect. The adage of 'you get what you pay for' does ring true. Hopefully, they can fix the sheath, because that is the one thing not allowing this knife to be perfect.
