TOPS/Buck Nighthawk Fixed Blade 0650BKSTP
The TOPS/Buck Nighthawk is a heavy duty fixed survival knife. The razor sharp full tang blade is crafted from Buck's premium 420HC stainless steel with black oxide finish that's not only tough, but non-reflective. The handle has a thermoplastic core secured to the tang of the knife with a rubberized Dynaflex, textured layer molded over the core. Included on the top of the handle is a thumb pad that really helps improve control of the knife. Not only is the handle comfortable, but the textured grip prevents slipping even in wet conditions.
Brand new, direct from Buck Knives.
Blade: The nearly 1⁄4" thick, Paul Bos heat treated 420HC blade is black oxide finished for a subdued look. The high hollow grind slices with ease and power while the long clip point profile is equipped with a generous top swedge enhancing the piercing performance for both utility and defensive use. An oval hole in the blade doubles as an oxygen wrench in emergency situations.
Handle: The dual polymer handle is comfortable, ergonomic and tough as nails. The core of the handle is thermoplastic for durability while the forward grip and thumb ramp are equipped with Dynaflex rubber for comfort and traction under the most adverse conditions.
Carries via the included heavy-duty MOLLE compatible nylon sheath with a front accessory pouch.
Bos 420HC: Buck's standard blade material approaches the wear resistance of high carbon alloys while delivering the corrosion resistance of a stainless steel. The exclusive Bos heat-treat process delivers a very user-friendly combination of superior corrosion resistance with excellent strength for wear resistance and durability and ease of sharpening. For best performance blades are hardened to a Rockwell hardness of Rc 58.
