Buck Nighthawk, Black Oxide, Nylon Sheath
Cooperation between two knife manufacturers, Buck Knives and TOPS Knives Tactical Operational Products, have created a heavy duty, rugged, made in the U.S.A, fixed blade knife called the Nighthawk. The blade is 5 inches long, and is made from 420 High Carbon steel made by Latrobe Specialty Metals from Latrobe, Pennsylvania. That means that it is a very strong blade yet you can sharpen it fairly quickly, from a survivalist point of view a higher quality, more expensive knife, would take hours to sharpen in the field and the Buck 650 will take minutes. The blade is very thick and can be used for batoning and as a small craw bar as well. Priced to move, cheaper than Amazon!!!
