Cooperation between two knives manufacturers, Buck Knives and TOPS Knives Tactical Operational Products, created a heavy duty, rugged, made in the U.S.A, fixed blade knife called the Nighthawk. There are 2 blade lengths for this knife a 5 inch and a 6.5 inch. It is made from 420 High Carbon steel made by Latrobe Specialty Metals from Latrobe, Pennsylvania, which is considered as providing fairly good performance at a cheap price, assuming it went through proper heat treatment and the alloy was pure. 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. Its finger guard is relatively small but it exists and should be sufficient. The blade is very thick and can be used for batoning and as a small craw bar as well.

Blade Length: 5 inch
Blade Length: 6.5 inch
Blade Material: 420 High Carbon Steel
