Two Blades to Compliment Your Pistols

When it comes to 1911 pistols, revolvers, and shotguns, Nighthawk Custom stands out with its high-quality offerings. Living up to the motto “One gun, one gunsmith,” the company takes attention to detail to the next level. Now, Nighthawk Custom teams with renowned bladesmith Steve Woods for two new knives—the Night Fighter and Night Hunter.

Nighthawk Custom Night Fighter and Night Hunter Knives

Favored by several three-letter agencies and gracing the covers of numerous magazines, Steve Woods has created world-class knives for over 22 years. Like Nighthawk Custom, Woods pays meticulous attention to detail and only utilizes premium materials. For this reason, he was the perfect choice to create the knives that exemplify Nighthawk’s dedication to producing top-tier tools.

Featuring full tang construction, each knife utilizes CPM 154 stainless steel, with a Rockwell hardness of 58-59. The high-end steel is known for its balance between wear resistance, corrosion resistance, and toughness. Additionally, the glass bead blasted finish helps add another layer of protection while providing a sleek aesthetic.

The interface for each knife is provided by the textured G-10 handle scales with an embedded Nighthawk Custom medallion. Utilizing a layering technique (tan/black for the Fighter and black/black for the Hunter) gives the scales a 3D appearance. The scales on both knives are removable via stainless Torx #20 screws for cleaning or other utility uses.

The Night Fighter features a 6-inch drop-point blade with a layered fuller running most of its length. Measuring an overall length of 11 inches, the Fighter offers an ample finger choil with a guard and thumb ramp. Additionally, the exposed butt includes three holes for attaching a lanyard for extra retention.

The shorter of the two, the Night Hunter measures an overall length of 9 inches for manageable handling. Featuring a 4-inch blade, the Hunter utilizes a clip-point blade, making it ideal for skinning applications. Like the Fighter, the Hunter also includes an ample finger choil and an exposed butt with three lanyard holes.
