I imagine that knife would make an excellent survival knife. For general purposes and possibly knife fighting, I have been curiously eying the BLACKHAWK Nightwing, but I can't seem to find any reviews or comparisons on it. Would anyone like to help?
ED - Brenton, I've never used the Nightwing, but I'll throw my two pfenning out. Looking at the video in the link you provided, and looking at the construction of the blade (3V steel, multiple cutting surfaces, the option of one or two serrated edges) seem to make it a superior fighting knife. However, in my 18+ years of military service, I've never, ever gotten into a knife fight but I have done a lot of hacking, chopping, cutting, probing, prying, and bashing, so when I look for a knife, utility and durability are at the top of my list. I'm not a professional knife fighter and I never will be, so all those features the Nightwing offers for such professionals would be wasted on me (not to mention I would be truly terrified to have a serrated double edged utility knife) and while the construction of the Nightwing (with the 3V steel) makes the blade thin, quick, and light, I would think those impediments in the utility realm.
For me, if I had to choose, just looking at construction, features, and price, I'd take the Bark River Bravo-1 over the Nightwing.
