Just ordered a just released Spyderco Nightstick.



Haven't received it yet and have no idea what it looks/feels like in person. Didn't really need it w/3 Gerber Mark I's and several other fixed blade daggers (most 2 edged, not just 1) in the safe and the overflow storage area.

Just bought it because I hadn't bought a knife for awhile and was having "withdrawal" symptoms.

LOL!

Just got an Ontario OKC-3S for my m4 clone. I definitely prefer it over the M9 bayonet in both form and function.

Nice one. Even Spyderco makes nicer Fixed blades than Gerber.

Just bought a "LEATHERMAN - Skeletool RX Multitool with Serrated Knife and Glass Breaker without Sheath". $79.95 on amazon.

But I mainly bought it for the pliers and glass breaker.

I haven't bought a really good knife in a few years. In the attachment, can you pick out the real one from the fake one?

I don't know about that I really like my Gerber MkI's (I've got 3 of them) and I don't think the Nightstick is "better" than any of them.

What steels are they made of? "Stainless" ? I guess it doesn't matter if you don't cut anything with them. Looks like a stabby boot knife.

The Gerber Mark I and II were made w/440C stainless steel. I've also got a Command II that's made w/the same steel. These knives are extremely sharp and will definitely cut anything that you want to cut w/them.

The Mark I's are so pointy sharp that you could easily eviserate someone with it w/a penetration entry stab and a lateral cut upon exit.

The Nightstick wouldn't be as effective, unless and until the dull edge of the blade is sharped to be dual edged like the Gerber Mark I but, obvioulsy, if I were to carry one, it would be the Nightstick which is not a "collector's item and (at least currently) can be easily replaced.

The Nightstick wouldn't be as effective because it is a 4" blade. The MKI's 5" blade isn't as effective as a MKII 6.5" blade. 5" blades are pretty inadequate. The MKII's are not as effective as a 8" blade. 440C is ok for stainless. Definitely not a super steel, but it doesn't suck as much as most people think it sucks. Everyone has an opinion

I don't think length is an issue.

The 4-5" Gerbers or Nightstick will penetrate at least 2/3rd the way into most people's abdominal cavity and just a twist and slash (assuing use turn the blade the proper way w/the Nightstick) will ruin anyone's life after that.

I like the regular XM width for it's robustness.

If I need a skinny I use the Paramilitary 2.

OKC bayo... pretty sweet blade. Reminds me of a SYKCO parkerized Regulator... this is a beast compared to the KABAR "Big Brother" I got a while ago and sent back because it SUCKED. OKC is legit.






Doesn't fit a pencil barrel on a AR22 but it locks in... didn't feel like digging through uppers to find a HBAR with a lug and wouldn't fit any AR-10's...

The $2 Natrix




via EBAY $25 code

Decent fit and finish... some blade play to be expected but not as crappy as a Thermite or other Wuhan fodder. I'll gift it to someone whining that they don't have a knife.

Like NINJAS do in movies? Ahhhahahah. Yeah we used to practice that... in the 6th grade bro. We used SWORDS. Nah you need 7" to reach vitals... I mean yeah on the internet that Gerber is fine. Make sure to use it on naked skinnies. Hahahahahah.
