FB47 Nightstick

Designed by renowned custom knifemaker Gayle Bradley, the Nightstick is a uniquely modern take on the classic boot knife. Its flat-ground CPM S30V stainless steel blade is single edged to make it more legally friendly, but retains the traditional symmetrical bevels of this no-nonsense breed.

Smooth G-10 scales flank the handle’s full tang and integral double guard and are secured by stout tubular rivets. To support a wide range of carry positions and keep the knife poised for quick access, the Nightstick comes complete with a custom-molded Boltaron® sheath with a versatile G-Clip™ mount.[1]
