I have owned and used several knives from Ray Laconico over the years. Ray has recently begun to collaborate with talented ABS Master Smith Mike Vagnino. One of the first fruits of this collaboration is the mid-tech Nightwatch 5.0.
The Nightwatch 5.0 features a 5″ blade ground from 3/16″ thick D2 steel. It has a symmetrical full tang handle with a full integral guard. The clip point blade features a 3/4 length false edge. Other features like hollow tubing handle rivets, micarta handle slabs, and generous lanyard hole round out this versatile design.
