Narberth produced an excellent all-round team display to win a high-scoring thriller in Gwent.
The Otters led 23-20 at the interval and battled through with a potent mixture of sharp skills and dogged determination.
James Russell opened their account with a penalty and he also added the extra points to a try by No 8 Wayne Williams.
He also converted other tries from winger Will Lewis and centre Steve Martin before another Russell penalty rounded off their scoring.
Blackwood responded with a first-minute try from centre Gareth Price and as the lead changed hands several times there were other tries by Sean Emery and second row Marc Williams, alongside a conversion and penalty from Josh Steer.
The Gwent side also scored two more tries from centre David James in the second half, one converted by Steer.
But the Otters responded with more tries of their own by hooker Dan Smith and Russell, the second converted by replacement No 10 Rhys Roberts.
They then held on for an excellent away win and were good value for their bonus point as well.
Narberth: Johnny Morgan, Will Lewis, Steve Martin (capt), Richard Davies, James Russell, Stuart Morris, Adrian Killa, Sean Lloyd, Dan Smith, Steffan Jones, Alex Jenkins, Giles Vaughan, Laurence Reynolds, Wayne Lewis, Gareth Bateman.
Replacements: Tom Slater, Chris James, Rhys Roberts, Nick Jones, Steffan Phillips.
