  • Knife: Another fine handmade collaborative knife by James Beauchamp and Jay Fisher! This is a very strong and durable tactical grade knife. The blade has a very strong aggressive point. The blade is low care, highly corrosion resistant 440C high chromium martensitic tool steel. The blade has a half-length top swage to reduce point resistance while still maintaining superior spine strength. The blade has a fully tapered tang. Notice that the bolsters bed with a pair of pinned and dovetailed canvas micarta phenolic handle scales. This very tough, hard, and durable material is industrially manufactured for high compression resistance, toughness, and chemical resistance. The bolsters are tough 304 high chromium, high nickel austenitic stainless steel for the greatest longevity and zero care. 304 is the same steel used in 18-8 stainless steel bolts, nuts, and industrial fasteners.
  • Sheath: The sheath for this knife is one of James Beauchamp and Jay Fisher's positively locking military tactical combat models, made of double thickness kydex, 5052H32 corrosion resistant high strength aluminum, 304, 302, and 316 stainless steel locking mechanism and components, bound with nickel plated steel Chicago screws and 18-8 stainless machine screws. The belt loops are reversible for a variety of wear positions.
  • Another fine custom built knife for a great client!

Thanks, S.W.!

Hi Jay,
The knife arrived today and I am immensely pleased with results. The photos really don't do it justice. The finish is exactly what I was looking for and the balance is great. The sheath locking device works brilliantly; all in all a great piece of work.
I am already looking forward to the next knife, which will be a little more adventurous in terms of style and finish.
Outstanding Work
Kind Regards,


...I am impressed with the tight fit of the bolster to the tang, looks like it’s been properly surface ground on all of the mating faces. The attention to detail on the dovetail fit , on the scales is fantastic and release on the sheath allows for use with gloves. If this the caliber of work that James is turning out he has every right to be proud, it is a thing of beauty . It’s the attention to detail for me, that is the difference between good knife and excellent one . I will have a chance to give a work out over the next couple months, but it looks and feels like it will definitely outlast me.
I have to admit to a little jealousy when I see the standard of work you produce.
Kind Regards
