  • Knife: Another fine handmade collaborative knife by James Beauchamp and Jay Fisher. This is a very durable and field proven tactical grade knife originally designed by a United States Air Force Pararescueman for his use in combat, search, and rescue. The blade has a cleanly executed hollow grind and a half-length top swage to reduce point resistance while still maintaining superior spine strength. The blade is low maintenance in highly corrosion resistant 440C high chromium martensitic stainless tool steel with a fully tapered tang for perfect weight balance. Notice that the bolsters bed with a pair of pinned and dovetailed canvas Micarta phenolic handle scales. This is a very tough, hard, and durable material that is chemically resistant and waterproof, and the bead blasting gives the phenolic just the right amount of tooth for great purchase. The bolsters are zero-care 304 high chromium, high nickel austenitic stainless steel. The front bolster is radiused and contoured for the forefinger, and the rear bolster features a chamfered 5/16" lanyard hole for extra security. The knife feels comfortable in the hand in either forward or reverse grip. 
  • 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 thermoformed kydex, 5052H32 corrosion resistant high strength aluminum, and 304, 302, and 316 stainless steel locking mechanism and components, bound with nickel plated steel Chicago screws and 18-8 stainless steel machine screws. The die-formed aluminum belt loops are reversible for a variety of wear positions.
  • Another fine custom built knife for a great client!

Thanks, G. T.!

I picked up the knife this morning, and it is exactly what I was looking for. Thanks so much, and do be sure to tell the same to James.
