  • Knife: This is a very special collaborative knife made by James Beauchamp and Jay Fisher, custom made for a Navy Explosive Ordinance Technician's use. The blade originates with our popular Horrocks design, a proven combat knife pattern that has seen plenty of action in the middle east. The blade is over 1/4 inch thick for rigidity and strength. It is very deeply hollow ground which adds great longevity and offers an extremely sharp, single bevel cutting edge. This blade has a 3/4 length top swage to reduce the point profile without sacrificing strength. The recurve of the blade supplies plenty of belly, an aggressive and tough point, and an incredibly sharp concave hollow ground recurve. The grinds are balanced and accurate, with sweeping terminations to distribute forces along the spine. Our client wanted  a modified Hooded Warrior style handle with a noticeable forefinger grove with a nice comfortable belly, and this one is well-built with an extended length handle to balance the heavy blade. The knife is bolstered with 304 high nickel, high chromium, austenitic stainless steel bolsters which are dovetailed and bed a pair of Canvas Micarta Phenolic scales. The scales are mounted with six 1/8 inch 304 stainless steel pins and the rear bolster has a 5/16" through-tang chamfered lanyard hole for security. The knife blade is machine-engraved with the EOD emblem and the handle is cut with Navy anchors on both sides. The Horrocks Warrior is a very massive, solid, well-balanced knife with the fulcrum point at the ricasso and the center of percussion at the widest point of the sweeping belly. This is an extremely well made, professional grade combat weapon and tool.
  • Sheath: The client requested one of our waterproof, combat-grade locking knife sheaths. The sheath has double thickness (.125") kydex panels, thermoformed over a 5052H32 corrosion-resistant aluminum welt frame. The belt loops are corrosion-resistant aluminum, accommodating a 1.75" wide belt, or PALS webbing on MOLLE or other tactical gear, and the belt loops can be moved from high to low positions as well as reversed to be worn on either side. The entire assembly is secured with ten 1/4" shank stainless steel non-glare Chicago screws. The sheath is waterproof with an all stainless steel locking mechanism for ultimate corrosion resistance and dependability.
  • This is a serious EOD package, custom made, and ready for the most challenging operations.

Thanks, M.D.!
