PJLT Collaborative Knife

by James Beauchamp and Jay Fisher

PJLT CSAR collaborative knife by James Beauchamp and Jay Fisher in 440c high chromium stainless steel blade, 304 stainless steel bolsters, micarta phenolic handle, kydex, aluminum, steel sheath
PJLT Collaborative CSAR tactical knife
  • Size: Length overall: 11.2" (28.4 cm), Blade length: 6" (15.2 cm), Thickness: .2" (5 mm)
  • Weight: 10.5 oz., Sheath: 9.3 oz.
  • Blade: 440C high chromium martensitic stainless tool steel, bead blasted, hardened and tempered to 59HRC
  • Bolsters, pins: 304 austenitic high chromium, high nickel stainless steel
  • Handle: Canvas Micarta Phenolic
  • Sheath: Kydex, 5052H32 corrosion resistant aluminum, nickel plated steel
  • Knife: This is a very special knife. Though you may have noticed that it is a frequent pattern of mine, this PJLT is the foundation of a new direction for me, and for the Enchanted Spirits Studio. You might have noticed that the maker's mark is that of James Beauchamp, in addition to my own mark. James has graciously offered his services in helping make some of the new tactical knives in the studio. James is my son-in-law, and I'm proud to have him in the shop, learning and making the same extremely high quality custom combat, rescue, and tactical knives that I've enjoyed making over the past thirty years. These new Beauchamp-Fisher collaborative knives are made to the same quality standards and execution as my knives, and both of our hands are dedicated to these fine knives. Both James and I are proud of this new direction and expansion in the combat and tactical knife field, and we both look forward to making many more knives together!
    The knife is the PJLT, the Pararescue LighT combat and tactical knife used by Pararescuemen in military rescue and combat operations. The blade is fully hollow ground, with a thick spine for support and a half-length swage to reduce point profile while conserving strength. The blade has 2" of vampire rip teeth serrations, and a fully tapered tang to reduce handle weight and maintain balance. The blade is bolstered in the critical areas with two pairs of dovetailed 304 stainless steel bolsters, a zero care high nickel, high chromium stainless steel. The bolsters bed a pair of canvas reinforced Micarta phenolic scales, and the entire knife, blade, bolsters and handle are all bead blasted for good tactile grip and subdued wear. The edges are, of course, razor keen, and at 59HRC, will maintain a fine, hard cutting edge for a long time.
  • Sheath: The sheath James and I constructed is made of double thickness kydex, thermoformed over a .250" double layered 5052H32 corrosion resistant aluminum frame, secured with nickel plated steel Chicago screws. The sheath has reversible belt loops for a variety of carry and wear options.
  • This is a fine collaborative work, a super knife and sheath destined for decades of service and value. This knife will be used by a great client who is a rescue specialist in an urban search and rescue team.

Thanks, C. P.!
