PJLT CSAR Knife

by James Beauchamp and Jay Fisher

"PJLT" Collaborative CSAR tactical knife, obverse side view, 440C stainless steel blade, 304 stainless steel bolsters, canvas micarta phenolic handle, kydex, aluminum, nickel plated steel sheath with engraved flashplate
"PJLT" USAF Pararescue Tactical Combat Search and Rescue Knife
  • Size: Length overall: 11.2" (28.4 cm), Blade length: 6.25" (15.8 cm), Thickness: .21" (5.5 mm)
  • Weight: 10.8 oz., Sheath: 13.6 oz.
  • Blade: 440C high chromium martensitic stainless tool steel, bead blasted, hardened and tempered to 58HRC
  • 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 another in the series of collaborative works by James Beauchamp and Jay Fisher. This fine knife is for a new Pararescueman for his use and carry in the tactical field. This is my most popular CSAR knife, proven in the field of combat and civilian rescues in marine, mountain, and desert 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 58HRC, will maintain a fine, hard and tough cutting edge for a long time. The blade is custom engraved with the Pararescue Angel, the emblem of USAF Pararescue, with the banner: "USAF Pararescue - That Others May Live"
  • 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. On the sheath face is a removable custom engraved Maroon lacquered brass flash plate, with the PJ's name and date of graduation.
  • This is another fine collaborative work, a super knife and sheath destined for complex and daring USAF Pararescue operations, by one of our best young men this country has. It's an honor for James and I to make these knives and we are honored that the family of these fine young men have supported them in their service to our country.

Thanks, M.L.T and E.T.!
