  • Weight: 9.5 oz. (269 grams), Sheath: 10.0 oz. (284 grams)
  • Blade: 440C high chromium martensitic stainless tool steel, bead blasted, hardened and tempered to 58.5 HRC
  • Bolsters, pins: 304 austenitic high chromium, high nickel stainless steel

  • Sheath: Positively Locking, Thermoforming Kydex, 5052H32 corrosion resistant high strength aluminum, 304, 316, 302 stainless steel mechanism, nickel plated steel Chicago screws
  • Knife: This is another in the series of collaborative works by James Beauchamp and Jay Fisher. This fine knife is for a member of the US Army Rapid Equipping Force for his use and carry in the tactical field. This is my most popular CSAR knife, proven in the field of combat in marine, mountain, and desert operations. The blade is high chromium, highly corrosion resistant 440C martensitic stainless tool steel, 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 extremely corrosion resistant stainless steel. The bolsters bed a pair of canvas reinforced micarta phenolic scales, and the entire knife, blade, bolsters and handle are bead blasted for good tactile grip and subdued wear. The edges are, of course, razor keen, and at 58.5 HRC, will maintain a fine, hard and tough cutting edge for a very long time. The blade is custom machine engraved as a reminder of its purpose.
  • Sheath: The sheath James and I constructed is made of double thickness kydex, thermoformed over a .250" double layered 5052H32 corrosion resistant, high strength aluminum frame, secured with nickel plated steel Chicago screws. The sheath is fully and positively locking and waterproof. All of the components of the locking mechanism are stainless steel for ultimate corrosion resistance and longevity. This is, simply, one of the finest knife sheaths made for the theatre of combat. The sheath has reversible belt loops for a variety of carry and wear options. On the sheath face is a removable custom engraved blue lacquered brass flash plate. 
  • This is another great collaborative work, a super knife and sheath destined for tactical combat and defensive operations. It's an honor for James and I to make these knives for the men who are in the line of fire.

Thanks, T. A.!

I can’t tell you the happiness and the pure joy that you brought me; the engraving that I asked for was very simple, yet you went the extra mile to make it a true work of art!
I can’t thank James and you enough for the outstanding work that you have done – I will wear this knife with pride and every time I strap it on will think of you and James and the work and craftsmanship that went into the making of it.
Thank you for your work and your dedication that you put into the knives that are destined for the Soldiers, Marines, Airmen and Civilians that protect this great country.
My very best regards,
Tommy “Mbogo” Allen
