United States Air Force Pararescue "Kight" Commemorative CSAR Knife

This is one of my early PJ knives, and it is named for the Father of Pararescue, Brigadier General Dick Kight. He was credited in the early days of Pararescue (Korean era) for the idea of using helicopters for saving the lives of airmen and front line soldiers. He was also credited with approving the idea of using a special group of highly trained men, parachute jumpers, to rescue downed pilots. This became the PJs, our nation's most highly trained, professional combat rescue service.

"It is my duty as a Pararescueman to save life and to aid the injured. I will be prepared at all times to perform my assigned duties quickly and efficiently, placing these duties before personal desires and comforts. These things I do, that others may live."

--Brig. General Dick Kight

This knife is a special commemorative, made for a deserving Pararescueman who has served our country well. The knife has a 440C high chromium stainless steel blade, hollow ground and mirror polished, with some special touches. It is etched in high resolution on both sides, with the Pararescue angel, the Pararescue creed, and a Pavehawk helicopter with a PJ dangling on the end of the lead. The obverse side has a pair of Pararescue Feet, electroformed in heavy plate of Green Gold. It is numbered #002. My early PJ commemorative knives were numbered, but it quickly became clear that I could not keep up with the numbers on all of them, so I discontinued the idea. This early knife has 304 stainless steel bolsters, mirror polished and dovetailed, and mounted solidly on the fully tapered, fully fileworked knife tang. The handle is hard, tough, brightly polished Petrified Palm Wood gemstone, actually a jasper, which is spaced at the tang with brass fileworked spacers for an accent. The sheath for the knife is made of co-extruded acrylic, engraved with the Pararescue Angel emblem, and is a locking model in high strength aluminum, nickel plated steel, and all stainless steel components.

A fitting knife to honor the Father of Pararescue and those who live by his creed.
