  • Knife: Custom made for a great client, here's a PJLT with a G10 handle and locking sheath. A beautiful, useful, and popular knife, this one will give decades of service. It's easy to see why this is my most popular knife. The tanto blade is stout and hollow ground for a low relief angle and a very sharp single bevel cutting edge. Add to that the 2" of deep "vampire" serrated rip teeth for the most stubborn cutting chores. The blade has a two-thirds length top swage for reduced point profile, and the spine and handle tang are clean with no filework to hold debris. The fully tapered tang is bolstered with zero care 304 high nickel, high chromium stainless steel bolsters which are dovetailed to bed a striking handle of blue and black layered G10, secured with four 304 stainless steel thick 1/8" pins. G10 is a pressure and heat-formed epoxy laminate that is reinforced with fiberglass, and one of the toughest manmade handle materials made. It's bead blasted for increased texture and tooth to assure a good, tight grip, aided by the quillons on the front and rear bolster. I've domed it in the handle swell for a comfortable shape, which also brings out the layered pattern.
  • Sheath: One of my fine locking, waterproof tactical models on this knife; it has double-thickness kydex over a 5052H32 corrosion resistant, high strength aluminum welt frame. The sheath has all stainless steel locking components for low-care and high usability with security. The sheath is secured with stainless steel machine screws and nickel plated steel Chicago screws. 1.75" wide belt loops are die formed in high strength aluminum, and are reversible for versatile wear.
  • Ultimate Extender: My client requested an additional option, my ultimate sheath belt loop extender. This allows a lower, more traditional placement of the locking sheath on the belt, will accommodate thicker belts and belts up to 2.5" wide, and includes the anti-flop shock cord with snap retention, the diamond pad sharpener, and the magnesium-Firesteel fire starter. Learn more about these useful accessories here.
  • This is a very tough knife and sheath, the same model carried by USAF Pararescuemen, law enforcement, and professional rescue technicians in combat and emergency rescue operations.

Thanks, D. B.!

Hi, Jay.
I apologize that it's taken a little while to let you know that I received my PJLT a couple weeks ago. As always, you have created an awesome piece and a work of art. I have to say that I really like the blue G10 handle material and so does everyone else who looked at it. Thank you for adding that to my knife as it makes it unique at least until you make a few more!
Thank you again Jay. I am always proud to display or use one of your knives and I appreciate the time, care, and effort that goes into each and every one of them.
Until next time,
