  • Knife: "Tien" is the Vietnamese name for spirit or angel. This is a very special knife. It was designed by and made in collaboration with Etienne Beauchamp, my grandson. Another reason he settled on this name is because it's also short for Etienne in our western language. This is his first collaborative knife we've made together, and we did a great job on it. The blade design is a slender tanto style with plenty of thick spine to support the hollow ground blade. The forward edge has a gentle curve and so does the main edge, with a bit of recurve to offer a knife with a wickedly sharp cutting edge. The tip of the blade has plenty of thickness for heavy use, and we didn't include a swage, so the spine is extra strong. This is a superior knife in design, materials, and durability that makes it useable for field, combat, rescue, and survival use. The blade is super corrosion resistant and tough 440C high chromium stainless steel, the same fine tool steel used on most of my tactical combat and professional service duty knives, chosen for its superb reputation. This is the same tool steel used on corrosion resistant ball bearings, shear blades, and high pressure valve seats in industry. This is a great steel. The long blade is well-reinforced by a substantial ricasso. At the butt of the handle is a rear finger ring and a talon (or persuader) used as a defensive adjunct and a non-lethal addition to the tactical blade. This unique design  (ring and talon) allows the knife to be very comfortable and useful in reverse grip, with the thumb laid across the talon and supported by the contoured and rounded finger ring. The tang of the blade is fully tapered for a great balance, and the balance point is exactly at the front quillon. The knife is bolstered with 304 high nickel, high chromium austenitic stainless steel, the same great, tough, and zero-care stainless steel used in corrosion resistant nuts, bolts and fasteners. It is extremely tough. The bolsters are dovetailed to bed a pair of hard and durable G10 handle scales. These scales are made of a fiberglass and industrial epoxy composite, with laminate layers in blue and black. The sealed and bedded handle is secured with the addition of four 304 stainless steel pins. This is a powerful, sleek, and strong tactical knife, ready for any duty, chore, or service, made with the finest materials we are known for.
  • Sheath: We added one of our extremely well-made, locking, waterproof tactical sheaths for this knife, the best tactical combat knife sheath style made on earth. The sheath is made of double-thickness kydex that is (.125") thick for strength, durability, stability, and longevity, and is then hot-formed over a 5052H32 corrosion resistant, high strength aluminum alloy welt frame, secured with stainless steel Chicago screws and waterproof cement. All exposed components are treated for a non-glare, muted finish. The sheath has all stainless steel locking components in 302, 304, and 316 austenitic stainless steel for low-care, high corrosion resistance, and durability while positively locking the knife in the sheath, even when worn upside down. The machine screws and reinforcements are also stainless steel. 1.75" wide belt loops are die-formed in high strength aluminum, and are reversible for versatile wear in any position, while being able to be located in several positions along the welts for a huge variety of wear options. There is a reason this type of sheath is our most popular, and why our military clients insist on the "bulletproof" design and construction.
  • Accessories: This knife design and construction will accommodate our entire accessory package if required, the belt loop extenders and accessories, and the HULA tactical lamp. We will be happy to add these if required (at additional charge). 
  • This is Etienne's and my first collaborative knife for sale, and from the interest and dedication of this fine young man, it will be a standard bearer for many fine knives to come. As a grandfather, I'm honored that our young men have an interest and passion for building a fine handmade work of art to such a high standard. This knife is super tough, strong, and durable, and will quite literally last for generations.

Thanks, G. L.!
