Creature EL

"Creature EL" Skeletonized Tactical knife, obverse side view in 440c high chromium stainless steel blade, hand stamped tooled leather sheath 
"Creature EL" Skeletonized Tactical Knife (Collaborative by James Beauchamp and Jay Fisher)
  • Size: Length overall: 10" (25.4cm), Blade Length: 4.9" (12.45 cm), Thickness: .252" (6.40mm)
  • Weight: Knife: 5.6 oz. (158.7 grams) Sheath: 5.4 oz. (153.1 grams)
  • Blade: 440C High Chromium Martensitic Stainless Tool Steel, Hardened and Tempered to Rockwell C59
  • Sheath: Hand stamped, tooled, leather shoulder
  • Knife: The Creature EL is an extra length (EL) blade on our original Creature design. The original Creature was designed by a U.S. Air Force Pararescueman for his use in combat search and rescue (CSAR). The Creature is a great knife with a drop point blade shape adapted to tactical use with a half length swage on the spine that reduces the point profile without diminishing spine strength. This knife's deeply hollow ground razor sharp single bevel edge is 4.9 inches long with a respectable curved belly for maximum slicing applications. At over a 1/4 inch thick the blade is substantial at the ricasso, reinforcing the blade to handle junction. The knife is entirely media blasted for a non-glare, easy to care for finish. The handle is skeletonized with a unique design, hand-milled with a handsome outline motif which is reinforced in the center of the handle while substantially reducing blade weight. All of the handle grip areas are contoured, rounded and smoothly finished for a comfortable grip. The thumb rests nicely on the thumb rise and the forefinger groove intensifies a secure grip. The balance point is exactly at the front finger groove for perfect balance. The knife feels light and fast, solid, and with a formidable blade suitable for a variety of cutting chores, and defensive rescue or tactical use. The knife is also good for everyday working chores and even game processing. A truly versatile and useful working knife.
  • Sheath: The sheath is made of 9 to 10 oz. leather shoulder, hand-stamped in a basketweave pattern front and back, and even on the belt loop. It is a high backed leather sheath that protect the wearer and has a belt loop position that provides a perfect placement at the waistline. The front of the sheath is curved and allows just enough handle for unsheathing. The sheath is hand stitched with black polyester thread and is dyed black, and sealed with a water resistant glossy finish. It is tough and light and should easily last a generation.
  • A serious working or tactical knife, extremely light weight yet durable and strong, with a useful and tough sheath.

Thanks, N. S.!

I just wanted to let you know that Creature EL arrived safe and sound at my house today. It's true craftsmanship, and it fits my hand very well. The balance is perfect. Hopefully, I'll never have to use it for protection... but at least I have the rudimentary knowledge of how to use it. For other purposes, well, I'm just excited to see what I can do with it!
Thank you, so much,

N. S.
