Macha Navigator

Macha Navigator Tactical Combat Knife, Obverse Side View: 440c High Chromium Stainless Steel blade, 304 Stainless Steel Bolsters, Canvas Micarta Phenolic Handle, Kydex Aluminum Locking Sheath
Beauchamp-Fisher "Macha Navigator" Tactical Combat Knife
  • Size: Length overall: 11.75" (29.8 cm), Blade Length: 6.80" (17.3 cm), Thickness: .210" (5.3 mm)
  • Weight: Knife: 15 oz. (425 grams) Sheath: 12 oz. (340 grams)
  • Blade: 440c High Chromium Martensitic Stainless Tool Steel, Hardened and Tempered to 59HRC, Bead Blasted
  • Bolsters, Fittings: 304 Austenitic Stainless Steel, Bead Blasted
  • Handle: Canvas Micarta Phenolic
  • Sheath: Locking Kydex, Aluminum, Stainless Steel, with stainless fittings and screws
  • Knife: Another great knife in the series of collaborative works by James Beauchamp and Jay Fisher. This fine knife is an evolution of my  Macha knife adapted for use and carry in a locking sheath. The Macha Navigator has a thick, deeply hollow ground, substantially aggressive blade with a half-length top swage to reduce point profile and 2" of vampire rip teeth serrations for tough cutting chores. The 440c steel type was chosen for high corrosion resistance and is razor sharp. The blade is very thick and strong, and has a fully tapered tang with the balance point is at the fore finger. The 304 stainless steel bolsters are zero care and fully cover the quillons for strength. The bolsters are dovetailed and bed a pair of canvas reinforced Micarta phenolic scales pinned with six stainless steel pins. The rear bolster has a 5/16 inch through-tang lanyard hole for security. The handle is comfortable in either traditional or reverse tactical grip.
  • Sheath: The perfectly fitting sheath is one of my combat grade, waterproof, positively locking models, made from double thickness kydex, 1/4" thick welts of 5052H32 corrosion resistant aluminum, and secured with solid stainless steel Chicago screws for ultimate corrosion resistance. All the locking components are also stainless steel, so this is a marine grade sheath suitable for immersion in marine environments. The reversible aluminum belt loops will accommodate a standard 1.75" military web utility belt, and should hang on most belts or tactical gear.
  • This is a real tactical combat knife suitable for all environments, highly corrosion resistant. This is, simply, one of the best combat tactical knives and sheaths made.

Thanks, C. E.!
