Description: Brian Tighe creates unique, functional and visually appealing knives of the highest quality. His blades are the product of 25 years of experience in metallurgy artistry and tactical expertise. This integral Tighe Down Flipper has incredible details that demand your attention.
This Tighe Down Flipper features a stunning blade made from high performing Damacore forged by Damasteel in Sweden. This exciting steel composition combines a high performing core of nitrogen based N11X, surrounded by alternating outer layers of stainless damascus combining RWL34 and PMC27 martensitic stainless steels. N11X has a comparable composition to nitrogen based Vanax SuperClean which is known for having both high wear resistance and high toughness against chipping or cracking. The blade features Tighe's compound nightmare grind and can be easily deployed using the ambidextrous flipper or the thumbstuds. A button lock makes closing the blade with one hand a breeze! The blade has smooth action and is perfectly centered.
The fully integral handle is machined from one solid piece of Black Timascus, showing off Brian's exceptional machining skills. Alternating layers of titanium and zirconium produce a stunning damascene pattern. Timascus pivot collars surround custom pivot screws. The handle has been 3D contoured to provide multiple comfortable grip options. The Timascus pocket clip with ceramic retention ball is mounted for right-handed, tip-up carry.
Excellent work throughout!
