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. His integral Tighe Down model has incredible details that demand your attention.
This Tighe Down Flipper's blade is RWL-34 stainless steel. RWL-34 is a premium powder metallurgy cutlery steel manufactured by Damasteel in Söderfors, Sweden. Because it is made from rapidly solidified powders, the microstructure of the steel is much more uniform. This gives the steel much higher strength and resistance to cracks and chips. Tighe's unique compound nightmare ground blade can be easily deployed using the ambidextrous flipper or the thumbstuds. A button lock makes closing the blade with one hand a breeze!
The ergonomic carbon fiber handle is fluted, providing a beautiful, yet incredibly comfortable grip. Most makers would have created two slabs of carbon fiber and set a spacer material in between. This integral handle is machined from one solid piece of carbon fiber, showing Brian's tremendous skill as a machinist. This construction keeps the knife incredibly lightweight while providing exceptional durability and strength. A titanium pivot collar surrounds the custom pivot. The knife is finished with a matching fluted titanium deep carry pocket clip that is mounted for right-side, tip-up carry.
An exceptional knife for daily carry or the collection!
