Description: From Brian Tighe comes a distinctive take on his classic sculpted flipper. This Tighe Fighter features 3D machined TPT Quartz scales and a stainless damascus blade.
The blade was made from stainless damascus forged by Damasteel in Sweden. The broad blade nicely shows off the elegant pattern inherent to the steel. The action is super-smooth and the blade well centered.
TPT (Thin Ply Technology) Quartz scales are precision 3D machined for a sure, comfortable grip. This unique material was developed for Richard Mille watch cases. 45 micron thin layers of carbon are combined with 4 micron quartz-fiber filament. This composite combines strength with beauty and lightness. It is so revolutionary that it immediately won the JEC World 2016 Innovation Award. Thanks to the flat layers of the NTPT carbon and TPT Quartz and the curved shapes of Brian Tighe's scales, the layers become exposed at different points when machined, just like stratified rock layers in the Grand Canyon. The resulting damascene appearance is tremendous!
The scales surround a titanium back spacer. The stainless damascus deep carry titanium pocket clip is mounted for right-handed, tip-up carry. Dual titanium thumb studs make for easy right or left handed opening -- though you'll likely open the knife using the flipper mechanism. The blade is closed with a right handed button lock. Piercing at the back of the handle allows for the easy addition of a lanyard.
Exceptional work throughout.
