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 Tighe Fighter has some details that demand your attention!
This Tighe Fighter features a satin finished 3.8 inch blade made from RWL-34 stainless steel. RWL-34 is a premium powder metallurgy cutlery steel manufactured by ERASTEEL 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. As if the excellent steel wasn't enough, Brian Tighe created a new process her calls carbon fiber san mai! Brian used a high temperature adhesive to bond carbon fiber to the sides of the blade after the blade was heat treated. The results are absolutely stunning!
The blade is well centered and the action is incredibly smooth. It can be deployed easily using the ambidextrous flipper or the dual thumbstuds. A button lock makes closing the blade with one hand a breeze!
Carbon fiber scales are precision 3D machined for a sure, comfortable grip. The scales surround a black G10 backbar that will accommodate a lanyard. The titanium pocket clip with ceramic retention ball is mounted for tip-up, right-handed carry.
Excellent work throughout!
