Description: Brian Tighe produces 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 new sculpted integral Tighe Breaker 3.5 model has some incredible details that demand your attention. Not only is the Tighe Breaker 3.5 more pocket friendly than the larger Tighe Breaker, but the handle is machined from a solid piece of uni-directional carbon fiber, showing Brian's tremendous skill as a machinist.
This Tighe Breaker 3.5 Integral Flipper features a stainless damascus blade. The raised clip blade has incredibly smooth action and a perfectly centered blade. 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!
The ergonomic uni-directional carbon fiber handle has been heavily 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 It is a true feat of machining -- and could be accomplished by very few knifemakers! This construction keeps the knife incredibly light, making it weigh in at a mere 2.8 ounces! A zirconium pivot collar surrounds the custom pivot. Zirconium is a transitional metal that is primarily mined in South Africa and Australia. It is highly resistant to corrosion and scuffing. The knife is finished with a matching fluted zirconium deep carry pocket clip that is mounted for right-handed, tip-up carry.
This is an exceptional knife from Brian Tighe that you won't want to miss!
