Description: From Brian Tighe comes a distinctive take on his classic sculpted flipper. This Tighe Fighter features 3D machined zirconium scales and a stainless damascus blade.
The blade was made from stainless damascus forged by Damasteel in Sweden. A nightmare grind shows Tighe's tremendous skill at the grinder.
Zirconium scales are precision 3D machined for a sure, comfortable grip. Zirconium is a transitional metal that is primarily mined in South Africa and Australia. It is highly resistant to corrosion and scuffing. The scales surround a black G-10 back spacer. The deep carry stainless damascus pocket clip is mounted for tip-up, right-handed 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.
