The all-new Tighe Fighter custom model direct from maker Brian Tighe means business. It's a bit stockier and trends more toward the tactical end of the spectrum for Brian's designs. The handle is more palm-filling and the blade stock is a whopping 0.19 inches thick. A Tighe Fighter Flipper is beefy, but Brian keeps this beast a lightweight carry at just over 4.50 ounces.
The Blade: A compound ground tanto-styled blade means wicked piercing power with tough endurance. All of the grinds here have Brian's cracked ice finish (light tumbling/polished) while the flats have a horizontal satin finish. Brian's signature appears on the front while it's outfitted with dual thumb stud or integral flipper deployment. Silky smooth operation thanks to Brian's ceramic ball bearings STBS (Sealed Thrust Bearings) system.
The Handle: 3D machined carbon fiber is used for the entire handle minus the titanium backspacer. No liners needed thus reducing the weight considerably. It's well-balanced with finger grooves that just lock into your hand. Stepped texturing throughout for a solid grip. Large lanyard window cut out at the bottom with large button lock for secured cutting.
The new Tighe Fighter from maker Brian Tighe is another home run. It's modern, dramatic and sophisticated looks will have you coming back for more. Included is a tumbled titanium Tighe signature pocket clip with ceramic ball retention for tip up carry and a signature zipper pouch.
