The Small Tighe Breaker from custom maker Brian Tighe is a modern, gentleman's tactical folder that packs a punch while being compact and discreet for daily carry and use. Innovative style with organic contoured milling is the cornerstone of Brian Tighe's iconic work, and the Tighe Breaker is a perfect example of his unique eye for knife design. The minimalist integral construction delivers clean lines which complement the organic shapes and eye-catching materials. This piece comes with a solid carbon fiber handle, black DLC coated RWL34 clip point blade with matching hardware and zirconium pocket clip.

Brand new, direct from Brian Tighe, Canada.

Blade: Riding on Brian's STBS (Sealed Thrust Bearings System) the sub-3.5" RWL34 stainless steel blade deploys via dual thumb studs or an index flipper tab for fast, smooth operation. The compound ground clip point blade is stylish and utilitarian, providing excellent strength and cutting performance with strong, clean lines complementing the overall design. Durable black DLC coating is applied to the blade for enhanced corrosion resistance and discreet carry and use. The blade has a two-tone finish under the DLC, satin flats and polished grinds, delivering a very high-end look to this subdued gentleman's tactical flipper.

Handle: A solid piece carbon fiber is milled to create the integral handle with fluted milling and finger grooves providing excellent security in the hand. The fluted pattern on the sides gives the knife an organic and futuristic look, while exposing the carbon fiber pattern for added visual appeal. A robust button lock mechanism delivers rock solid lockup and secure operation. The Small Tighe Breaker is slim and easy to carry while still offering a full, four finger grip, and premium details like the DLC coated custom pivot hardware with zirconium collars and end milled channel for lanyard attachment. Includes signature Brian Tighe padded zipper pouch.

Carries via a tip-up, right hand, fluted zirconium pocket clip.

RWL34: RWL34, named after the world-famous knife maker Robert W Loveless, was developed by Damasteel as a powder metallurgy version of 154CM/ATS-34. Similar to CPM154, RWL34 offers better edge retention than D2 with good toughness, corrosion resistance and ease of sharpening. Knife makers appreciate the ease of machining and finishing, being capable of taking a mirror polish.
