The Tighe Breaker model from custom maker Brian Tighe is a modern, gentleman's tactical folder that packs a punch. Innovative concepts with organic milling and contours are integral to Brian Tighe's iconic designs and the Tighe Breaker is a perfect example of his unique eye for knife design. An integral framework delivers a minimalist construction which complements the organic design and eye-catching materials. This piece comes with a solid carbon fiber handle and DLC coated RWL34 blade with Zirconium pocket clip and pivot collars.

Blade: Riding on Brian's STBS (Sealed Thrust Bearings System) for ultra smooth and fast operation, the RWL34 blade deploys via dual thumb studs or the index flipper. A compound ground Harpoon Recurve blade provides an excellent combination of strength and cutting performance as well as strong visual lines to complement the overall design of the knife. Black Diamond-Like Carbon or DLC coating the blade lends a stealth look to the knife, providing a durable, corrosion resistant and glare reducing finish. Mirror polished grinds under the DLC delivers a very high-end look to this 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 give the knife a very organic and futuristic look while the carbon fiber pattern that is exposed is visually striking. Built into the handle is a robust button lock mechanism for rock solid lockup and secure operation. Near the button lock is a custom pivot with Zirconium pivot collars for a subtle contrast. The pommel end has a contoured milled channel for lanyard attachment. Includes signature Brian Tighe padded zipper pouch.

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

RWL-34: RWL34, named after the world-famous knife maker Robert W Loveless, was developed by Damasteel as a powder metallurgy version of the Japanese ATS34. RWL34 offers high strength and toughness combined with extreme edge sharpness that is easy to maintain. RWL34 most appreciated features among knife makers are the ease to work with and the ability to mirror polish finish. Preforms similarly to CPM-154.
