The Tighe Fighter Flipper from Canadian custom knife maker Brian Tighe is his answer to the call for a modern, tactical folder. The contoured handle fills the hand and thanks to the full Carbon Fiber construction keeps the weight under 4.5 ounces while retaining a beefy +3/16 inch thick blade! The Tighe Fighter is a modern tactical design with a dramatic and sophisticated look that catches the eye with Brian's signature organic lines and and attention to detail with fit and finish. This piece comes with a milled and contoured carbon fiber handle and DLC San Mai blade of CPM-154 and S90V.

Brand New, directly from Brian Tighe.

Blade: A compound ground Tanto point-styled blade means excellent utility cutting with tough endurance. The San Mai construction of the blade gives it a two tone finish under the black DLC (Diamond-Like Carbon) with a more polished finish on the CPM154 outer layers and a matte finish on the S90V core. The blade is outfitted with dual thumb studs or integral flipper for deployment on the ceramic ball bearing STBS (Sealed Thrust Bearing) system. The blade is marked with Brian's signature logo on the front.

Handle: 3D milled and contoured carbon fiber is used for the entire handle with a black G10 backspacer. The use of a button lock mechanism means that no liners are needed thus reducing the weight considerably. It's well-balanced with finger grooves that lock the knife into your hand. Stepped texturing throughout enhances the grip. A large window cut out at the bottom of the G10 backspacer allows for lanyard attachment.

Carries via a DLC coated, right hand, tip-up titanium pocket clip with ceramic tension ball. Includes a custom zippered nylon storage pouch.

About San Mai:A San Mai is a Japanese technique that typically refers to a blade with a hardened steel core with either iron or stainless forming a jacket on both sides. In the case of this blade we have CPM-154 forming the outer layers with CPM S90V forming the core. This combination provides high performance wear resistance from the S90V with enhanced toughness and corrosion resistance from the CPM-154 for a power house of performance.
