Details

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 5 ounces while retaining a beefy +5 mm 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, attention to detail and high-end fit and finish. This piece comes with a milled and contoured glow in the dark infused carbon fiber handle and satin finished RWL34 drop point blade.

Brand New, directly from Brian Tighe, Canada.

Blade: A compound ground Drop Point blade means excellent performance in piercing, slicing and utility cutting with plenty of durability. Equipped with a handsome, hand rubbed satin finish, the RWL34 delivers balanced performance for daily use with minimal maintenance for collectors. The blade is outfitted with dual thumb studs and an 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 glow in the dark infused carbon fiber is used for the entire handle along with a full length black G10 back spacer delivering plenty of visual appeal. Stepped texturing provides a contoured feel as well as traction in the hand which pairs with the milled finger grooves, pommel swell and index guard for a solid, secure grip. The button lock mechanism reduces the weight considerably while maintaining a balanced feel in the hand and providing solid, secure lockup and smooth operation. A large cut out at the pommel exposes the lanyard hole milled back spacer. Includes a custom zippered nylon storage pouch.

Carries via a right hand, tip-up titanium pocket clip with ceramic tension ball.

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.
