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 Arctic Storm FatCarbon carbon fiber handle and San Mai Tanto blade with CPM-S90V core.

Brand New, directly from Brian Tighe.

Blade: A compound ground Tanto blade means excellent performance in piercing, slicing and utility cutting with plenty of durability. The San Mai construction of the blade gives it a two-tone finish under the fine stone wash with a more polished finish on the CPM-154 outer layers and a matte finish on the S90V core. San Mai construction delivers enhanced durability and corrosion resistance with exceptional edge retention. 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 Arctic Storm FatCarbon carbon fiber is used for the entire handle along with a full length black G10 back spacer. 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 use of a button lock mechanism means that no liners are needed reducing the weight considerably while maintaining a balanced feel in the hand. A large cut out at the pommel exposes the back spacer which is milled for lanyard attachment. Includes a custom zippered nylon storage pouch.

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

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 as well as resistance to scratching from the CPM-154 for a power house of performance.
