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 carbon fiber handle and horizontally satin finished RWL34 Tanto blade.

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. Finished with a handsome, hand rubbed, horizontal satin, the RWL34 stainless steel blade offers a stunning look and excellent performance for daily use and carry. 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 twill 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.

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.
