On our "K" model, the blade is coated with black non-reflective titanium nitride for maximum corrosion resistance and the frames are black EDP plated. The result is a non-reflective tactical look.
The frame-lock folder has an open build with heavy-duty 420J2 stainless steel frames and a 6061 T6 aluminum back spacer. Frames are bead-blast. The injection-molded black glass filled nylon scales have a carbon fibre texture. Torx fasteners are used throughout.
Our patented OutBurst assisted opening mechanism instantly springs the blade fully open after you have opened the blade approximately 30-degrees. All models have bronze and lubrous washers at the adjustable blade pivot for fast action.
Dual ramped thumb studs allow the My Tighe to be quickly opened with either hand.
All models feature a removable black stainless steel pocket/gear clip.
It's hard to ignore any Brian Tighe design, especially these highly personal work knives. Carry one and you will certainly start a conversation among knife fanciers everywhere. The knife industry was so impressed at the Blade Show in Atlanta, Georgia, it was named the 2006 Imported Knife of the Year.
