Product Details

Columbia River Knife and Tool 1091K My Tighe Black Titanium Nitride Frame-Lock Folder Knife - Veff Serrations

Features: Canadian knifemaker Brian Tighe is a true Renaissance Man, with an array of professional skills including tool and die making, metallurgy, engraving and photography. In his St. Catharines, Ontario, workshop, he produces a wide array of custom folders, all with those signature touches that immediately make them stand out as Brian Tighe knives. We have carefully translated Brian's popular My Tighe custom frame-lock folder into an affordable production line, with two models in bead-blast finish and one in black. At first glance, the knife seems like a design exercise until you grasp it and understand that the concave cut scales are craftily shaped to enhance grip, aggressive with contours in just the right places. Brian's blade design is unique too, with its asymmetrical spine facets, high-hollow grind and deep belly with recurve. We use 1.4116 stainless steel in a high satin finish and offer both Razor-Sharp and our exclusive Combination Razor-Sharp and patented Veff Serrated edges. Designed by knifemaker Tom Veff, these unique scalloped and angled serrations cut through rope and cord smoothly without snagging. 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. OutBurst Assisted Opening -
