Product Info Guide
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. Catherines, 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 four models in bead-blast finish and two 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. Brians 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 Combination Razor-Sharp and Triple-Point serrated edges. On our K models, the blade is coated with black non-reflective titanium nitride for maximum corrosion resistance. 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 on the bright models, and black EDP plated on the K models. The injection-molded black Zytel scales have a carbon fiber texture. Torx fasteners are used throughout. Each model is available in conventional non-assisted opening models, or with our patented OptiFast assisted opening mechanism, which instantly springs the blade fully open after you have opened the blade 30 degrees. All have bronze and Teflon bearings at the adjustable blade pivot for smooth, fast action. Dual ramped thumb studs allow the My Tighe to be quickly opened with either hand. All models feature a removable black Teflon-plated 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. Blade Length: 3. 625 inch Steel: 1. 4116, 55-57 HRC Closed Length: 4. 50 inch Overall Length: 8. 125 inch Weight: 5. 6oz
