CRKT has transformed the popular Brian Tighe custom frame-lock folder into an affordable production line! Brian’s uniqe blade features asymmetrical spine facets, high-hollow grind and deep belly with recurve. CRKT uses 1.4116 stainless steel in a high satin finish (partially serrated). This knife features a blade that 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 black EDP plated on the “K” models. The injection-molded black Zytel® scales have a carbon fibre texture. Torx® fasteners are used throughout.
These knives feature the OutBurst™ 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.
