Columbia River 5265 Tighe Rod Folder 3.57" Blade, Stainless Steel Handles
CR5265: Tighe Rod - Designed by Brian Tighe
You can't judge a great knife on looks alone. Just in case, this one goes way beyond looks.
Once again custom knife designer Brian Tighe puts the edge back in knife design. Whether you're a casual knife user, or someone who seeks out the truly "unique", the Tighe Rod will not disappoint.
Thicker, stainless steel handle scales are attractively skeletonized to reduce weight without sacrificing strength. Titanium Nitride coated blue and then surface finished to create a visually striking color effect.
Solid, blade lockup comes from the Klecker Lock that is uniquely formed within the steel scales creating an innovative, modern lockback design.
The Tighe Rod's blade rotates buttery smooth with caged mini ball bearings in the pivot, and its shape is user-minded with a broad sweeping, deep belly, and hollow ground cutting edge.
You can open the blade with use of either its blade flipper, or ambidextrous thumb-studs.
For the user that enjoys a folding pocket knife that looks both unique, and offers great cutting tool pocket utility—the Tighe Rod delivers at first sight.

The original locking mechanism. It can be found mid spine or at the bottom of the handle, and it provides tight lockup that will wear well.
A very widely used EDC steel, AUS-8 can take a very nice edge while also maintaining moderate edge holding and corrosion resistance properties.
Includes a pocket clip for easy accessibility and a more secure carry.
Stainless Steel knife handles provide strength and durability while using chromium oxide to create a rust-resistant barrier.
