BTKFFDSWTIM: Custom Full-Dress Tighe Fighter Folding Knife, Shock Wave Tighe-Mascus
Brian Tighe Knives
This Custom Tighe Fighter is one beautiful tactical flipper, created especially for the 2018 Tactical Knife Invitational in Las Vegas. The 3.875" compound ground tanto blade is made from heat colored Damasteel with excellent jimping on the thumb ramp. Brian loves working with Damasteel because he feels that he gets better performance and more uniform finishes on this steel vs. traditional Damascus. It's a typical Brian Tighe style design which pairs an intricate, ergonomic handle with a wicked cool, functional blade.
The handle measures 5.125" in length, made from sculpted Shock Wave Tighe-Mascus with a matching milled backspacer. The blade rides super smoothly on washers so dirt and dust are less likely to contaminate the pivot and slow the action. You're gonna think it's assisted the action is so good and the blade just drops closed when you actuate the push button lock. The sculpted pocket clip is made from heat colored Damascus to match the blade and it features Todd Begg's ceramic retention ball. This is a superb design, has an impeccable fit and finish, and one of the most visually appealing knives we've ever carried.
