CR5220: 5220 BT Fighter Compact, Designed by Brian Tighe
CRKT

A machinist's masterpiece. Take a look at a knife with brilliant contours and a tactical soul and you can bet it came from the shop of Brian Tighe. The BT Fighter Compact everyday carry folding knife is no exception with its layered, sculpted handle and deep grooves. If there was any need for further proof that Brian is a master machinist, the BT Fighter is it.

Modeled closely after his Tighe Fighter custom design, the BT Fighter comes from Brian Tighe's shop in Ridgeville, Ontario replete with all the signature Tighe design details. The stonewashed stainless steel drop point blade is balanced with a swedge making for a strong, reinforced tip. The handle is equally as eye-catching with a layered look carved of one sturdy slab of glass-reinforced nylon. The backspacer and deep grooves help you keep your grip. Deployed with a flipper, the blade opens smoothly and quickly thanks to the ball bearing pivot system. It's held in place and disengaged with an easy-to-use button lock.

The super deep carry keeps it nearly undetectable in your pocket and a carved space through the clip is built for a lanyard.

When artistry meets exceptional usability.

Cons: None
I love this weirdo knife!
I've moved this knife from wishlist to cart more than a few times, unsure if I wanted it.It's not everything I expected: It's much smaller than you'd think. Despite the odd shape/design it is very well built. I like this one for fairly simple tasks. It's not a hunting knife.I would recommend it if anyone's looking for a good CRKT to carry. I'm fond of its weird design, it's a conversation starter!I think that the price is a bit too much for what it is, though.

Exceeded expectations!
I wasn’t expecting a $40 button lock flipper to be great. But alas, this is great. Came sharp, centered, action is wonderfully fidgety. Not the most comfortable handle for hard use, weird shape. But I can’t even knock it for that! The clip with the retention ball is great. Only on my knives that are 5X the price do I find this feature. Highly recommended.
