Spyderco C198TIP Tighe Stick Folding Knife 3.9" S90V Satin Blade, Titanium Handles
SP198TIP: C198TIP Tighe Stick
Custom knifemaker Brian Tighe has earned an enviable reputation for crafting folding knives that are an impressive blend of sophisticated design and meticulous craftsmanship. His first collaboration with Spyderco faithfully captures the magic of his handmade knives and translates it into a truly exceptional factory-made folder called the Tighe Stick. The Tighe Stick's dramatic upswept blade is saber ground from high-performance CPM S90V powder-metallurgy stainless steel to offer a superior balance of strength and low-friction edge geometry. Its faceted tanto-style point ensures tip strength and is accentuated by a scalloped swedge on the blade's spine. Spyderco's Trademark Round Hole in the blade stands proud, offering exceptional leverage for quick one-handed opening with either hand. The Tighe Stick's distinctive handle consists of two solid titanium scales that are precision CNC machined to create a breathtaking 3-D sculptured pattern that also provides texture and enhanced grip security. The reverse scale also forms the foundation of a high-strength Reeve Integral Lock (R.I.L.) mechanism that locks the blade securely when opened. Open-backed construction reduces the knife's weight and simplifies cleaning, while a reversible clip offers convenient carry, immediate access, and a choice of left or right-side tip-down carry.
