(1091K) My Tighe - Veff Serrations - Designed by Brian Tighe
1091K description
Canadian knifemaker Brian Tighe is a true Renaissance Man, with an array of professional skills including tool and die making, metallurgy, engraving and photography. In his St. Catharines, Ontario, workshop, he produces a wide array of custom folders, all with those signature touches that immediately make them stand out as Brian Tighe knives.

We have carefully translated Brian's popular My Tighe custom frame-lock folder into an affordable production line. At first glance, the knife seems like a design exercise until you grasp it and understand that the concave cut scales are craftily shaped to enhance grip, aggressive with contours in just the right places.

Brian's blade design is unique too, with its asymmetrical spine facets, high-hollow grind and deep belly with recurve. We use 1.4116 stainless steel in a high satin finish with our exclusive Combination Razor-Sharp and patented Veff Serrated edges. Designed by knifemaker Tom Veff, these unique scalloped and angled serrations cut through rope and cord smoothly without snagging.

On our "K" model, the blade is coated with black non-reflective titanium nitride for maximum corrosion resistance and the frames are black EDP plated. The result is a non-reflective tactical look.

The frame-lock folder has an open build with heavy-duty 420J2 stainless steel frames and a 6061 T6 aluminum back spacer. The injection-molded black glass filled nylon scales have a carbon fibre texture. Torx® fasteners are used throughout.

Our patented OutBurst assisted opening mechanism instantly springs the blade fully open after you have opened the blade approximately 30°. There are bronze and lubrous washers at the adjustable blade pivot for fast action.

Dual ramped thumb studs allow the My Tighe to be quickly opened with either hand.

The knife features a removable black stainless steel pocket/gear clip.

It's hard to ignore any Brian Tighe design, especially these highly personal work knives. Carry one and you will certainly start a conversation among knife fanciers everywhere. The knife industry was so impressed at the Blade Show in Atlanta, Georgia, it was named the 2006 Imported Knife of the Year.

This "My Tighe" is my first CRKT knife, and it will not be my last. It has proven very versatile, I'm using it way more than I thought I would. It can be easily used with each hand. It is relatively lightweight. The serrated edge is perfect for cutting rope or fishing lines. And to top it off, it just looks awesome

This knife rocks. This is the knife I carry the most when I'm not at the office. Perfect size, awesome blade and springs open with minimal effort. I also have the mini which is an equally as awesome just a little smaller. I work at an office and I don't want to scare the natives. The quality of these knifes is like know other. You will pay more up front for one of these CRKT knifes but I have six now and every single one has that hand built perfect craftsmanship feel. They're identically perfect and I'm more than impressed whit the blade. I treat these knifes like knifes and they hold up well.

I love this knife I have looked for it locally for some time and finally got it as a Christmas gift. Its far too nice to use as my EDC. Its a beautiful knife and a great piece overall. Awesome design and very sharp. I could not be happier. CRKT has hit the mark again.

Lighter than I imagined, and smaller. Opens with some stiffness that gets better with use. It does snap open quickly with authority. Blade is perfectly sharpened. Not my EDC, but a good purchace overall. Like everything I've purchased from CRKT, the piece precision made and is high quality.

Bought this to replace my M16 i'd been using at work to open boxes, cut packing tape and on anything else that just needed cutting at work or home. This design caught my eye when browsing for something new. The serrations are way cooler than the usual serrations, and seriously sharp. The knife feels solid and comfortable. The Outburst really pops the blade out. The liner lock does its job. And my only complaint would be I'm having difficulty unlocking the blade with one hand using my thumb. Could be this is a break-in period issue or maybe a safety one so I dont lose a finger because this knife is serious and no light weight dull blade.

Great feel and weight. Impressive spring open design. Hefty yet easily pocket carried. It has become my go-to knife. Mike 2011-10-24 Detroit, MI

Love it, hands down the best knife I've ever owned. Recieved as a gift and carry it everyday. I can vouch for the excellent factory edge also...I was wearing cargo shorts one day and I must have tripped the assisted opener. I managed to filet from the top of my right hand a piece of skin that was 1/4"W x 1 1/4"L x by about 3/32nds deep. Another 32nd or so and it would have cut into the vein. I didn't even feel it until I pulled out my hand and saw that it was bleeding. It was my own fault and not the knife. I would imagine if it were another brand it would have hurt like hell
