Once your eyes lock on to the artistry in the skeletonized handle, you begin to see the true purity of the Nirk™ Tighe form.
Brian Tighe and Glenn Klecker reinterpreted the Klecker NIRK™ folder with stainless steel being stamped and machined into a very dynamic, functional design. The steel frame is not only visually exciting, but offers a formidable cutting tool handle as well. Glenn's patent pending integral lockback mechanics are such that, the tighter you grip the handlethe stronger the blade lock-up. Brian's drop point blade design flows nicely from the handle shape, and its subtle recurve along the cutting edge is a nice touch as well. To keep the blade action smooth, a specially caged mini ball bearing system affords fast and smooth operation. A custom removable stainless steel clothing/gear clip is provided.
Select from either the NIRK Tighe or the new smaller sized NIRK Tighe 2 to get the ultimate in mechanical simplicity masterfully designed into a knife form that takes metal work to a whole new level.
Great knife, debated on the larger 5250 Nirk Tighe knife and glad I got the smaller 5240 Nirk Tighe 2. The knife is very easy to open-full with one click of finger, looks and feels great.

My wife bought me one of these for Father's day, after I had gifted one to my nephew for his 18th. Birthday. I almost didn't want to give it to him I liked it so much A beautiful unique knife that gets comments from all who see it. Opening is so fast and smooth folks can't believe it's not assisted opening Super sharp and rock solid blade lock makes this high on my EDC rotation
