You can't judge a great knife on looks alone. Just in case, this one goes way beyond looks. Once again custom knife designer Brian Tighe puts the edge back in knife design. Whether you're a casual knife user, or someone who seeks out the truly ôunique", the Tighe Rod will not disappoint.

Thicker, stainless steel handle scales are attractively skeletonized to reduce weight without sacrificing strength. Titanium Nitride coated blue and then surface finished to create a visually striking color effect.

Solid, blade lockup comes from the Klecker Lock that is uniquely formed within the steel scales creating an innovative, modern Lock Back design.

The Tighe Rod's blade rotates buttery smooth with caged mini ball bearings in the pivot, and its shape is user-minded with a broad sweeping, deep belly, and hollow ground cutting edge.

You can open the blade with use of either its blade flipper, or ambidextrous thumb-studs.

For the user that enjoys a folding pocket knife that looks both unique, and offers great cutting tool pocket utility—the Tighe Rod delivers at first sight.

There are edged tool artisans...and then there’s Brian Tighe. A Canadian Renaissance Man, he is practiced in the art of metallurgy, photography, and tool and die making. It’s what helped him make the leap from a creator of high-quality custom folding knives into the top 10 elite. We were honored to have his Buy Tighe™ blade as our limited edition CRKT® 20th anniversary knife and are releasing the new Tighe Breaker™ fixed blade knife for 2017.
