NIRK™ TIGHE 2

Designed by Brian Tighe in Ridgefield, Ontario
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 Lock Back mechanics are such that, the tighter you grip the handle—the 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.

Ridgefield, Ontario 

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.
