TIGHE RADE™

Designed by Brian Tighe in Ridgefield, Ontario
In hand or in action, this is one to show off.

Brian Tighe doesn’t know how to do anything subtle. Case in point: his latest everyday carry folder with a button lock screams style. The aluminum handle features contoured, textured grooves. A compound grind blade deploys swiftly with a flipper or ambidextrous dual thumb studs. About the only thing it doesn’t do well is sit idly; it’s apt to go on a tirade.

In hand or in action, this is one to show off. Brian Tighe doesn’t know how to do anything subtle. Case in point: his latest everyday carry folding knife with a button lock screams style. The aluminum handle features contoured, textured grooves. A compound ground blade deploys swiftly with a flipper or ambidextrous dual thumb studs. About the only thing it doesn’t do well is sit idly; it’s apt to go on a tirade.

Designer Brian Tighe of Ridgeville, Ontario, Canada, upped the ante when he created the Tighe Rade™. From tip to tail this one-of-a-kind, high-tech folder boasts looks that seem more at home on a fighter jet than a knife. It’s a welcomed new addition to the impressive line of award-winning knives that Tighe has become so well known for designing.

The tip is ground and reinforced for stronger cutting applications, while closer to the handle it’s perfect for finer cutting tasks and wire stripping. And with its highly stylized aluminum handle and multiple usage blade, the Tighe Rade™ is packed with substance and style. The unique design maximizes overall performance and ease of sharpening, and the easy to operate and disengage button lock keeps everything secure while it’s open.

The sophisticated and modern Tighe Rade™ is one part smooth operator mixed with one part showpiece.

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.
