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.
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.
Patented* OutBurst assisted opening mechanism, which instantly springs the blade fully open after you have opened the blade 30 degrees.
Dual ramped thumb studs allow the My Tighe to be quickly opened with either hand.
Feature a removable black Teflon-plated 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.
