The Tighe Breaker model from custom maker Brian Tighe is a modern, gentleman’s tactical pocket knife. Progressive knife designs are Mr. Tighe’s forte and the organic lines of the Tighe Breaker are a testament to his unique eye to knife design. An integral construction keeps the lines of this knives very clean, while the Moku-Ti handle and Damasteel blade make this knife functional art that stands out from the crowd.
The Blade: The Damasteel blade glides on Brian’s STBS (Sealed Thrust Bearings System) for some of the smoothest operation on the planet and deploys via dual thumb studs or the index flipper. A compound ground recurve blade provides an excellent combination of strength and cutting performance as well as strong visual lines to complement the overall design of the knife.
The Handle: A solid piece of Moku-Ti is milled to create the integral handle. The fluted pattern on the sides give the knife a very organic and futuristic look. The milled handles and finger grooves provide excellent security in the hand. Built into the handle is a tough button lock used to hold the blade open. Near the button lock is a custom pivot with Zirconium pivot collars for a subtle contrast. The pommel end has a contoured milled channel for lanyard attachment.
The Tighe Breaker is a modern design with timeless performance. This custom folder includes a tip-up, right hand, fluted Zirconium pocket clip and signature Brian Tighe zipper pouch.
