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 Unidirectional, integral Carbon Fiber handle and Damasteel Stainless Damascus blade make this knife functional art that stands out from the crowd.
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 Spear Point blade provides an excellent combination of strength and cutting performance as well as strong visual lines to complement the overall design of the knife.
Handle: A solid piece Unidirectional Carbon Fiber is milled to create the integral handle. The fluted pattern on the sides give the knife a very organic and futuristic look while the carbon fiber pattern that is exposed is visually striking. 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.
Damasteel: Damasteel is a high hardness, high corrosion resistant steel that combines two martensitic stainless steels – RWL 34 and PMC 27 – in various patterns that, when etched, create the designs seen in the blade. This delivers a blade that has striking looks and modern performance. Performance should be comparable to CPM-154.
