The Tighe Rade by CRKT is a production version of Brian's custom model and is an excellent quality production at that. The 3.38" blade is made from 8Cr13MoV stainless steel with a satin finish and dual hollow ground drop point shape. It's a typical Brian Tighe style design which pairs an intricate, ergonomic handle with a wicked cool, functional blade. The handle is 4.53", made from milled 6061T6 Aluminum with a supremely ergonomic shape. It's a button lock design that gives you nearly all the enjoyment of one of Brian's customs without the handmade price tag. Superb design, superb execution, and an even better value!
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. In hand or in action, this is one to show off.
