Description: The Integral Tighe Breaker 3.5 is Brian Tighe's new pocket friendly version of his standard Tighe Breaker. The handle is machined from a solid piece of titanium, showing Brian's tremendous skill as a machinist.
Brian Tighe produces unique, functional and visually appealing knives of the highest quality. His blades are the product of 25 years of experience in metallurgy artistry and tactical expertise. His new sculpted Tighe Breaker model has some incredible details that demand your attention.
This Tighe Breaker 3.5 features a satin finished 3-1/2 inch blade made from RWL-34 powdered metallurgical stainless steel. RWL-34 is a premium powder metallurgy cutlery steel manufactured by ERASTEEL in Söderfors, Sweden. Because it is made from rapidly solidified powders, the microstructure of the steel is much more uniform. This gives the steel much higher strength and resistance to cracks and chips. The spine of the blade features a cracked ice finish.
The blade is perfectly centered and the action is incredibly smooth. It can be deployed easily using the ambidextrous flipper or the dual thumbstuds. A button lock makes closing the blade with one hand a breeze!
The ergonomic titanium handle has been heavily fluted providing a beautiful, yet incredibly comfortable grip. This integral handle is machined from one solid piece of titanium, showing off Brian's machining skills at their best. The handle was beadblasted with the top flats satin finished. A zirconium pivot collar surrounds the custom pivot, providing an elegant contrast. Zirconium is a transitional metal that is primarily mined in South Africa and Australia. It is highly resistant to corrosion and scuffing. The knife is finished with a matching fluted zirconium deep carry pocket clip that is mounted for right-handed, tip-up carry.
This is an exceptional knife from Brian Tighe that you won't want to miss!
