CRKT Tighe Dye Brian Tighe Design

The 2013 Tighe Dye Knife by Columbia River Knife & Tool (CRKT) is another great design from custom knifemaker and designer Brian Tighe. The Tighe Dye knife is designed after the classic "old school" stiletto knife design, it is feather light and has a symmetrical blade shape and coffin style handle that fits the hand nicely and is well balanced for easy maneuverability. The blade on this cutting tool is finely ground and polished for a razor sharp cutting edge. The blade deploys in the blink of the eye via the integral Carson Flipper.
The Tighe Dye's distinctive dagger style blade has one razor sharp edge and an unsharpened false edge on the spine for both safety and style. The custom looking blade pivot pin screw adds a touch of class to this beauty. You will appreciate the handle design and it's visually appealing near-custom detail. The coffin shaped aluminum handle scales have a been bead blasted and then gray anodized for added wear resistance and great looks. Secure blade lockup is accomplished via a positive interference bar engaged by the blade tang. To close the knife, simply push the button release to disengage and close the blade.
