CRKT NIRK Tighe Knife - Everyday Carry Folding Knife w/ 3.8in. Blade Product Info

The CRKT NIRK Tighe Knife incorporates surprising ideas from two top knife designers. Glenn Klecker and Brian Tighe both pitched in to create the CRKT NIRK Tighe Folder Knife, incorporating Glenn's new NIRK Lock mechanism, which allows for a design freedom that traditional liner locks did not afford. The resulting collaboration produced the CRKT NIRK-Tighe Folding Knife, a functional everyday carry knife built by CRKT with 420J2 stainless steel frames which are stamped, then machined and coated with blue titanium nitride. The frame exterior is satin polished, leaving the blue interior coating, a stunning effect.

Like the original NIRK, the CRKT NIRK Tighe Folding Flipper Knife is a lockback folder in which the spring, release bar and lock detent are all integral with the frame structure. Two pronounced finger notches provide a secure grip. Their blade is a graceful but strong drop point design with subtle recurve, and weight-saving reliefs cut into the spine for balance. The blade can be opened with one hand, by using a thumb on the reliefs, or by pressing the blade flipper. The blade is precision cut from premium AUS 8 stainless steel. At the blade pivot, a special caged mini ball bearing system gives fast and smooth opening action. The tighter the grip on the handle, the tighter the lockup, making this an exceptionally safe design. The Columbia River NIRK Tighe Everyday Carry Knife includes a custom removable stainless steel clothing/gear clip.

Glenn's original quest was to create a folder of "irreducible complexity." Brian has added a few additional parts, true, but he's also added a vast amount of design interest, making the CRKT NIRK-Tighe Knife a very functional folder indeed.
