CRKT 5240 NIRK TIGHE 2 DESIGNED BY CANADIAN BRIAN TIGHE PLAIN EDG FOLDING KNIFE
NIRK™ TIGHE 2
Designed by Brian Tighe in Ridgefield, Ontario
Once your eyes lock on to the artistry in the skeletonized handle, you begin to see the true purity of the Nirk™ Tighe form.
Brian Tighe and Glenn Klecker reinterpreted the Klecker NIRK™ folder with stainless steel being stamped and machined into a very dynamic, functional design. The steel frame is not only visually exciting, but offers a formidable cutting tool handle as well. Glenn's patent pending integral Lock Back mechanics are such that, the tighter you grip the handle—the stronger the blade lock-up. Brian's drop point blade design flows nicely from the handle shape, and its subtle recurve along the cutting edge is a nice touch as well. To keep the blade action smooth, a specially caged mini ball bearing system affords fast and smooth operation. A custom removable stainless steel clothing/gear clip is provided.
