Glenn Klecker and Brian Tighe are two of the best and most innovative knife makers currently alive. The CRKT NIRK Tighe majestically combines the ingenuity of Klecker with the designing prowess of Tighe into a truly original knife.

It all started when Klecker approached Tighe to make a knife with his new NIRK Lock mechanism. The two collaborated on a custom knife that won the Most Innovative Custom Design Award at the 2010 BLADE Show. CRKT couldn't let an opportunity pass and decided to make a factory version of this masterpiece.

The result is the CRKT NIRK Tighe. It features a 3.875-inch drop point blade made of AUS 8 stainless steel with a hollow grind. A built-in flipper mechanism, accompanied by a caged mini ball bearing system, makes it easy to engage quickly with either hand. Cutouts near the spine of the blade give users another option for opening the blade.

But the real inventiveness unveils itself in the NIRK Lock. It acts similar to a traditional lockback but it uses pressure from the frame itself to lock the blade into place. It even becomes stronger when you hold the knife while in use.

An ergonomic grip of the skeletonize 420J2 handle feels smooth and comfortable in the hand. It has a one-position pocket clip.

Buck Knives Fixed Omni Hunter 12 Pt Knife with Black Handle and Guthook Blade
"What can I say - It's a Buck! Excellent feel and of course very sharp. I have owned many Buck knives over the years (I'm 69) and I have never been disappointed."

Dom C. from Bay Area Northern Ca on Thursday

Buck Knives Spitfire, Green Aluminum, Plain
"I find this knife to be a solid edc performer. I have been carrying it for about two eeeks now. I am a contractor and I am tough on blades. I like the pocket clip and how secure it is. Most picket clips fail for me after a while. This seems to be very strong and durable. The blade is easy to sharpen.If it had an assisted opener it would be a 5."
