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.
Select from either the NIRK Tighe or the new smaller sized NIRK Tighe 2 to get the ultimate in mechanical simplicity masterfully designed into a knife form that takes metal work to a whole new level.
