CRKT Tighe Breaker

Apr 6, 2017

For 30 years, Brian Tighe (pronounced ‘tie’) has been honing his craft – that craft being the art of knife-making. And while many others have risen and fallen in the space, Mr. Tighe has stayed a strong constant thanks to his award winning and, frankly, brilliant blade designs. So it’s no wonder renowned EDC knife brand CRKT turned to him to create a tactical fixed blade. We can only imagine the smile on their faces when he sent them the blueprints for the Tighe Breaker.

Built from 8Cr13MoV steel, this black stonewashed skeletonized knife measures up at over 8.5″ in total length, but weighs just 3.5 ounces overall. And while this knife would certainly have been wonderful left at just a frame-handled blade, in a stroke of genius, Mr. Tighe decided instead to wrap the minimalist handle in paracord – which can be unwound and used in the case of an emergency survival situation and can be just as easily re-wrapped around the handle. This knife’s 4.266″ blade, when not in use, can be housed in the included injection molded glass-reinforced nylon sheath for safe keeping. And the whole package costs just $44.

Purchase: $$44
