CRKT Nirk Tighe designed by the brilliant minds of Glen Klecker and Brian Tighe. Klecker designed a NIRK folder and Brian Tighe asked Glenn if he could possibly try the same design using a CNC machine. From this, the custom Nirk Tighe was born of titanium and a high end stainless steel blade. The design won most innovative at the 2010 BLADE Show in Atlanta. CRKT is now producing a more affordable version of this very popular design, using materials such as 420J2 stainless steel for the frame and AUS-8 stainless for the blade. The frame is stamped from a single piece of 420J2 stainless steel and then coated in blue titanium nitride to help prevent corrosion. The exterior of the frame is then satin polished, leaving the inside a deep blue and giving the knife a very unique finish. The design of the handle also offers a very comfortable grip with two large finger notches and an integral lockbar.
Just yesterday I wrote a review on one of the Honshu collection and said "That don't really have a personal favorite, like my children, each knives are unique and that I have an attachment to each and every one of them". I made that sentiment yesterday while my latest order was on route to my house; Two knives from the Honshu collection, Gerber pocket knife, a 43in Shinwa Sword, four or five other small assisted pocket knives, and the CRKT Kirk Tighe Pocket Knife. I have never opened a new knife and was just in a complete AWE of it. Towards some knives I've come to appreciate its simple values and saving that came with it. For others knives I've come to appreciate the craftsmanship that was sweated into it, and learned to appreciate and understand why so much time was consumed by those who desire to give complete attentions to the minor details that gives some knives it's character. However, today when I held the CRKT Kirk Tighe Knife in my hands, I literally GASPS the word WOW!! I held the knife for several minutes admiring the perfect contours, through and around the blade and handle of this Beautiful Artwork..., My adjectives to describe how this knife feels in my hand, can do it no justice. I am in complete AWE of how beautiful this knife is. This knife easily can hod it's own when laid next to my more expense Spyderco and Benchmade knives... I have no problem whatsoever saying this, "It's right there with the best of the best."
