CRKT NIRK Tighe - 3.875in Blade
The NIRK Tighe features 420J2 stainless steel frames which are stamped, then machined and coated with blue titanium nitride. The frame exterior is satin polished, leaving the blue interior coating, a stunning effect. Like the original NIRK, the knife is a lockback folder in which the spring, release bar and lock detent are all integral with the frame structure. Two pronounced finger notches provide a secure grip. Their blade is a graceful but strong drop point design with subtle recurve, and weight-saving reliefs cut into the spine for balance. The blade can be opened with one hand, by using a thumb on the reliefs, or by pressing the blade flipper. The blade is precision cut from premium AUS 8 stainless steel. At the blade pivot, a special caged mini ball bearing system gives fast and smooth opening action. The tighter the grip on the handle, the tighter the lockup, making this an exceptionally safe design. A custom removable stainless steel clothing/gear clip is provided. 3.875" Blade.
