This item is no longer in production …

Brian Tighe designed Tighe Stick’s dramatic upswept blade is ground from high-performance CPM® S90V stainless steel. Its saber grind offers both strength and low-friction edge geometry and is accentuated by a faceted tanto-style point and a scalloped swedge on the blade’s spine. This knife’s distinctive handle consists of two solid titanium scales that are precision CNC machined to create a sculptured 3-D pattern. The reverse scale forms the foundation of a high-strength Reeve Integral Lock (R.I.L.) mechanism that locks the blade securely when opened. Stainless steel standoffs join the handle halves to create an open-backed construction that reduces the knife’s weight and simplifies cleaning, while a reversible clip provides immediate access and a choice of left or right-side tip-down carry.

Spyderco was founded in 1976 by Sal and Gail Glesser. In 1981, the Glessers put down roots in Golden, Colorado and introduced the first Spyderco folding knife. That knife pioneered the concept of a round hole in the blade for one-handed opening, a clip on the handle for carry at the top of the pocket, and the option of a serrated edge for aggressive cutting performance. Since then, Spyderco has steadily grown to become one of the leaders in the cutlery industry. In addition to a worldwide distribution network and manufacturing resources in the U.S., Japan, Taiwan, Italy, and China. Those Who Know, Carry Spyderco.
