First and foremost, a knife should serve a function, but it sure doesn't hurt if it's also a knife to look at. The CRKT Tighe Rod Folder Knife does both with a classic Brian Tighe look and solid construction that's paired with top of the line components. The stainless steel blade is finished with a satin finish that folds into the steel handle and is secured by a CRKT's Klecker locking mechanism. The Tighe Rod's blade opens smoothly thanks to caged mini ball bearings, while its broad, sweeping shape, deep belly is highly functional in any number of applications. The blade can be deployed ambidextrously through either the blade flipper or dual thumb studs.
