CRKT 5265 Tighe Rod


You can’t judge a great knife on looks alone. Just in case, this one goes way beyond looks. Once again custom knife designer Brian Tighe puts the edge back in knife design. Whether you’re a casual knife user, or someone who seeks out the truly “unique”, the Tighe Rod will not disappoint. Thicker, stainless steel handle scales are attractively skeletonized to reduce weight without sacrificing strength. Titanium Nitride coated blue and then surface finished to create a visually striking color effect. Solid, blade lockup comes from the Klecker Lock that is uniquely formed within the steel scales creating an innovative, modern lockback design.

The Tighe Rod’s blade rotates buttery smooth with caged mini ball bearings in the pivot, and its shape is user-minded with a broad sweeping, deep belly, and hollow ground cutting edge. You can open the blade with use of either its blade flipper, or ambidextrous thumb-studs. For the user that enjoys a folding pocket knife that looks both unique, and offers great cutting tool pocket utility—the Tighe Rod delivers at first sight.
