CRKT  My Tighe Black Blade and Frame, Combined Razor-Sharp & Veff Serrated Cutting Edge, OutBurst Assisted CRKT Ignitor T Spring Assisted Knife, Plain Edge, CR6860 CRKT Ignitor Sport Spring Assisted Knife, Veff Edge, CR6855
Canadian knifemaker Brian Tighe is a true Renaissance Man, with an array of professional skills including tool and die making, metallurgy, engraving and photography. In his St. Catharines, Ontario, workshop, he produces a wide array of custom folders, all with those signature touches that immediately make them stand out as Brian Tighe knives.

We have carefully translated Brian’s popular My Tighe custom frame-lock folder into an affordable production line, with four models in bead-blast finish and two in black. At first glance, the knife seems like a design exercise until you grasp it and understand that the concave cut scales are craftily shaped to enhance grip, aggressive with contours in just the right places.

Brian’s blade design is unique too, with its asymmetrical spine facets, high-hollow grind and deep belly with recurve. We use 1.4116 stainless steel in a high satin finish and offer both Razor-Sharp and our exclusive Combination Razor-Sharp and Veff™ Serrated edges. Designed by knifemaker Tom Veff, these unique scalloped and angled serrations cut through rope and cord smoothly without snagging. On our “K” models, the blade is coated with black non-reflective titanium nitride for maximum corrosion resistance.

The frame-lock folder has an open build with heavy-duty 420J2 stainless steel frames and a 6061 T6 aluminum back spacer. Frames are bead-blast on the bright models, and black EDP plated on the “K” models. The injection-molded black Zytel® scales have a carbon fibre texture. Torx® fasteners are used throughout.

Each model is available in conventional non-assisted opening models, or with our patented* OutBurst™ assisted opening mechanism, which instantly springs the blade fully open after you have opened the blade approximately 30 degrees. All have bronze and Teflon® bearings at the adjustable blade pivot for fast action.
CRKT's new Ignitor™ T Outburst assisted knife has a tactical color scheme.  With a non-reflective dark gray titanium nitride coating on the blade, it has corrosion protection and a tactical look.  The "T" also features black G10 Scales.  Thus knife features a modified drop point design plain edge blade with a high hollow grind.  The blade is made of 8Cr14MoV stainless steel.  The frame is constructed with CRKT's InterFrame technology.  The stainless steel liners are layered over with G10 textured scales with CNC machined grooves to aid grip.  One of the liners acts as the frame lock mechanism. It also has a pocket clip (tip up).  
As CRKT states, "The true breakthrough is our ability to combine our patented(2) OutBurst™ assisted opening with the patent-pending(3) Fire Safe™ mechanism. When closed, the blade is safely locked by the Fire Safe pin. It cannot be opened until the safety button on the end of the thumb stud is firmly depressed and the thumb stud is nudged outward. Then the blade springs open instantly for use. Yes, this is a design for right-hand opening, but it is the best integration of folder safety and fast access that we have ever seen in a sport and work folder. Caution: When closing the knife, always press firmly to fully close the blade, and be sure the Fire Safe pin locks into place securely with an audible 'click'".
This knife is great.  Carries well, has nice aesthetics and stands up to some serious use.

CRKT Van Hoy On Fire Assisted Knife, Razor Edge CRKT Fire Spark Tactical Assisted Open Knife, CR1050K CRKT Lerch Enticer 1060 Assist Knife, Razor Sharp Edge
Ed Van Hoy has designed a number of hot sellers for Columbia River Knife & Tool (CRKT). This time it is a frame-lock folder that utilizes Columbia River's patented OutBurst™ assisted opening mechanism. The action is super slick, thanks to bronze and Teflon® bearings at the adjustable blade pivot. Also neatly incorporated at the pivot is the patented Lake And Walker Knife Safety (LAWKS®), which effectively converts your folder into a fixed blade when the safety is activated. That makes On Fire not only a fast folder, but also a very safe one. The 2-3/8" drop point blade is premium AUS-8 stainless at 56-58 Rc. with a bead-blast finish, a swedged top grind and four holes to reduce the weight.The handle is an unusual combination of a 420J2 stainless steel frame-lock with a 6061 T6 black anodized aluminum side plate, both liberally slotted and drilled to further reduce the weight. The removable bead-blast stainless steel pocket clip provides all the carry options imaginable; in pocket, on belt, or in bags and briefcases The CRKT Fire Spark spring assisted knife features a rigid InterFrame with stainless steel liners.  Add on the 6061 CNC machined aluminum scales that are topped with black textured G10 inlays and you have a handle that is comfortable as well as one that you can grip.  The razor sharp edge on the high hollow grind and swedged top edge blade allow for maximum penetration.  This model, the 1050K sports a nonreflective black oxide finish on the blade, frame, pocket clip and hardware.    The blade snaps open with the Outburst system and the knife also has the patented 2 LAWKS safety which makes the folder into a virtual fixed blade when activated.  This fully decked out tactical knife is also an incredible value.  Get tactical--get the Fire Spark. The CRKT Enticer, a MJ Lerch design, is an ultra lightweight spring assist knife that performs.  At just 2 ounces, the knife has a 3.24 inch blade that comes out quick with the patented Fire Safe®, which has been incorporated into a thumb-disk for the first time. The glass filled nylon handle scales use a liner lock to keep the drop point blade open when you want it to stay that way.  With so much knife weighing in at so little...you may just be enticed to put one in every gear bag

CRKT Badger, A/O, Razor-Sharp Cutting Edge CRKT Lift Off Spring Assist Knife, Razor Sharp Edge CRKT Lift Off 2 Spring Assist Knife, Razor Sharp Edge
Yes, you don’t have to be a rock star to afford this new Barry Gallagher folder. As you know, Barry is one of the most acclaimed members of the Knifemakers’ Guild, well known for his award-winning high-end custom art knives. So we had a special challenge in producing Barry‘s new Badger™ design at a quality level that would satisfy him, while keeping the price low enough to satisfy you.

We selected high-carbon 5Cr15MoV stainless steel for the 2.85” blade, and applied a non-reflective black oxide coating for maximum corrosion resistance. It’s an unusual blade shape that we call a “notched drop point” with a high hollow grind and a strong center spine. The result is a blade with excellent slicing ability and good penetrating ability with minimum weight.

The Badger features our patented* OutBurst™ assisted opening mechanism, which instantly springs the blade fully open after you have opened the blade approximately 30 degrees. It has Teflon® bearings at the adjustable blade pivot for smooth action.

The grooved thumb disk allows fast either-hand opening, and the locking liner has friction grooves for easy one-hand closing.

CRKT owners expect the strength and rigidity of our InterFrame locking liner build with two 2Cr13 stainless steel liners, also black oxide finished, and a black aluminum back spacer. For the Badger scales, we have created a special layered green and black textured G10, which is CNC machined top and bottom to aid grip. The effect is indistinguishable from the best custom builds.

As a final touch, we added a removable custom stainless steel clip, also black oxide coated to match. All fasteners are quality Torx®, and are also finished in black.

The result is a well-balanced personal knife that feels just right as an every day carry. It fits the hand perfectly, opens with crisp authority, and looks great, too. You can tell your friends it’s a Barry Gallagher design, but you don’t have to mention the very affordable price.
