Badass Knife of the Week: My Tighe by CRKT

Badass Knife of the Week

The knife… a tool so useful and powerful that it’s been in our hands for more than two million years, clearing brush, hunting animals, slicing up dinner, and doing tons more.

There are thousands of knife designs out there, most of them bringing something special or unique to the table that you might not know of.

Thus, we bring you the “Badass Knife of the Week.”

Every week, we’ll highlight one knife that’s earned the right to be called badass. Basically, we’ll offer you a little eye candy to help break up the monotony of the week.

My TigheThe first Badass Knife of the Week is the My Tighe from CRKT. The My Tighe, based on the award-winning design of custom knifemaker Brian Tighe (pronounced “Tie”), is one unique frame-lock folder.

With a high-hollow grind and deep belly with recurve, the 3.625-inch stainless steel blade boasts a high satin finish that leaves passers-by drooling with envy.

One of the best assets on a knife overflowing with features is CRKT’s patented OutBurst assisted opening mechanism. Fewer things are more important than being able to deploy your knife and the blade on the My Tighe engages with the push of its dual ramped thumb studs.

With curves in all the right places, the handle feels like silk in your hands.

There you have it; the first entry into the Badass Knife of the Week. We look forward to sharing some amazing knives with you.
