Spyderco Tighe Stick
Item #: SPC198TIP
From the Manufacturer:
Custom knifemaker Brian Tighe crafts folding knives that are an impressive blend of sophisticated design and meticulous craftsmanship. His first collaboration with Spyderco faithfully captures the magic of his handmade knives and translates it into a truly exceptional factory-made folder called the Tighe Stick.
The Tighe Stick's dramatic upswept blade is ground from high-performance CPM® S90V stainless steel—a vanadium-enriched powder metallurgy steel that offers exceptional resistance to wear and corrosion. 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. Spyderco's Trademark Round Hole™ in the blade stands proud to provide exceptional leverage for quick one-handed opening with either hand.
This knife's distinctive handle consists of two solid titanium scales that are precision CNC machined to create an intricate 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.
The upswept blade measures 4" and the closed length is 5-3/8". Weighs 6.0 oz. Suggested Retail $479.95.

In 1981, Spyderco ventured into the world of knife making by introducing their first folding knife, the C01 Worker. This knife was the first in the industry to feature a round hole in the blade design that allowed for fast, one-hand opening, now the company’s trademark, and the first to feature a pocket clip. The trademarked round hole is the most recognizable feature of a Spyderco knife and it facilitates the easy opening and closing of these knives with one hand while also offering convenient access and maximum control while opening as well as accommodating large, small or gloved hands.
Spyderco’s recognizable appearance is a result of designing ergonomically functional tools rather than applying lipstick and nylons to a pocketknife. Spyderco’s knives may look unusual, but they will never be called unusable or undependable. When you purchase a Spyderco knife, you are buying a high quality reliable cutting tool that was designed and manufactured for peak performance and ergonomic comfort.
