Among the most striking pocket knives and EDC tools we’ve seen, Columbia River Knife and Tool (CRKT) is probably the brand we hold in high regard. Some of the best we’ve seen include the Raikiri, Provoke, and the Snap Lock. Once again, the company certainly does not disappoint as we take closer at the Tighe Breaker. What we can immediately pick out is the skeletonized frame of the handle, which reminds us of the Snap Lock a bit. However, this knife looks like a serious tool that will be handy for survival in a pinch.
The handle gets an enhancement from the paracord that wraps around its ergonomic structure. Moreover, this gives the Tighe Breaker a tactical vibe, which fits its function as a combat and utility blade. According to the product page, famous designer Brian Tighe took all of the great elements of his original folder and turned it into a fixed blade version.
Its skeleton handle not only adds style, but it also keeps the Tighe Breaker lightweight. CRKT bundles a glass-filled Nylon sheath to keep the blade safely tucked away during transport. The 4.27-inch 8Cr13MoV steel blade features a black stonewash finish that gives it a stealthy look. Along with the handle the knife measures 8.69 inches and weighs around 3.5 ounces.
The brand is all about superior craftsmanship and quality. Hence, you’re looking at a lifetime warranty as an assurance that it will not fail the owner in any scenario. The CRKT Tighe Breaker would make a splendid addition to your growing knife collection. Given the chance, we’d grab one in a heartbeat.Get it here
