Brian Tighe Coon and Tighe Dye Folders

Tighe-Blog

CRKT has been pumping out the Brian Tighe designs hard and fast recently, and for good reason. Each and every model he comes up with is refreshingly different and once you get one in the hand, is hard to put down. The two newest to arrives through the KnifeCenter doors are the Tighe Coon and Tighe Dye folders. They both have flipper mechanisms, gray aluminum handles, button locks, and reasonably deep carry pocket clips. However, apart from these material similarities, they really are quite different designs. The Dye model is a single edged version of an Italian Stiletto, but the handle provides a much more stout feeling for more demanding cutting tasks. The Tighe Coon knife is ultra smooth opening with a slightly recurved drop point blade for better slicing performance. Both knives feature mirror polished AUS-8 blades and are built like tanks.

Mantis MT7.2 S30V Folding Pry Tools

Mantis is in the business of manufacturing odd designs and the MT7.2 Folding Pry Tool is definitely right up their alley. The 3-1/4″ S30V blades are designed with a Besh Wedge style tip for ultimate strength in non-cutting tasks. The milled G10 handle is adequately textured and the shape contours to the curvature of the hand excellently. The glass breaker on the end is well executed as is the strong liner lock mechanism. It’s thick enough to give you great piece of mind while using it while still being quite easy to manipulate. Anyone from a firefighter to a construction worker would be happy using this blade, check it out at www.knifecenter.com.
