Brian Tighe designed the Tighe Rade Folding Knife - pronounced Tirade - for CRKT to be as elegant looking as it is useful and versatile. The 3.4" 8Cr13MoV prop point stainless steel blade features a hollow double grind: the tip is ground and reinforced for stronger cutting applications, while closer to the handle it is perfect for finer cutting tasks and wire stripping. The blade opens using the IKBS system that utilizes a ball bearing pivot system to smoothly deploy blade. When the blade protrusion or thumbstuds are pressed, the bearings allow the blade to open quickly and smoothly without having to flick the wrist as with other knives. When the blade is open, a pin moves into place to lock it. To release the lock, simply press the button the right side of the handle.

The handle has elegant lines and custom pivot covers to give it a refined and sleek look. Fore and middle finger grooves, an ergonomic overall shape, and a rear pommel protrusion locks the hand comfortably in place for safe and secure use. A single position right-hand carry tip-up clip allows for discreet carrying, and its 4.5" closed length and 4.5oz weight allows for easy carrying in most pockets without adding excessive bulk.
