    Saw it a few weeks ago. Branded "Brian Tighe and Friends" and obviously made by a larger production maker. So who are his friends?

    BTW, it looks like it would make a good user. It's very similar to the size and weight and shape of a Scarab S/E, but lacks the useless glass breaker and is $200 cheaper than Scarabs were the last time dealers had them in stock. I'm not crazy about the look of handle texturing, though.

    Still wondering who makes them. Pretty much has to be one of: Microtech, Heretic, Hogue, or Benchmade.

    It says its a custom, not BTAF... I agree its a great as far as proportions and for carry, except its cost and too fancy. Made in Canada where Tighe is located... would love more info on it.

    Dealer website says country of origin is USA, and given the laws, I don't think this is a mistake.

    I kinda like the texturing and usually that shit turns me off to a knife.

    I believe I've seen custom and production. These look interesting. Never handled one but I hear nothing but good about Tighes

    I saw these a little while back and was wondering the same. Who is the "and friends"? The side openers look sweet as well.

    So here is my thoughts on the knife. Its a great knife. It fires very reliable and solid. the texture had me a little worried before it came in but now that i have it in my hand it is very minimal. the ridges are so slight you can hardly feel them but just enough to add for a good grip. Blade play is about the same as my microtechs. I do think the microtechs fire just a little more solid feeling but not much. I wouldn't take away from the tighe for it. I love The pocket clip. For the price i don't think you can go wrong. It is a very nice OTF.

    Gotta say, I really like the look and size. If there arent any function problems, Im grabbing one.
    really like the clip and button. Plus I think w/ pocket time that ano may wear and give it a cool "battle worn" look.

    This video will sum up functionality pretty well. Very little bladeplay. About the same as a microtech. The only thing is on the realease I feel a slight spring vibration. Everything else I love about this knife.
