It all began in 2010 when Glenn Klecker approached Brian Tighe to raise the possibility of collaborating on a knife design incorporating his new NIRK™ Lock mechanism because its unique construction allows for a design freedom that traditional liner locks did not afford. The resulting collaboration resulted the NIRK-Tighe™ custom knife which immediately won the Most Innovative Custom Design Award at the 2010 Blade Show. All that was left for CRKT® to do was to convert the custom knife into a faithful production model. Their version of the NIRK Tighe features 420J2 stainless steel frames which are stamped, then machined and coated with blue titanium nitride. Finally, the frame exterior is satin polished, giving the blue interior coating, a stunning effect.
