Looking for all the world like a small dagger from Assassin’s Creed, CRKT’s new Tighe Dye isn’t exactly what it seems to be. But for a single-purpose defensive knife it still looks pretty neat . . .
It looks like a double-edged fixed blade, but CRKT reveals that it’s actually a flipper with a single-sided spear point. I couldn’t tell it from this picture, but the 3.9″ AUS 8 blade is unsharpened on the false reverse edge.
Spear points don’t make the best general-purpose knives, but this preserves the enhanced piercing ability of the spear point blade while avoiding being a prohibited ‘dirk’ or ‘dagger’ under many state laws.
It goes on sale soon for $89.99. If you get your mitts on one, shoot me an email and let me know what you think of it.
