EDC for CCW: Wilson Combat Damascus Deluxe StarFighter

Wilson Combat makes 1911’s. Damn fine guns that cost a bomb, last a lifetime and shoot straighter than Minnesota Fats pocketing an eight ball. Nick Leghorn carries one. Andrew “I’m Right You’re Wrong Now STFU” Wilkow carries one. Ten years ago, the gunmaker decided to extend the brand by offering knives. As you’d expect for a company as tightly focused as Wilson Combat, the move has been wildly successful. To wit: just six days after offering ten examples of knife maker Brian Tighe‘s Damascus Deluxe StarFighter [custom alliance #17] the $1,495 blade’s sold out. And it’s easy to see why . . .

Stainless “Damasteel Deluxe StarFighter” by Brian Tighe

One of the most amazing knives we have ever seen! A Complete Damasteel Folder from Brian Tighe in Heimskringla pattern Swedish Stainless Damasteel.

The 100% solid Damasteel Deluxe StarFighter tactical folder merges Wilson Combat’s signature Starburst grip design and the superb quality and performance of knifemaker Brian Tighe’s artistic cutlery vision. The sculpted 100% Stainless Damasteel handle houses Tighe’s rock-solid button lock and proprietary Sealed Thrust Bearing System (STBS™). The STBS™ is the secret ingredient that gives the blade an amazing glassy-smooth flipper operation that must be felt to be believed!

    Any thing with “Starfighter” in the name should be made in Pakistan out of recycled car bumpers and sold at geek conventions to people that learned to speak Klingon instead of getting laid.
