This is Brian's "Tighe Fighter", button-lock flipper from TKI 2016.  It features a San Mai blade with a Beta "C" Titanium core and Timascus scales.  Beta Titanium is the hardest titanium, although not as hard as steel.  It is commonly used in dive knives.  The handle scales are Timascus.  Beautifully carved pivot pin, double sided thumbstuds, carbon fiber back-spacer, and "Y" shaped pocket clip set for tip-up carry, all add to the uniqueness of this work of art.  The back-spacer is cleverly used for a triangular shaped lanyard hole opening.  The flipper runs on STBS bearings, and is silky smooth.  Excellent detent, rock solid lock-up, and centered blade seating.  Brian signed the pocket clip.  It will come in a padded, zippered pouch.  This one has it all.  The depth of the colors is outstanding.
