Brian is a soft-spoken craftsman formally trained as a tool and die maker who uses his skill and artistry to craft beautiful knives. The fit and finish of a Tighe knife is the highest caliber. He admits that "attention to detail" is extremely important to him.
The materials in each knife have been personally selected by Brian and he insists that "I always pay a little extra and handpick the premium materials (fossil mammoth ivory, pearl & damascus etc.) because it looks better and each knife is special."
It is interesting to note that Brian is a self-taught knifemaker. His desire to make knives started after the discovery of an old stag antler near his home in rural Canada. With this antler he made a filet knife; he has continued to amaze us with his design and artistry.
