The sculpted Titanium 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! The Damasteel - Swedish powdered metal Damascus steel blade is 3D-striated for a unique, eye-catching contrast and amazing, drag-free cutting performance.

Damasteel is a Swedish powdered metal Damascus steel that is renowned for toughness, material quality and unmistakable beauty. Damasteel is a blend of two stainless knife steels and the end result is as hi-performing as it is attractive.

Because of the beauty of the deeply etched pattern we have opted not to engrave the blades with our custom alliance logo. To identify these unique Wilson Custom Alliance knives in the future we are supplying a personalized dog tag with the serial number and other pertinent information.

The Damasteel StarFighter is limited to ten serial-numbered pieces, limit one knife per customer.
