The Onyx - LTD® laminate processes are manufactured using the same boar skins as our Sniper processes, and each of the thinner layers is then collected and aged using a secret Tigers process. During this process, we are able to soften the layers to medium hardness, while making the leather firmer. This makes the tip easy to care for and allows for better cutting during repairs. The third layer is red to warn you when it is time to replace the tip.
All genuine Tiger Onyx-LTD tail tips carry the name, year of manufacture, the Tiger logo and the words "Made in USA". If it does not appear on the back of the hose, it is not a genuine Tiger process.
