After CRKT introduced Brian Tighe's popular production My Tighe several years ago, the questions began: "When can I get a slightly smaller personal carry version?" So CRKT went to Brian with the request, and he designed the Mini My Tighe. It is not simply a scaled-down version of the bigger frame-lock model, but was carefully reproportioned by Brian, reflecting his passion for design detail.
Handle length is 3.73" and weight is reduced to 3.8 ounces, much more convenient for daily in-pocket carry.
The blade is coated with black non-reflective titanium nitride for maximum corrosion resistance, while the frames are black EDP plated. The result is a non-reflective tactical look.
The 3" blade also has asymmetrical spine facets, high-hollow grind and deep belly with recurve. Steel is 1.4116 stainless. It features the exclusive and patented Combination Razor-Sharp Veff Serrated edges.
The smaller frame-lock folder also has an open build with heavy-duty 420J2 stainless steel frames and a 6061 T6 aluminum back spacer. The injection-molded black glass filled nylon scales have a deep random dimpled texture. Torx fasteners are used throughout.
The patented OutBurst assisted opening mechanism instantly springs the blade fully open after you have opened the blade approximately 30°. All models have bronze and lubrous washers at the adjustable blade pivot for smooth, fast action.
Like its bigger brother, dual ramped thumb studs allow the Mini My Tighe to be quickly opened with either hand.
The smaller models also feature a custom removable black stainless steel pocket/gear clip.
So if you love the My Tighe, the Mini My Tighe gives you all the style, all the features, and all the performance in a compact package. Why, it reminds us of another successful Mini.
