After we 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 we 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.
Like the larger My Tighe, we are offering two finish schemes, one in satin finish and one in black. Handle length is 3.73" and weight is reduced to 3.8 ounces, much more convenient for daily in-pocket carry.
On our "K" model, 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 3.0" blade also has asymmetrical spine facets, high-hollow grind and deep belly with recurve. Steel is 1.4116 stainless. It features our 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.
Our 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.
crkt makes the best knives. I am a lover of the veff serrated edge. it stays sharper than any other type of serrated edges. plus it flat looks awesome. never thought I would ever replace my ignitor until I saw this MY TIGHE. got it for Christmas and absolutely love this knife. it fits my hand like it was made for me. its slightly larger than my ignitor (which has been moved to my gun bag). couldn't be happier love crkt. I have the IGNITOR, SPEW, MY TIGHE, Onion Survival Para-Saw bracelet, Onion Survival Para-Saw compass and firestarter and looking forward to getting the kangee thawk.

An excellent high quality knife. Well designed, it is one of the sharpest knives I have ever owned and works great. I love the OutBurst assisted open.
