After CRKT introduced Brian Tighe’s popular production My Tighe™ in 2006, 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 re-proportioned by Brian, reflecting his passion for design detail.
This knife features CRKT's patented* OutBurst™ assisted opening mechanism, which instantly springs the blade fully open after you have opened the blade approximately 30 degrees. All have bronze and Teflon® bearings at the adjustable blade pivot for smooth, fast action.
The smaller frame-lock folder also has an open build with heavy-duty 420J2 stainless steel frames and a 6061 T6 aluminum back spacer. Frames are bead-blast on the bright models, and black EDP plated on the “K” models. The injection-molded black Zytel® scales have a deep random dimpled texture. Torx® fasteners are used throughout.
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 Teflon-plated stainless steel pocket/gear clip.
The Mini My Tighe 1092 features a plain cutting edge.
