After CRKT introduced the popular production My Tighe in 2006 customers asked: "When can I get a slightly smaller personal carry version?" In response CRKT 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 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.
The dual ramped thumb studs allow the Mini My Tighe to be quickly opened with either hand, just like the regular My Tighe. The smaller models also feature a custom removable black Teflon-plated stainless steel pocket/gear clip.
The 1093K Mini My Tighe features a combined Razor-Sharp & Veff serrated cutting edge with a black finished blade and handle.
