CRKT Mini My Tighe - 1093

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.

Like the larger My Tighe, CRKT offers two models in satin finish. Handle length is 3.73" and weight is reduced to 3.8 ounces, much more convenient for daily in-pocket carry.

The 3.0" blade also has asymmetrical spine facets, high-hollow grind and deep belly with recurve. Steel is 1.4116 stainless in a high satin finish. The blade features patented 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 Zytel scales have a deep random dimpled texture. Torx fasteners are used throughout.

CRKT's patented OutBurst assisted opening mechanism instantly springs the blade fully open after you have opened the blade approximately 30 degrees. All models have bronze and lubrous washers at the adjustable blade pivot for smooth, fast action.

Dual ramped thumb studs allow the My Tighe to be quickly opened with either hand.

The knife features 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 CRKT of another successful Mini.

Designer:  Brian Tighe


Brian Tighe Brian Tighe is a Canadian "Renaissance man": tool and die maker, photographer and extraordinary custom knifemaker and CRKT knife designer. He says, "I started making knives because I always carried one and had a passion for them. When I was first introduced to custom knives, I knew I could make them as well, got hooked and never looked back. I knew from my experience how to cut metal, what tools were needed and how to achieve the top fit and finish. I test my knives by carrying one every day, and I use it for everything I need to do around the house and work. I also get a lot of feedback from customers who use my knives to make their living." Pat Covert of American Handgunner has said, "Brian Tighe has risen from the rank and file of edged weapons artisans to the rarified air of the top 10 elite. His sense of design is extraordinary, his pride of workmanship exemplary. These are qualities that have propelled Tighe to the top." His custom workshop is in Ridgeville, Ontario.
