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.
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. Both Razor-Sharp and Combination Razor-Sharp and Veff™ Serrated edges are available. On our “K” models, the blade is coated with black non-reflective titanium nitride for maximum corrosion resistance.
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.
We offer each model as a conventional non-assisted opener, or with our 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.
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.
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.
