Does Size matter? Let’s be honest with ourselves, it depends on what we are talking about. When it comes to automatic knives the answer is yes… size does matter. Legally and functionally size comes into play. There are plenty of states that do not allow you to legally own or carry a four-inch blade.

Check your state’s OTF Knives laws. Size also comes into play if you are the kind of person who wants to carry something smaller for EDC. This is where you direct your attention to MINI OTF knives otherwise known as Firecrackers. Boom! Let’s cut into it.

One of the handiest ways to carry a mini OTF is on your keychain. The TacKnives Firecracker Double Action Mini Italian Stiletto OTF STSB1 has a very convenient chain attached to it making it handy when you’re on the go.

We at the TacKnives headquarters all have one of these attached to our keychains. They are not only functional, but they look cool. Yes, we take the cool factor into consideration. To be honest, aside from our outdoor hobbies, the cool factor is what drew us into knives in the first place.

If you are doing some serious and repetitive cuts but have limitations on the size of the knife you’re allowed to use or carry, let us introduce you to the TK PRO Mini Firecracker Double Action OTF Stinger Tanto.

Why Buy a Mini OTF Knife?

Made with D2 blade steel, this knife can take a beating. It’s a heaving hitting knife that’s lightweight and compact. It’s a lot in a little package. If you think that sounds too good to be true, don’t take our word for it, take his:

“Unbelievable quality at this price point! Or any price point for that matter! I purchased this model specifically because it has a unique design that is unlike any other OTF on the market. The size is absolutely perfect for EDC and the action is oh sooo satisfying. I took mine apart immediately to clean it out and smooth out the ramp sections to achieve extra smoothness (I do this to all of my OTFs). While inside I inspected the machine work and was surprised at the quality and precision I found inside. I’ve taken a lot of OTFs apart to rework them and this stands out as much more quality than is reflected in the price I paid. Most of the time I have to spend some time with diamond files to achieve a perfect action but this one required ZERO work out of the box. The product description says that more effort is put into these TK Pro knives, and I believe it. I’d put the internals up against a name brand any day of the week. I like it so much I’m going to be purchasing a few more for friends.”   -L. W.

Now we know that there are people out there who don’t use knives consistently and repetitively. Making a large investment in a knife might not be where your priorities are. Guess what? That’s fine. There is nothing wrong with budget EDC knives. Not to toot our own horn but, toot – toot. That’s our specialty.
