This Firecracker Mini model MN3DE features a black/satin double edge blade with a black finished handle. The Firecracker Mini is a super small double-action OTF knife that performs like a regular OTF knife. It measures just 5.25″ when open and has a super slim handle for comfortable carry or keychain carry. The Firecracker offers decent quality overall but is meant for very light use.
Please Note: This is a budget OTF knife and will misfire occasionally. Keep it well lubed with a light oil. These are sold as-is. If you are looking for a nicer knife, please view our complete catalog of OTF knives. CLICK HERE!
Awsome little guy
Amazing little knife. Very happy with my purchase.
Excellent customer service; 5 star product; shipped in a great case too
This is the 4th tacknife I’ve gotten in the last month. I received a purple firecracker a couple of weeks ago so that is what I will be comparing to.
Packaging: the knife shipped in a nylon carry bag with a knife faux fur inside. I give props for that as it felt and looked really nice.
Style/Design: unlike my purple firecracker this one has a pocket clip to allow it to be more safely carried. You could of course just put it in your pocket, but the product pages specifically warn that these more budget items in particular have greater chances of misfires, and I’d rather have it mounted at the top of my pocket with the blade in a relatively safe direction if that does happen.
The switch being on the side of the knife rather than the frame is what I’m finding to be my personal preference as it allows for a better grip that doesn’t have to be adjusted when pulled from the pocket.
The construction of this knife feels more quality than my purple firecracker. There is a noticeable weight difference that feels good in the hand. However, there is no texturing on the grip so it can be slippery.
Blade: the blade is very sharp. My biggest complaint is that when extending the blade there is a noticeable twang from the mechanism that I don’t have on my other knives. This may not be a problem, but it isn’t encouraging.
Overall, a pretty good knife, especially for the price.
As a side note, this is a great fidget toy if that is appropriate for your environment and you can ignore that small twanging sound when the blade is extended.
