Alliance Designs Mini Slim Pickins - The Heavy Metal Edition


The Mini Slim Pickins is the second in-house design to come from Alliance Designs. When we first set out to create the original Slim Pickins in 2018, our goal was to build a beautiful, well-made and functional folding knife that was also satisfying to fidget with. 

We believe that this latest reiteration still checks all those boxes, with an added dash of innovation. This bolstered version of the Mini is paired with 2 handsomely contoured slabs of blasted Zirconium and a brand new auxiliary detent which holds the blade in the closed position even while the button-lock is depressed. This not only improves the action, but also reduces the chance of accidental deployment. Weighing in at an impressive 155 grams, this knife was not made to be delicate. This variant also features a Damasteel blade with a deep hollow grind.
