Small and Mighty
The Speedgoat has become one of our most popular knives because of its weight, thinness, and toughness. Meet its little brother, the Mini-Speedgoat. The Mini-Speedgoat is tough enough to tackle the same tasks as the Speedgoat, but the smaller, thinner, and lighter design makes it even more ideal for non-hunting purposes…
At 6.5 inches and 1 ounce, the Mini-Speedgoat is the first practical fixed-blade EDC knife. It’s virtually unnoticeable when clipped inside a pant pocket, and the 3-inch blade makes the Mini-Speedgoat legal for open carry in most U.S. cities.
Bird and Trout
While the Speedgoat and Blackfoot quickly became the go-to blades for many anglers and small game hunters, we felt the knives were slightly overbuilt for these tasks. The Mini-Speedgoat is the perfect size. When clipped to chest waders or fly vests, it lies flat and won’t interfere with casting motions. The compact blade design also acts like a surgical scalpel in the right hands.
Bear spray and firearms can be incredibly effective for self-defense on the trail, but they’re often too cumbersome to carry — especially on intense hikes and trail runs. The Mini-Speedgoat clips comfortably in running shorts’ pockets or on leggings, bra straps, and heart rate monitors. This gives a reliable measure of defense without hindering movement or performance.
Like its bigger brother, the Mini-Speedgoat takes its name from the Pronghorn Antelope native to Montana and the American West. These aptly named “speedgoats” are the fastest land mammals in the Western Hemisphere. They can move through the toughest terrain with extreme speed and precision, making them the perfect symbol for our lightest hunting blade.
DETAILED BREAKDOWN OF FEATURES
The Mini-Speedgoat is made from cryogenically-treated 521000 high carbon ball-bearing steel, achieving the perfect balance of toughness, edge-retention, and easy resharpening. The blade is also parkerized to a matte black finish which minimizes rust and glare.
Ultralight, Ultra-Thin Design
With the Mini-Speedgoat, we took the ultralight design of the Speedgoat a step further. While it’s only 17% shorter, it’s over 40% lighter than its big brother. The skeletonized, paracord-wrapped handle sheds ounces and reduces hand fatigue. The Mini-Speedgoat is also incredibly thin — 0.095″ at its thickest point and 0.01″ at the edge, making it incredibly easy to sharpen, maintain, and carry.
550 Paracord Handle
Wrapping the handle in 6.5 feet of 550 paracord was just as much for minimizing weight as maximizing versatility. It can fix a broken boot lace, tie down a tent, hang meat in a tree, or help in any number of unexpected, emergency situations. And when the paracord is removed from the handle, the Mini-Speedgoat still fits securely in its sheath.

This blade is so sharp and clean. Just celebrated my daughters second birthday and balloon popping sure was fun.
On a serious note, the holster fit perfectly on a belt or pocket making the knife perfectly accessible.
Amazing US company!
I will never but another brand of knife again
I'm of small built so this is the perfect knife for me. Everything else is so big and bulky. One of the best tools I've ever had - idk how I lived without one. Use for EDC but it's extra useful for backpacking trips and car camping. Still very sharp. No complaints.
I purchased for EDC and it is great! I use it daily for many things. It is incredibly sharp and stays sharp. And when it needs a touch up, it is easy to sharpen. Plus, when it really needs it, I can send it in to let the pros sharpen it. I do find the mini is a little short, which means I see another knife, or two, in my future. Proud to own a USA made knife from an awesome company!
Very light and perfect for EDC!
