The Mini 1 inch knives are perfect to use as a climax for any knife routine. You get a set of 6 knives (Red, Yellow, Purple, Blue, Green, and Orange). These fully functional knives are perfect in every detail. They are exactly like the standard knives and they are real knives. You can start your routine by showing the Mini Knife and stretching it into a standard 3" knife. This makes a nice opener.....You can also close your routine by changing a standard knife to a Mini.
