CRKT KISS Knives - Original K.I.S.S. / KISS in the Dark Product Info

The CRKT Original K.I.S.S. Folding Blade Knife features a Tanto-inspired blade, and is the revolutionary high-tech statement by Knifemakers' Guild member Ed Halligan. The name stands for "Keep It Superimage Simple." The CRKT KISS is one honey of a knife, precision fine blanked for superior fit and smooth operation. Like all folding knives in the CRKT K.I.S.S. family, Ed Halligan's unique two-piece construction features an integral frame lock, and a breakthrough design which seals the cutting edge against the handle. A thumb stud is used to one-hand open the blade, and as the blade is fully rotated open, the frame lock snaps crisply in behind the blade to give a sound lockup. The blade can be closed with one hand, simply by releasing the frame lock. The Columbia River Knife & Tool Original K.I.S.S. Knife features a Tanto-inspired blade shape with a Chisel-Point grind on the front and flat on the backside-so that when the blade is closed onto its handle/frame, the precision fit effectively "seals" the cutting edge to the frame, even though it's exposed. Both blade and frame are 420J2 stainless steel. The design of the CRKT KISS Knives includes a pocket/money clip that permits them to be used in a variety of ways: clipped to the pocket; as a money clip knife; and with split-ring or lanyard, as a key chain knife.

In the wake of the success of the CRKT K.I.S.S. Knife, a flock of imitators has appeared; none offers the simple elegance of Ed Halligan's original design, and none offers the value of CRKT quality manufacturing. In fact, the more the CRKT Original KISS Knives are imitated, the better they look.
