CRKT Slip KISS Knife - Compact Pocket Knife Product Info

Based on the classic aphorism that "Less is more", the CRKT Slip KISS Knife represents the K.I.S.S. series of knives stripped down to the bare essentials - no frame locks, no clips, just the lightest possible knife for everyday pen knife chores like opening packages and sharpening pencils. The CRKT Slip K.I.S.S. Knife is the lightest full-size K.I.S.S. knife yet, with a 2.75-inch blade, but weighing in at only 1.8 ounces. Designer Ed Halligan has removed everything but the bare essentials from this CRKT Knife, and in the process he has solved some deceptively challenging design problems. For example, the classic slip-joint pocket knife usually has a steel frame with full-length brass liners. Ed minimized the stainless steel frame, and riveted on two small brass liners to locate the blade laterally. For proper blade/frame alignment, Ed had to put a unique twist in the frame. In the process, there is a deep finger choil for grip. As a final touch, the frame on the CRKT KISS Slip Knife is engine turned, like the firewall on a vintage Bugatti Type 37 racer.

The handle of the Columbia River SLIP KISS Knife features carefully contoured scales that provide plenty of comfort and act as blade guards. CRKT injection molds them from a strong and lightweight composite that has a translucent abalone shell look. The high-carbon steel blade looks at first glance like any other flat-ground drop point pocket knife, with a nail nick for opening. But it is unusual in that the grind is asymmetrical-about 80% on the front, and nearly flat on the back-similar to other K.I.S.S. family designs.

No, the Columbia River Knife & Tool Slip K.I.S.S. Knife is not a heavy-duty work knife. Our catalog is full of knives with advanced locks and patented safeties intended for arduous cutting chores, so please choose one of them if you have a rough job to do. However, if you want a great lightweight pocket knife at a great price, with lots of style and a little bling-bling, the CRKT Slip KISS Pocket Knife is just the ticket.
