Product Description

CRKT k.I.S.S. Fine edge tanto blade folding knife; made of highest quality material; manufacturer: leapers; SKU: 9001311

Amazon.com

5500-hand
The original K.I.S.S. pocket folding knife, designed by Ed Halligan (view larger).

The Original K.I.S.S., with its Tanto-inspired blade and bead-blast finish, is the revolutionary high-tech statement by Knifemakers' Guild member and K.I.S.S. designer Ed Halligan. One honey of a knife, the K.I.S.S. ("Keep It Super Simple.") is precision fine blanked for superior fit and smooth operation. It can 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.

5500-fold
Integral frame lock seals the cutting edge against the handle (view larger).

Like all folding knives in the 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 open the blade with one hand. 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 Original K.I.S.S. blade shape is Tanto-inspired — 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. This version comes with a razor-sharp edge, and both the blade and frame are 420J2 stainless steel in a fine bead-blast finish.

Designer Info

Ed Halligan "Big Daddy K.I.S.S." was the second noted knifemaker to work with CRKT. After 37 years as an aircraft technician with Delta Airlines, he founded Halligan Knives in Sharpsburg, Georgia, in 1985. He is the inventor of the K.I.S.S. (Keep It Super Simple) single-sided knife series, which has been widely copied, and has been translating his custom versions of it into CRKT production knives, which have proven to be exceptionally popular with knife enthusiasts and the general public.
