There's nothing like the real thing. 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 "Daddy K.I.S.S." Ed Halligan. It stands for "Keep It Super Simple." It's one honey of a knife, precision fine blanked for superior fit and smooth operation.
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 one-hand open the blade, and as the blade is fully rotated open, the Frame Lock snaps crisply in behind the blade to guarantee a sound lock-up. The blade can be closed with one hand, simply by releasing the Frame Lock.
Both blade and frame are 420J2 stainless steel in a fine bead blast finish.
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.
The design of the K.I.S.S. series pocket/money clip 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.
