CRKT K.I.S.S. In The Dark, Black Plain Edge (5500K)


CRKT K.I.S.S in the Dark

Designed by Ed Halligan in Ocean Springs, Mississippi

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.”

The K.I.S.S.® in The Dark 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. Both Razor-Sharp and Combined Razor-Sharp and Triple-Point™ Serrated edge grinds are available. Both blade and frame are 3CR13 stainless steel in a fine bead-blast finish.

  • K.I.S.S. – Keep. It. Super. Simple.
  • Innovative Two-Piece Design: Blade and Frame
  • Black Corrosion Resistant Coating
