Columbia River - K.I.S.S. - Combo Edge
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 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. Both Razor-Sharp and Combined Razor-Sharp edge grinds are available. Both blade and frame are 420J2 stainless steel in a fine bead-blast finish. 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.
