The Columbia River Kiss Regular Edge Pocket Knife is a super low profile pocket knife with an innovative design. K.I.S.S. stands for keep it super simple, the ethos of this knife. By only having a frame on one side of the blade, and mounting the blade flush so it can't cut when closed, this pocket knife is as slender in your pocket as can be. Bead-blast finish looks cool and has great grip. The thumb stud allows for one-handed opening and closing. A frame lock insures the blade stays in place while you're working with it. The chisel-point blade is versatile and razor sharp. Made from 420J2 stainless steel for long life and strength. The pocket clip keeps it where you want it, or a lanyard hole can keep it on a key chain. Simple, light and effective, this is an excellent folding knife for outdoor enthusiasts. Blade length: 2.25 in. Open total length: 5.75 in. Closed length: 3.5 in. Weight: 2.3 oz. thickness: .12 in. Material: 420J2. Grind: Chisel Point. Style: Tanto. Lock: Integral Frame

There s nothing like the real thing. The Original CRKT 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 blade and frame are 420J2 stainless steel in a fine bead-blast finish.
