There's nothing like the real thing. The Original K.I.S.S., family 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." Delilah's Peck. in the Dark (or Precision Engineered Compact Knife) from Columbia River is the smaller black-on-black model with a tough black plating for those who prefer the tactical look. It's Ed's baby, weighing less than 1 oz. and only 2.625 inches long when closed. Just think of it as a sweet little K.I.S.S. When open, the graceful 1.75" Razor-Sharp Wharncliffe blade is a high-performance cutting tool suited for hundreds of daily tasks. 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 blade features a Wharncliffe 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. 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. In the wake of the success of the K.I.S.S. and P.E.C.K., a flock of imitators has appeared; none offers the simple elegance of Ed Halligan's original design, and none offers the value of CRKT quality manufacturing. In fact, the more Ed's design is imitated, the better it looks.
The Columbia River Peck In The Dark Pocket Knife is a folding pocket knife so light and small you've got no reason not to bring it along in the backcountry. P.E.C.K. stands for Precision Engineered Compact Knife. Black corrosion-resistant treatment keeps this folder in top shape for years and years. CRKT's innovative two-piece construction puts the handle on one side and the blade on the other when folded for the slimmest profile. Integral Frame Lock makes this knife safe and easy to use. The thumb stud makes for one-handed opening and closing. Fine blade is versatile and sharp. Made from durable and light Stainless Steel. When closed, the cutting edge is sealed against the frame so it can't accidentally cut. Pocket clip keeps it secure where ever you want to keep it. Small enough to keep on a key chain too. Small and light, this pocket knife is one of our best sellers. Weight: .9 oz. Blade: Straight Edge. Blade length: 1.88 inch. Closed length: 2.62 inch. Material: Stainless steel

Thumb stud is used to open the blade one-handed; precision, fine-blanked construction ensures superior fit and smooth operation.
