Not only is black the most popular color in knives in recent years, but it has real functional value. It is less reflective and creates a protective barrier against corrosion. So it is only natural that we would offer Knifemakers’ Guild Member and K.I.S.S. designer “Daddy K.I.S.S.” Ed Halligan’s creations in black dress. Today’s technology allows the blade, frame and clip to receive a special Teflon® plating that is tough and long lasting. K.I.S.S.® stands for “Keep It Super Simple.” It’s one honey of a knife, precision fine blanked for superior fit and smooth operation. Ed Halligan’s unique two-piece construction features an integral Frame Lock™, and a breakthrough design which seals the cutting edge against the handle. Blade and frame are 420J2 stainless steel. 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. 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. 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. This series has demonstrated instant appeal to law enforcement, the military and to those who just like its cool look.       Blade:Length: 2.25” (5,7 cm) Thickness: 0.12” (0.30 cm) Steel: 420J2, 54-56 HRC Closed: Handle length: 3.5” (8.9 cm) Open: Overall length: 5.75” (14.6 cm) Weight: 2.3 oz.
