CRKT 5520 PECK FOLDING KNIFE.
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 P.E.C.K.® (or Precision Engineered Compact Knife) is 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 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.
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
