K.I.S.S.® IN THE DARK WITH TRIPLE POINT™ SERRATIONS

Winner of Blade Magazine Knife of the Year! 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.”

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. Both Razor-Sharp and Combined Razor-Sharp and Triple-Point™ Serrated edge grinds are available. Both blade and frame are 3CR13 stainless steel in a fine bead-blast finish.

  • Keep It Super Simple
  • Innovative Two-Piece Design: Blade and Frame
  • Triple Point™ Serrations


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.

The K.I.S.S.® in the Dark features blade, frame, clip and hardware in black non-reflective plating that is tough and long lasting.

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 and Triple-Point™ Serrated edge grinds are available. Both blade and frame are 420J2 stainless.

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., 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.

    Bought this last June 2019 from the legends at Knifewarehouse. I’ve been using it daily since and it so far has not let me down. Superb build quality, easy to disassemble for cleaning and maintenance. I use it for work purposes and find it extremely easy to operate single handed. No blade wobble or wear on the pivot points. CRKT are an innovative and extremely good value brand and Knifewarehouse are a fantastic company to deal with!
