CRKT Slip K.I.S.S. II 5565A Folding Knife (2" Plain)

CRKT had customers say, “How about a simple pocket knife version that uses a traditional slip joint? No frame locks, no clips. Just the lightest possible knife for everyday pen knife chores like opening packages and sharpening pencils.”

Ed Halligan prototyped CRKT's new Slip K.I.S.S.® folder. The result is the lightest full size K.I.S.S. knife yet. It has a 2 inch blade, but weighs in at only 1.0 ounces.

Ed has removed everything but the bare essentials. He minimized the stainless steel frame, and riveted on two small brass liners to locate the blade laterally. For proper blade/frame alignment, Ed had to put a unique twist in the frame. In the process, there is a deep finger choil for grip. As a final touch, the frame is engine turned, like the firewall on a vintage Bugatti Type 37 racer.

Next, Ed carefully contoured scales for comfort and as blade guards. CRKT has been able to injection mold them from a strong and lightweight composite that has a translucent abalone shell look.

The high-carbon steel blade looks at first glance like any other flat-ground drop point pocket knife, with a nail nick for opening. But it is unusual in that the grind is asymmetrical—about 80% on the front, and nearly flat on the back—similar to other K.I.S.S. family designs.

If you want a great lightweight pocket knife at a great price, with lots of style and a little bling-bling, then look no further.
