As the noted architect Mies Van Der Rohe said, "Less is more." And this
Ed Halligan design is an answer to your request for a little less of his
very popular K.I.S.S. knives. It has a 2.75 -inch blade, but weighs in at only 1.8 ounces. Ed 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, he added two carefully contoured scales for comfort and as blade guards. We have 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.
