CRKT’s K.I.S.S. 5500 stands for Keep It Simple Stupid and this knife means just that. It’s tanto 8Cr13MoV blade is 2.25 inches. The handle is made from stainless steel and comes equipped with a frame lock and pocket clip. The Original K.I.S.S., with its Tanto-inspired blade and bead-blast finish, is the revolutionary high-tech statement by Knifemaker’ Guild member and K.I.S.S. designer “Daddy K.I.S.S.” Ed Halligan. It stand for ” Keep It Super Simple”. 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 blades and frame are 3Cr13 stainless steel in a fine bead-blast finish.
