Among most knife Collectors, CRKT has the image of being an entry level brand that uses entry level cutlery steels, and affordable materials in the production of their knives. That may be true to some degree, but CRKT sells a lot of knives, and has some great designers collaborating with them. One of them is Allen Elishewitz.

I received this Mike Franklin designed mini fixed blade as part of my birthday present from my fiance, who was my girlfriend at the time. She was so nervous giving me knives as a gift, since she didn’t know much about them. I think this is a cool little knife, even though it is a relatively cheap little guy.
Designed by Custom Maker Ed Halligan it is available in several combinations of blade shape and color and size.
I will review the KISS, though at several times in the past I have used/owned the PECK and other blade shapes of the KISS. KISS stands for Keep it Super Simple, which is what the knife is. 2 Main Peices, Frame and Blade. The blade closes flush against the frame so the blade edge is protected from cutting you. The edge on the blade needs to be chisel ground in order for that to work, which makes the blade cut crooked and more fragile.
