Ed Halligan Custom Knives
Ed Halligan, rest his soul, found his way into the knife industry after 37 years as an aircraft technician for Delta. He began making knives in 1985 and in 1996 earned his Mastersmith rating from the American Bladesmithing Society. Mr. Halligan preferred to do all his own work in house including heat treating, forging, and making his own Damascus. He is best known as the inventor of the KISS 'Keep It Super Simple' single-sided knife design which has been copied and used the world over. Ed passed away in November 2014 and we are saddened to lose such a class act as Ed Halligan was. His knives and his designs will live on--it's a true honor for us to offer his products to you.
