CR5520: P.E.C.K. - Designed by Ed Halligan
There's nothing like the real thing. The Original K.I.S.S.®, family is the revolutionary high-tech statement by Knifemakers' Guild member and K.I.S.S. designer "Daddy K.I.S.S." Ed Halligan. It stands for "Keep It Super Simple." 

Delilah's P.E.C.K.® (or Precision Engineered Compact Knife) is Ed's baby, weighing less than 1 oz. and only 2.625 inches long when closed. Just think of it as a sweet little K.I.S.S. When open, the graceful 1.75" Razor-Sharp Wharncliffe blade is a high-performance cutting tool suited for hundreds of daily tasks. 

A thumb stud is used to one-hand open the blade, and as the blade is fully rotated open, the frame lock snaps crisply in behind the blade to give a sound lockup. The blade can be closed with one hand, simply by releasing the frame lock. 

The blade features a Wharncliffe 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 blade and frame are 420J2 stainless steel in a fine bead-blast finish. 

The design of the K.I.S.S. series pocket/money clip permits them to be used in a variety of ways: clipped to the pocket; as a money clip knife; and with split-ring or lanyard, as a key chain knife. 

In the wake of the success of the K.I.S.S. and P.E.C.K., a flock of imitators has appeared; none offers the simple elegance of Ed Halligan's original design, and none offers the value of CRKT quality manufacturing. In fact, the more Ed's design is imitated, the better it looks.

Pros: Ease of Opening, Blade Sharpness, Handle Feel, Overall Quality
Cons: None
Simple, subtle, serious little knife
Small EDC knife discretely fits into jeans upper change pocket. Really like the super sharp Wharncliff blade and the easy one handed open and close. Thinking I might just buy a couple more as Christmas gifts.

Pros: Blade Material, Overall Quality, Lock Ease of Use, Weight, Blade Sharpness, Ease of Opening, Lock Type
Cons: None
I buy them a few at a time and often.
I have one on every key ring, I have given dozens away as gifts and I keep a few spares at home. They are very sharp when new. Sharp enough for emergency surgery, and they hold up rather well even in regular daily use. (It is the perfect tool for splinter removal.) But after a year or so I can't get an edge as sharp as the factory so I just order a few more. The price point, not the quality, makes them "disposable". I have basket on my desk, full of nice pocket knives, some rather expensive, with impressive brand names. But this is the little inexpensive bugger that gets used 15 times every day. Those friends whom I have given this knife to as a gift also find it as useful as their TV remote or home microwave. This is a tiny very high quality knife, at bargain prices that one may end up using as much as all your other knives combined. And it is so tiny on a key ring, one can take it anywhere. I love the damn thing! Don't by one, buy 5, then buy a few more as you need them or give them away. People still call me: "Remember that little knife you gave me? Where can I get a few more just like it?"
