CR5520K: P.E.C.K. in the Dark - 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.® in the Dark (or Precision Engineered Compact Knife) is our smaller black-on-black model with a tough black plating for those who prefer the tactical look. It's 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. 

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.

Great Idea - Terrible Steel
I used to carry this knife 10 years ago when I lived in New York City. I carried it on my keychain. I lost it a long time ago. I recently saw it while perusing this site and decided to pick one up. It’s a nifty little knife, no doubt. Great keychain knife (I only remember it partially opening in my pocket a couple times in years of carry- I have no permanent scars). If you want something to keep on your keychain open amazon boxes with, this is your knife. My only slight gripe is that the steel is HORRIBLE. It came pretty dull- not surprising and easily fixed. I took the time to take it to my good Japanese stones to try and get it shaving sharp and could barely get it there- and once I did I cut some cardboard and it was quickly back to dull. I wish CRKT would make a premium steel version, but I know that’s not their thing.

An excellent knife at a reasonable price
I have had one of these on my regular keychain for years and can't do without it. Once I had mine confiscated because I forgot and tried to go through airport security with it. Another time I lost my keys. Each time, I immediately reordered. A very convenient and effective knife that does not take up much space in my pocket.
