Great little knife. Very different then any knife in my large collection. Sharp and a great edc knife. I only have one complaint which is why I give it 4 stars. The clip is ridiculous! I have the Emerson Commander which is a large knife and the clip on the K.I.S.S. is twice the size. Why CRKT did this I do not know. I removed the enormous clip and just put it in my pocket when I feel like carrying it. It locks up solid. No play at all. Cool design. But that stupid large clip has to go.

I purchased two of these for Christmas gifts and they were big hits. The burl wood handles are really neat looking. It isn't a small pocket knife but the size is just right for an above average sized man. Had one recipient remove the clip and the other that preferred to use it. I bought ten knives and these were among the best. In my opinion, you can't go wrong with this blade.

I am very pleased with this knife I used it this deer season and used it to gut 7 deer in are deer camp also used it to skin. I know problems ripping through the ribs and only had to do a few minor touch ups with a steel along the way. Sharpened easy and stayed sharp, everything they said about this knife was true, would very much recommend this knife.

I was surprised how difficult it was to manipulate the release mechanism on the knife. You have to use a significant amount of force and the movement is minutely , it took some getting use to. A CRTK knife that has the simple extruding toggle on the side is far easier to open. Nonetheless is beautifully constructed and has a superior pointed tip.

The knife is slim, which doesn't take up much room in my pocket. It is sharp and well made. The only problem I have is it is somewhat difficult to learn to open, with having to unlock and open at the same time. I still like it enough to make it the main knife I carry.
