The second knifemaker to ever work with us, "Big Daddy K.I.S.S." knew his way around CRKT® headquarters and a 747. After years using tools as an aircraft mechanic, Ed founded Halligan Knives in 1985. He went on to earn a Mastersmith rating from the American Bladesmithing Society and invented the often imitated, never duplicated, legendary, K.I.S.S.® (Keep it Super Simple) knife series. Ed passed in 2014. His immeasurable contribution to knife-craft is greatly celebrated... and deeply missed.
