What about Kissing Crane?

Postby JMH60 » Sun Apr 15, 2018 10:54 pm

Does anyone have any experience with Kissing Crane knives? Are they good quality? Looks like some are German made and some are not. Any input would be appreciated, thanks!

The old Robert Klaas Solingen-made ones were well made and good quality. Here's a thread with a lot of info. viewtopic.php?f=30&t=32377

The more recent Kissing Cranes are made in China. I have no interest in them, so can't speak to their quality.

I have been carrying this Kissing Crane around for the past year. Made in China. Only issue I had is the shield fell off after a 3 foot drop to the concrete shop floor, can't really blame the knife for that! They are glued on not riveted. The blades are just as good as any good quality Chinese made knife that I have owned (Schrade, Marble, and RR). Been resharpened several times. Cost was only about $15, so if you can get around the made in China stigma, they are ok for the money. I'm sure they are not nearly as good as the old german made ones however. ::handshake:: Terry
