CRKT KISS EDC

Anyone have experience with KISS knives? My boss says that he swears by them for his EDC and camp bags, but I don't know much about them other than being super simple and lightweight.

The fixed blade KISS is one of my EDCs. Blade is high carbon steel, so even though it's coated, it requires weekly maintenance due to perspiration. (High quality, thin oil like Sentry Solutions.)
I liked mine but I noticed that even in a closed position the blade edge would get dinged by my keys. I even had paper catch on it. But I imagine you could get a sheath but that would defeat the purpose. So that was a no go for me.
Hello, I'm not sure if the design has improved but I had one of these years ago and the lock slowly failed on me to the point where the knife became unusable. Cool design and fun little knife while it lasted, though.
