Well I see them sold on T.V. late at night, along with Frost Cutlery(crap) so that should tell ya something. Not a high dollar knife. Now I'm not a 100% sure but I think its German made and have been around for awhile. Good affordable knife.

Default Kissing Crane

Sir, an old company with a very strong following

All Kissing Crane Knives
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------



Handmade Traditional Knives from Solingen, Germany

Kissing Crane was founded in 1834 and went into full time production of pocket knives in 1880.

Kissing Crane Knives are produced by the Robert Klaas factory in Solingen, Germany, where master cutlers have been crafting quality knives for over 175 years.

Kissing Crane is a line of traditional pocket knives, hunting knives, and folding knives that are assembled and polished by hand.

The Kissing Crane Knives have been a favorite for many generations, and continue to be in strong demand by the serious collector and user alike.

The original Klaas company no longer exists. Frost or Parker has the rights to the "kissing Cranes" logo, and is having the new knives made in China.
Older Klaas knives were very well made.

Kissing Crane used to be one of the best knives made. AS already posted another company makes them now. The new ones I've seen put a sticker on them saying they are made in China. Some are taking advantage of this and peeling it off trying to make people believe it's a Klaas knife.

Your Grandfathers knife is a very well made knife I'm sure. I have a couple old Klaas stilettos that are very nice. And one of the new ones that you can obviously see the difference in quality. I love the old ones. Being a Case knife collector I've got to see a bunch of the old ones and hope to get a few in my very small and sad collection some time in the future.

The Kissing Crane stilettos have always been made for Klaas, in Maniago, Italy. They are not German.
The newer ones are Chinese, as noted.

I know what they SAY. Just telling you where they are MADE.
German law allows them to stamp "Germany" on products made for importation into Germany. Most Puma knives are made in Spain, now. They still say "Germany."
Most products stamped "Solingen" were actually made there, but I have seen this change recently.

I am sorry but I have to disagree.

There are Puma knives that are made in Spain and there are still some made in Germany and they are not marked alike. I know since I collect a few of them.
