The kind of old school apparatus that could cope with the bristles of a cowboy after a month long cattle drive.The Kissing Crane story began when a German scissors maker from Soligen named Peter Daniels Pauls married Johanne Amalie Storsbeg, whose father owned a penknife making business.In 1834, shortly after the marriage Pauls began to produce penknives on his own.The first shipment of Pauls’ Knives was shipped to the United States in 1850 and his high quality three- and four-blade knives were appreciated by both tradesmen and collectors alike.
Peter and Johanne’s daughter later married a young scissors maker named Frederich Robert Klaas, and after Pauls’ death, the two companies were merged to form the Robert Klaas Company in 1869.
The company has continuously manufactured pocket knives since 1910. During World War II, the company manufactured bayonets and carbine parts and earned UTICA the coveted Army-Navy E., as well as a number of other awards.
