Does not appear to be any known toxicity for K1
. Hence no tolerable upper intake level has been set. Synthetic K3
OTOH can be toxic in large amounts. A serving of kale has about 7-8% of an average RDA. As an older male, the amount of iron in kale might represent a higher % but I'm not sweating it.
