This folding knife is by far the most popular knife from Otter. The history of this model goes back to 1867 when the India Works of Heinrich Kaufmann & Sons developed and manufactured the Mercator knife and registered it as D.R.G.M. (Deutsches Reich Gebrauchs Muster). Only the India Works were allowed to use the Mercator brand. Otter has owned the trademarks since 1995. During World War, the knife was known far beyond the borders of Germany, when it was issued to the soldiers of the German army under Emperor Wilhelm II. The end of the Second World War II brought about a breakthrough, with the knife becoming a cult object abroad. For American GIs returning home from Germany, the Mercator knife was one of the most popular souvenirs. Even today, the famous cat with the characters K55K - from Kaufmann's address at 55 High Street, Katze (cat) - is applied by hand in genuine gold paint. The metal box construction of the handle (powder-coated steel) means the knife is stable, flat, light and handy. An ideal daily companion, suitable for any jacket or trouser pocket. The finely ground stainless blade is made from the finest Solingen steel and locked securely with the back lock. Incl. metal eyelet on the handle end.
