Mercator Large Brass

Regular price $90.00 AUD

Since 1840 Otter Messer have been making knives of incredible quality in Solingen Germany. American GI's brought this Mercator knife to America after World War II where it became a cult classic under the name "Black Cat Knife". The designation K55K means "K" for Kaufmann (the original manufacturer), "55" for Hochstrasse 55 (the original company address) and "K" for the symbol cat. This version is crafted with a brass handle. The soft metal will develop a beautiful patina over the years.
