OTTER-Messer Small Anchor Knife 174R, Sapeli Wood

Since 1840 Otter-Messer has been making high-quality knives in Solingen, Germany. Otter-Messer translates to "Otter Knives," inspired by the otters who call the water near the factory their home. Their traditional knife-making process means a focus on quality, as every knife is ground, stropped, and polished by hand. Simple, beautiful and traditional, an Otter-Messer knife is a great way to change up your EDC.

Otter-Messer's Small Anchor Knife is a non-locking, slip-joint pocket knife that has a curved sheepsfoot blade, which offers good control for detail work. The broad size of the blade also makes it work well for most EDC cutting tasks.

The handle is a made out of weatherproof Sapeli wood, which is a golden color that tends to darken with age, developing a unique look that differs from who carries it, how it's carried and the unique oils of an individuals skin. The handle includes a stainless bolster and brass anchor inlay.
