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, with the traditional Black Cat Mercator knife as a way to add simple utility to your pocket.

It's simple and flat design offers a good weight in your hand, while the blade opens smoothly and black locks solidly. It's been in production since 1867. During the World Wars, many German troops carried the Black Cat Mercator, and American soldiers returned carrying these same knives. This version of the Black Cat has a C75 carbon steel blade and a lock back mechanism.

It's a no-nonsense knife that will add utility to your EDC. The black stainless steel handle is 4.25" long and features an engraving with the outline of a leaping cat and the legend "K55K", with the second "K" being backwards. It weighs only 2.9 ounces. Pull the blade open with the nail-nick opener and it will lock into place.

The K55K Black Cat is available in two different blade materials:

  1. Stainless Steel Blade 
  2. Carbon Blade (Current Product)
