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 copper damask Mercator knife as a way to make a statement.
This traditional folding knife has a German damask steel blade, a lockback mechanism and has a nail nick opener. Damask steel has a very distinct look, which has a pattern that looks like flowing water. Each is unique. This knife also includes a leather strap and copper rivet.
The Copper Mercator can be used for a variety of everyday tasks and its traditional and minimalistic design is tough enough for everyday carry.
The OTTER-Messer Mercator in Copper is available in five variations:
