Description

The Otter Mercator Black Cat 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 I, 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 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. The finely ground carbon blade is made from the finest Solingen steel and locked securely with the back lock. A metal eyelet on the handle end enables the attachment of your favourite lanyard.

Reviews

  1. A fine knife with a attractive history.Review by
    Rating
    I wanted a good solid knife that had a lovely history, something old school looking, I was debating buying the Douk Douk knife but then I found this and after reading the description I was sold.

    The knife is a good weight and easy on the eyes, feels good to wield also and cuts nicely, will need a bit more sharpening but that’s easily done.

    I’m glad with my purchase and thanks to Hennei Haynes for the great customer service.

  2. A good knifeReview by
    Rating
    A little rough on the edges as to be expected being made of steel, but the blade is straight and the lock is solid, decent edge that could do with a little sharpening.

    A great knife i highly recommend if you like that old school look and feel
