With this knife, Otter has reissued the Mercator in its historical form. Instead of the classical black steel casing, the handle is now made of brass, creating an elegant look. This Mercator knife possesses all the properties you have come to value: small, functional and reliable.
This model is the smaller brass knife with a carbon steel blade.
OTTER knives are manufactured and sharpened in Solingen, Germany since 1840, using traditional methods of meticulous handcraftsmanship.
Since brass is a very soft material, small tool marks from the knife manufacturing are hard to avoid. These are not defects, but rather witness to the individuality of the knife.
