8 in stock
The Otter Messer Copper Mercator is an exquisite knife manufactured the traditional way by Otter Messer in Solingen, Germany.
The Mercator knife is an all-time classic that entered popular culture after World War II when returning GIs brought the knife back to the US. This is a special edition version fashioned in brass with a rustproof steel blade and stainless steel rivets. This larger version of the Copper Mercator pocket knife has a strong (and safe) lock-back mechanism, a 9cm handle with a Copper ring and handy leather strap. The handle is embossed with the Otter Messer logo and also along the handles side with words: “Mercator Germany” (fantastic detail!).
This makes a wonderful gift for the discerning collector or anyone who appreciates meticulous design, detail and craftsmanship.
Comes in a nicely presented cardboard gift box.
