In the Making: Otter-Messer Factory, Solingen Germany.

Back in ‘o8, I made mention of this folding knife. German-made by Otter-Messer(est. 1887), I got mine a few years back from Garrett Wade, lost it and got another. Classic design. Hand-made. Love the inlaid brass anchor. Came across this video recently, shot back in ‘o7, showing some of the process involved in making this very knife.

    Great knife! Otter-Messer also makes the Mercator K55K, which I love. Dates back to the early 1900s. Brought back by a lot of GIs after WW2. World Knives carries it and they also have the anchor knife.http://www.worldknives.com/products/mercator-german-k55k-cat-folding-pocket-knife-k55k-1120.html
