The Mercator knife was first produced in Germany in the late 1860s and has since become a prized folder for its simple, functional design. This version, from the legendary Otter company, is made in Germany and boasts a brass handle that’s made from a single sheet of brass. Complete with a lockback mechanism to ensure safe operation and a nail nick for easy opening, the iconic folding knife is a basic but beautiful piece of functional design. Plus, thanks to the thin profile, the Brass Mercator Knife slips easily into pockets and bags. It’s a classic that will never go out of style.
