Mercator Knives

View all Mercator Knives

The utility of knives as a tool was surpassed with the role of weapons in the World Wars I and II. This invited the attention of several cutlery brands, among them Mercator Knives. Its most popular model, Mercator K55K, added great relevance in the name of Mercator Knives. Founded by Heinrich Kauffmann, the production of Mercator Knives was on its peak during 1856 to 1995. However, these knives are currently manufactured by Otter-Messer. Mercator Knives  can be identified by their black paint and feature an engraved outline of a cat leaping.


Historical Significance of the Mercator K55K

Once acclaimed as the "weapon of choice among the older teenagers of the South Bronx”, Mercator K55K is often confused with a French Douk-Douk knife. Overtime, knife critics pointed out dissimilarities in the blade geometry for both, except for the folded-metal handle. This lockback emerged out as the most preferred pocketknife by German troops during the World War 2.
