This simple but extremely rugged pocket knife is produced by Otter-Messer, makers of high quality knives in Solingen, Germany since 1840. Otter-Messer, which translates to "Otter Knives," manufactures simple and strong pocket knives finished with dark rosewood or hardwood scales. All of their products are handmade—ground, stropped (straightened with a leather strap), and polished—in their small factory. The otters who lived in the streams and brooks next the little factory inspired the both the logo and the name.
Functionality and simple beauty - those are the attributes distinguishing this classic OTTER model. The anchor knife is a true eye catcher. The stainless steel anchor inlaid into the wooden handle gives this pocket knife a special flair. Together with the dark handle sides made of fine smoked oak, it creates a remarkable contrast. Sheepsfoot blade is descended from nautical knives, since the absence of a straight pointed blade makes stabbing incidents less likely - useful for the turbulent nature of the sea and the turbulent demeanor of shanghai'd or indentured sailors... as well as for those of us landlocked and accident prone.
