Otter-Messer Anchor Sailor's Knife
OTTER-Messer, which translates to OTTER "Knives", was founded in 1840 by the Berns brothers in Königsmühle, Solingen, a region of Bergisch Land. They manufactured simple and strong pocket knives finished with wooden scales, all of them hand made - grinded, 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. Today OTTER-Messer knives are fitted with C75 carbon steel blades, but the knives are still manufactured and stropped by hand. The knives are renowned in Solingen for their many applications and industrial quality.
This anchor inlayed sailor's knife is a great example of the quality of Otter-Messer knives. Boasting a broad curved blade for control, a weatherproof hardwood handle and the iconic brass anchor inlay, it is functional for a number of applications.
