OTTER Pocket Knives: Knives for Outdoor, Household, Hunting and Handcraft
Handmade, robust and ageless — knives from Solingen, Germany
Pocket knives are ageless and even today as popular as they were in 1840, when OTTER-Messer was founded in Solingen in a small traditional water-powered grinding shop. Pocket knives should be robust and handy and have to withstand a variety of tasks and requirements. This is why we at OTTER-Messer manufacture our knives with careful manual work and according to traditional construction methods.
A knife for all cases
Pocket knives are literally knives for all cases. They don't just belong into the luggage of survival-trips, camping or other outdoor and leisure activities. Pocket knives are also practical tools in everyday life at work, at home and in the household because they are ready to hand, can be securely closed and transported and can be easily taken to the next location. They can also be stored in the tool box or in the kitchen drawer without any risk of injury.

Pocket knife or folding knife? What is the difference?
Whether Swiss Army knives, outdoor knives, Mercator knives, folding hunting knives or multi-tools: Pocket knives are handy and practical because they perfectly fit in every pocket. Since the blade of a pocket knife can be folded into the handle, the names folding knife and clasp knife are also common. Pocket knives and folding knives therefor refer to the same type of knife. Its characteristic is the folding mechanism, which makes the blade foldable in and out.
The folding mechanism ensures that a pocket or folding knife is transported safely and can even be safely carried close to the body, e.g. in your pocket. So you always have a versatile and quick-to-use tool at hand for home and handcrafts, gardening, camping or hunting, climbing, hiking, sailing and other outdoor activities. Depending on the pocket knife model, a locking system prevents the blade from accidentally folding in when working with the folding knife.
