American GIs brought this Mercator knife back to America with them after World War II. There it became famous under the name "Black Cat Knife" and still has a cult following. The embossing is stamped in under a press and painted by hand after powder coating the handle.
Its name K55K originated from "K" for Kaufmann (the original manufacturer), "55" for Hochstra├če 55 (the original company address) and "K" for the cat (Katze) symbol.


The blade is available in a choice of stainless and carbon steel.

Review:

I bought this knife a week ago, and could not be happier with product quality. Design, length of blade, basic function and blade sharpness are all excellent. I look forward to getting good use out of this knife for many years.

Review:

As an addenda to the review below mentioning the Vickers test:- the blade is the C75 Carbon option, doubtless the stainless 4034 is also of the same high quality. I have this also, sharpened to the same standards, and so far it has retained it's edge well.

Review:

Excellent knife in every way. I sharpened the blade to a 40 degree included angle using Norton stones, finishing with Hard Translucent Arkansas and a strop, shaving sharp! and has held this edge very well. Out of curiosity I had a Vickers hardness test done on the blade and this came out at Vickers 633 - HRC 57!. Buy this knife. Thanks Otter Messer.
