Their low price, slim design and durability make them an easy
choice for a good solid utilitarian knife.
For many of us our first knife was a Mercator K55 cat knife. Many were
carried, kicked around, thrown at trees, made into spears and
sometimes lost by young American boys.
These knives first came to the United States in the pockets of soldiers
returning from Europe after WWII.
Many of those knives although well used are still in good working condition
today. This is because the Mercator has a simple, time tested design
and excellent materials and construction
It is difficult to find a better knife for the price than a Mercator knife.
