MERCATOR OTTER KNIVES Cat K55K ROSTFREI (stainless) blade, at the very best price in New Zealand.
This is the genuine K55K from its manufacturer Otter Messer of Solingen Germany.
The American GI's brought the knife after the 2nd World war to America and made it famous there. The Knife "Made in Germany" with its embossed K55K there is still a cult. The imprint is stamped under the press and painted by hand as before after the powder coat. The name means K55K: "K" for a merchant (the original manufacturer), "55" for 55 high street (the original company address), "K" for the (cat).
For your clarification. Only the K55K model has the K55K imprint in the handle shell. The other plain mercator type models cost a little less to produce and don't have the stamped collectable K55K marque.
The other genuine mercator models on our site are without the K55K stamp are the same in terms of manufacturing as the K55K less the cost of the K55K stamp. This stamp is the only significant difference except for the compact slip joint model that is non back locking.
Our other mercators are therefore not listed or misrepresented as the K55K.
