OVERVIEW

These were originally produced in Germany in 1902 for export to their colonies in Africa. Production was moved to South Africa by 1988 and they are still handmade there today.

This more modern (and easier to care for) interpretation has rugged, weather-resistant, synthetic scales with a cherry wood look. The very efficient and substantial blade is forged from 1055 carbon steel and holds a great edge. One of the most common knives used by the working classes due to its simple function, reliability and affordability. This is a very robust knife used for harvesting crops, hunting, fishing, and EDC.  This all-around function also made it popular with street gangs where they call it "the Saturday night special". This slip joint folder is very light and easy to carry for its size.
