A Great Pocket Knife
One of the great things about this knife is that it is 4 3/8" long and you don't even know that it is in your pocket. And either the carbon or stainless steel is great. I have both. In 2010, Otter Messer, the maker of this knife, started making them with different colored handles. They are neat looking. Wish that KnifeCenter would start offering these also.

The perfect jack knife
I am a carpenter and have been for 58 years , I know tools , and this is without a doubt the best all around pocket knife that I have ever owned . You never know that you are carrying it until you need it ,... There is something right about this knife , that is why it has sold faithfully for 150 years ..

K55
Firstly,Thank you knife center! Quick delivery... As for the K55..it's a no b.s. pocket knife. Durable,no play in the blade..I had never owned a lock blade with this style of lock before,so I was a bit apprehensive,being used to buck style recessed locks..but I actually am impressed with this lock. The way your hand fits the knife , it avoids ever touching the lock. It's one of the more solid lockblades I've encountered. The carbon steel blade is scary sharp right out of the package as I would expect with any Solingen blade. It is amazingly light. For the price,you just can't argue. Everyone that's owned one says they have had it for years so it sounds dependable as well. This is deffinately a case of simple is better. And who dosent love cats? Der Katze ..sehr gut!
