Mercator Black Cat Lockback. 4-3/8" closed. Stainless blade with Mercator tang stamp. Black metal handles with shackle. Lockback mechanism. Made in Germany.
The original locking mechanism. It can be found mid spine or at the bottom of the handle, and it provides tight lockup that will wear well.

Pros: Overall Quality, Blade Sharpness, Handle Feel, Weight, Lock Type, Lock Ease of Use, None
Cons: Ease of Opening
Basic and solid
Different, but great, looking knife with a story. My only ding against it is the uneven paint in the k55k logo on mine. I have the stainless version. Sharpens well. Lock up inspires confidence. Good light use slicer. Would probably filet decently in a pinch, given the long narrow blade.

K55 Blackcat
Great knife for our craftsmen to use. Durable yet light weight and small enough to carry comfortably in your pocket.

Cons: None
Much better than my old one!
Fifty years ago, I purchased a carbon steel Japanese version. At that time, I did not realize it was a copy of this German made classic. Although still serviceable, I thought that I would be better served by a stainless version. I am thrilled at the quality of this product. Most stainless lockblade designs today have beltclips or other accoutrements that make them bulky and defeat the purpose of a convenient carry in an all-purpose knife. If this one is good for another 50 years, I will not be around to get full use of it, but it will be passed on to one of my kids.
