Mercator knives are mainstay in tool boxes, fishing boxes, kitchen drawers and backpacks. It is an ideal knife for the hunter, fisherman or outdoorsman.
Their low price, slim design and durability make them an easy choice for a good solid Utilitarian knife.
But there is an extra sentimental aspect to them for many people that make them a little more special than your basic knife.
For many of us our first knife was a Mercator Cat knife. Many were carried, kicked around, thrown at trees, made into spears and sometimes lost by young boys.
These knives first came overseas 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.
