This classic pocket-knife has been produced in Germany since about 1867. Originally produced by Hy. Kauffmann, it's now manufactured by Otto-Messer's Mercator division. Why has the K55K been around for 145 years? Rather simple really, it's that dang good. It is a simple design which is both very practical yet blessed with handsome good looks. The K55K was popular as an `Every Day Carry' knife long before the phrase was even coined. It remains in production to this day because it performs its job as well now as it did 145 years ago.
This model was designed by Heinrich Kaufmann who also founded the original company. The name `Mercator' is Latin for `trader' which is the English meaning of Kaufmann. The model name K55K also carries a meaning with it. The first `K' stands for the founder's last name. 55 was the original street number of the company while the second backwards `K' stood for `Katz' (cat). The engraved leaping cat and black color earned it the nickname `Black Cat'. While the design is simple it is very different than the French Opinel and very German in its form. The handle consists of a folded piece of stamped steel, painted black and engraved with its distinctive logo. Components are assembled onto the steel handle and riveted in place. Dimensions are 7 7/8 inches open with a 3.5 inch long blade. Closed it measures 4 3/8 inches and weighs just 2.6 ounces. The spear-point blade is manufactured from XC75 carbon steel (stainless is an option). It features a simple but reliable locking system in the form of a spring-loaded lever on the spine. When the blade is opened this locks solidly (with a nice Old World `snap') into a cut-out at the base of the blade. The locking lever must be firmly depressed to fold the blade.

Despite having a spearpoint blade (I would rather have a drop point) this knife is of outstanding quality for the money. I use it in the garden for heavier chores that my Opinel No. 8 will not do well. The French made Opinel No. 8 which I love is sometimes too light. The Opinel No. 8 is outstanding for cutting off greens and trimming plants. I use the Opinel No. 8 for many things but have started using this German made knife for heavier tasks. It is simply an outstanding knife. So it is basically my Opinel No. 8 for lighter garden tasks and my Black Cat knife for heavier tasks. I keep both of them handy when I am outside. I have not sharpened this knife yet to find out how easy it is to sharpen. The Opinel No. 8 is extremely easy to sharpen. Both knives have carbon blades which I love. OUTSTANDING. Both the Opinel No. 8 and the Black Cat are excellent everyday carry knives. The Black Cat is much slimmer and some will prefer its flat, trim design. However, the Opinel No. 8 feels better in my hand than the Black Cat. I love them both and am "blown away" at the quality of both of these knives!

Simple design and tight function. Knife blade took an edge very well and stays sharp. I like that it is a bit longer than most knives like it, it's made in Germany , and no loose or over tight parts.

Well-made, sharp as can be, folds up nice and neatly. Put a lanyard (like the useless ones that come with cell phones) on the loop on the end -- you don't want to lose the knife when you're using it, yes? I had/have one of these knives from the 80s but I cannot find it, so I bought a new one. It was about twice what I paid for the old on 20+ years ago. It's an ideal EDC knife. No nonsense, this is a real knife that will cut anything you need cut. The lockback feature is essential. You do not want a knife to close on your fingers! And should worse come to worst, remember, NO overhead movie drama, crouch down low and slice from side to side, maintain your defense and do some damage until you can remove yourself or the perp from the situation. Never try any of those overhead stabbing moves, which expose you to serious damage.

btw why does the Amazon page show a stereo system or a lampshade instead of the knife?

Cheap. Tough. Sharpens easily. Dead simple. Timeless design that is over 150 years old.

I bought this knife to replace my treasured white steel higonokami.
There is zero play on my knife.
The lock back is dead solid and smooth.
The blade is a bit awkward, but sharpens to scary sharp on pretty much anything (newspaper, cardboard, back of a coffee mug).

Edge retention isn't great (compared to my Japanese steel).
Blade is tough as nuts. Nice fit and finish. My designer friend thought that it was ultramodern.

This literally hides in my pocket when I don't need it---in fact, I'm not sure where I put it.
I'm probably not going to get another, as I really don't need a pocket knife.

But if I was going to get another pocket knife, the mercator would be on my short list.
