Otter Folding Work Knife 574
The 8 cm long, full flat grind, C75 carbon steel blade is 2.5 cm wide. This makes it easy to open the blade under wet working conditions or when wearing gloves. The Otter Messer 57-4 folding pocket knife has a blunt ended, sheep foot blade with a perfectly straight cutting edge, making it ideal for wood working, horticultural work, harvesting etc. The 57-4 pocket knife has bubinga wood handle scales fitted to steel handle liners with steel bolsters. A scaled own version of the 57-4, the 57-5 is also available.
Otter Messer pocket knives are hand made in Solingen, Germany with C75 carbon steel blades. This is generally harder than stainless steel and holds a longer lasting cutting edge. Note: carbon steel blades need to be cleaned and oiled after use to prevent corrosion. Surface corrosion may be removed using fine emery cloth.
