As part of their 2014 product range, Otter Messer have changed the specifications of their best selling Anchor folding pocket knives. The carbon steel, sheepfoot blade, 174 Anchor knife is now fitted with Sapeli wood handle scales. Sapeli wood is a sustainable African hardwood with a straight, light brown grain.

The lighter coloured wood now matches many of the other single blade folding work knives in the range, including the 166 German Soldier’s pocket knife and the 180, Wharncliffe blade knife. The much darker, Grenadil wood is now used in the stainless version of the Anchor knife, which is the more expensive version

Otter Messer Anchor Folding Knife With Leather Lanyard

Otter Messer Anchor Folding Knife With Leather Strip Lanyard

Otter Messer Anchor Folding Knife With Leather Lanyard Otter Knives

One of the new Otter-Messer knives available from January 2014 is a re-working of an established design. The small Anchor folding work knife, one of their best selling knives now has an added lanyard hole drilled in the handle. Drilling a hole in the handle of a folding knife may seem like a no brainer in terms of design. The hard part is fitting the knife blade and back spring together so the blade does not impinge on the hole when closed. If this were to happen, the blade would cut through any lanyard inserted through the hole.

The luxury version of the stainless blade, small Anchor 174R knife will be available with a pre-attached leathers trip lanyard cord attached. Meanwhile, carbon steel versions of the small Anchor 174 knife have a drilled lanyard hole from now on. Following the recent announcement of product quality improvements and a new blade sharpening service, all new Otter knives are shipping with a near razor factory edge.

The labour intensive process of making a pocket knife consists of many steps, including punching the blade blank, stamping the trademark, grinding the blade bevel, polishing the blade, shaping and polishing wooden handle scales and rivetting the handle together.

In the hands of an experienced grinding technician, blades are reputedly produced to a tolerance of two tenths of a millimetre. The only step of manufacture which is out sourced is the hardening and tempering stage, as this requires specialised high temperature operation facilities. This crucial step involves quenching the blades at a temperature of minus 80 degrees celcius.

Classic carbon steel is still preferred by many customers including the fishing industry due to the superior edge holding properties compared to stainless steel. With the correct heat treatment carbon steel has a fine molecular structure producing a blade which is flexible and also easy to re-sharpen.
