Our knife selection this holiday season includes a bunch of pocket knives for casual day to day use. They're all sleek, slim, and super-lightweight.
Our two new favorites are the Otter Messer Mercator in Brass and Copper. Along with a lot of other folks, we've come to love the Mercator blade. It's super sharp and strong, and now it's set in two pretty irresistible handles. The Mercator is a carbon steel blade, and this variation is a little shorter than the beloved Kat Knife. It's a perfect everyday carry and well-placed in the kitchen or workshop.

We've also long-carried some variation of the Higonokami knife. At the peak of the knife's popularity, there were 50 manufacturers producing them in Japan. In 1961, after a political assassination led to a banning of blades, the popularity waned and now there are very few manufacturers still making them. But we're big fans and have always made an effort to have them in stock.
We have the Higonokami in all-silver, but also in the always-trusty black...in two different sizes. Higonokami blades can easily clip onto your keychain, so they're great for quick on-the-go jobs. Plus, they look damn cool.

We also have the Anchor Knife in from Otter Messer, which features a strong blade that locks in a snap. Rounding out our favorite knives of the season are the majorly affordable Svord Mini Peasant Knives.
