Perfecting perfection is no easy feat, but leave it to Best Made to take a knife that's been produced for over 100 years and make it even better. They've taken the Mercator K55K Cat Knife and worked with the manufacturer to create a brand new version that is exclusive to Best Made. 

Their version gives the handle a brass upgrade and stamps it with the words "Best" and "Made" on each side of the handle. They've also improved upon the locking action and upgraded the blade with C75 carbon steel. And of course, each Mercator K55K Cat Knife is also made in Solingen, German by Otter-Messer.
