    Just got this German Otter-Messer knife in the other day.

    Solingen made carbon steel old-school sweetness :D Good walk-n-talk, strong beartrap backspring, hand-filling bone scales.

    The knife in the last photo is an old German made "Contento"

    Cuts well, the blade is nicely ground. Came out of the box with a utility edge, but it didn't take long to clean that up into evil sharp :D

    I got it here - Worldknives
