  AITOR OF SPAIN  since 1939      Survival knives for when lives are on the line!
The original and genuine Aitor - still manufactured in its country of origin - Spain!
 

click here for our full range and dedicated AITOR  webpage

Founded in 1939, Aitor initially functioned as a sector cutler and hardware dealer, producing pocketknives (known as the 'red line') plus a few sports knives. The firm evolved into the production of a more refined ‘Green  Line’ range of multi-purpose pocketknives, as well as green-handled survival knives for military and police use.  Aitor's reputation as a prestigious knife manufacturer rapidly spread across Spain and around Europe. Soon, Aitor was servicing an expanding overseas market for their uniquely styled, functionally reliable bladeware.  These days 50% of Aitor products are exported, mainly to neighbouring countries Germany, France and Italy and further afield into Japan, Argentina and the USA. 
Aitor utilizes stainless steel that includes in its chemical analysis carbon (inox) 1.50 and chromium 13, which is not dissimilar to 440C stainless bladesteel inclusions, but with better features. Heat treatment (hardening & tempering) is between 56RC & 58RC (Rockwell hardness). Each Aitor blade bears the RC test punch mark as part of the quality control process.

Aitor products have always attracted the attention of Australian outdoor users when made available... and we are pleased to be able to present the following range, ideal for Australian conditions.

  •  
    • Tough and dependable efficient bladeware for the serious outdoors knife user.
    • European stainless bladesteel (includes Carbon 1.5, Chromium 13) precisely hardened & tempered (58RC).
    • A Rockwell Hardness test punch mark appears on blades.

     
  • NATO belt knives (cuchillos) 
  • Green Line Pocketknives (navajas multiusos). 
  • Military/Civilian Survival knives
  • Bol Machete
  • Aitor ~ pig knife and hatchet  - Olivewood handles.

SPANISH MUELA: Products of Muela Manufacturas of Spain,
established by Eladio Muela – a knife producer since 1952.

More than 50 years ago Eladio Muela handcrafted his first knife - a fine piece of work that began the Muela company’s proud history of knifemaking in the Spanish tradition. From its beginnings in a small workshop, Muela now produces around 350,000 pieces a year in its modern factory, located in Ciudad Real, Castile-La Mancha, Spain.

Combining old world craftsmanship with modern production technologies, Muela knives are meant to last, and are exceptionally beautiful and functional. Blades are produced primarily from high-quality martensitic steel alloyed with chrome, vanadium and molybdenum. Handles feature stag, wood, micarta and rubber. Each knife comes with a one year warranty

Muela's production series of knives utilize a tough 440C high carbon stainless with exceptional edge-holding qualities.

    MERCATOR of GERMANY
"New Zealand Posssum knife"
 
This almost indestructible flat and lightweight all-metal Mercator lock-back folder has a 9-cm drop-point carbon blade that can take an excellent edge, will hold it well and can be readily re-honed.

Mercators have ‘skun’ literally millions of  Enzed possums over decades, which makes them ideal for processing soft skinned feral game in Oz. But why should the hunters have all the fun?

 Mercators are handy to have around the house and workshop and the toolbox... and these useful folders don’t look out of place on your office desk.

A Brief History: 
Mercator manufacture stems back to around 1840 when the Berns brothers established the company Gebr. Berns in Konigsmuhle in Solingen, a region of Bergisch Land. They manufactured pocketknives branded Otter-Messer in a very small factory. The fish otters, living in streams and brooks next to the little factory gave rise to the brand name and logo. At that time, only simple and strong pocketknives were produced in many different versions, finished with timber scales, all hand crafted – ground, stropped and polished. The Otter-Messer trademark was first registered in 1847 and the firm later moved to Hohsheid in the heart of Solingen.
In 1989, when Berns closed the company, Mr. Rainer Morsbach took over the Otter trademark and knife production was carried on at Merscheid in Solingen. Hand-made and mainly fitted with carbon-steel blades (code 2003/C75) the expanded range today includes industrial-quality knives for use in households as well as by florists, gardeners, outdoor enthusiasts and in various industries.
Early history also includes the Solingen company Heinrich Von Kaufmann & Sohne Indiawerk, which developed and registered the Mercator style pocketknife about 1867. Over the years the Mercator knife concept has been much copied, but there is only one genuine model, the one with Mercator-Germany stamped onto the back of the strong iron case (handle). 
The knives were delivered into the hands of the soldiers of the German Emperor Wilhelm II and gained fame during WW I. In fact, Mercator knives became universally popular because of their sharpness, flatness and easy handling. Multi-bladed Mercators were produced between WWI and WWII and  stamped Mercator-DRGM (Deutsches Reich Gebrauchs Muster). After WWII, the company reverted back to producing only single blade models. 
The Kaufmann company closed in 1995 and Mr. Morsbach of Otter-Messer took over the Mercator tradename and perpetuated the production of genuine Mercator (black handle) knives, also known as K55 Cat Knife.

RETURN OF GREGSTEEL TRADE BLADES

 

Gregsteel is the popular trademark used by Gregory Steel Products Pty Ltd of Melbourne, the famous Australian manufacturer of cutlery for more than 6 decades. Jim Gregory began the business in 1912 which petered out of existence in the mid 1970’s. During the 1950’s Gregory Steel Products was the largest manufacturer of cutlery products in the Southern Hemisphere. Prior to that they were Australia’s biggest producer of military bladeware (not including bayonets) for Australian and American defence forces serving in Asia and the Pacific Ocean in World war Two.

Often taken for granted was Gregory’s wide range of mass-produced, good quality kitchen knives and trade knives that were used more or less on a daily basis. Admittedly, not as aesthetically exciting as most military and recreational type knives, but nonetheless just as useful when you need the right tool for the right job. In fact, Gregory Steel also supplied thousands of kitchen and trade knives (also tableware) for the war effort bearing the D(broad arrow)D Australian Defence Force (ADF) mark.

The Gregsteel/Gregory Steel Products Trade Mark #711548 in the Register of Trade Marks was registered by Keith Spencer (Australasian Knife Collectors –AKC) since 26 June 1996 and has been applied previously to replications of Australian-made military type knives (Gregsteel Stiletto & Gregsteel Bowie hand-crafted by custom knifemaker Zane Darcy Shaw).

Preparing Gregsteel trade blades for re-entry into the Australian marketplace has been a tedious, long-term project. No factory in this country was either prepared to or capable of manufacturing the Gregsteel patterns to the level of quality demanded and at the price required to re-launch Gregory Steel Products. Because Gregsteel trade blades couldn't be satisfactorily made in Australia, the next best option was to travel back along the lineage to England, Sheffield in particular.

The high carbon bladesteel had to be right, so too the blade shapes, as well as handles securely hafted in the traditional way. 
J Adams Ltd was the obvious choice, a long established firm with an impeccable track record for the production of trade blades. Under the tradename of J Nowill, this firm already supplies AKC MAILORDER with trade-type Aussie Rabbiter’s Kits & Bushman’s Kits and Australian Bushknives; faithfully reproduced old practical patterns popularized in Australia – so why not a collaboration on Gregsteel trade blades!

SICUT of AUSTRALIA        Robust  -  reliable  -  functional  - Australian designed

Basic bladeware at affordable prices – 100% emphasis on function.

While other Australian knife distributors began importing bladeware in earnest from Central Asia during the 1980s & 90s, we turned our attention to manufacturers of affordable cutlery elsewhere. Under our own brand name of SICUT and to our own designs and prototypes, we engaged the services of an excellent factory in Pakistan to produce our specialized bladeware; Mini Survival Knives for pocket-size kits and traditional craftsmen of Indonesia for our Bushcraft and large working-knife range.
  • Spencer prototypes extensively field tested before becoming SICUT production models
  • Australian-designed for Australian usage
"I was wondering if you still had any stock of the Sicut Mintan left? I've unfortunately lost the one I purchased many years ago, and I'd like to purchase another. (I may have just misplaced it, but it's not in any of the usual suspect placeds I leave things, and I haven't found it for 12 months, so it's MIA!) The Mintan was such a handy knife and I took it bushwalking and beach combing all the time." John, Feb 2014 
#SIMT: SICUT MINTAN  It's Back!
Kit & neck knife with leather pouch. 10-cm o/all. The second in the Sicut mini-survival range, the Mintan continues the tradition of an uncluttered mini survival knife sized for kits. 

The Mintan features

  • Double-edged blade - two sharp cutting sections without a 'dagger configuration'.
  • Spear point for piercing  One edge for whittling 
  • One edge for slicing
  • Flat side for sharpening/shaving tasks 
  • Full-tang strength 
  • Secure grip handle shape
  • Stain resistant steel
  • Low Rockwell Hardness for ease of sharpening 
  • Tie holes countersunk 
  • Lanyard hole for neck carrying 
  • Leather scabbard 
  • Cord for neck carry and 'tying' tasks
  • Designed by Australians and manufactured to Australian specifications

Designed by Keith Spencer (Australia) & manufactured in Pakistan, the Mintan fits into pocket-size survival kits

No attempt has been made to clutter this knife's basic function with any gadgetry.  The lightweight, sturdy and compact construction is designed with the user in mind.

  • The slightly oversize handles can (if required) be quickly & easily customized using a file & sandpaper to suit the user’s hand. Contour for comfort. 
  • Angled-down grips ensure the knife is always ‘live’; that is, the working part of the blade is ‘pitched’ forward ready to be activated. Blades with angled-down grips have more ‘follow-through’.

The Cutting Technique


The following technique will maximize cutting efficiency & minimize fatigue. 1. Firmly grip angled-down handle with forefinger & thumb and loosely grip with three remaining fingers

2. Cock hand back at the wrist for forward, backward, upward & downward slashes.
 

3. And finally; In a relaxed fashion, sweep & direct the working part of the blade (about 12 to 14-cm back from the tip) to the point of focus. At the moment of impact un-cock the wrist & ‘snap’ the three fingers firmly around the handle.

This almost effortless procedure ‘draws’ the blade & provides much impetus to the cutting impact – sometimes referred to as the ‘bite’ of the blade

A word of warning.
Make sure that you (and others) are safe from the glancing blow of a mis-timed cut. For example, if slashing downwards on your right hand side into hard deadwood, make sure that your right leg is well forward out of the way of a glancing blade. Before doing any cutting job ask yourself, “Is it safe?”

Practice makes perfect
With practice this simple technique can be perfected and a blade swinging rhythm can be achieved - a kind of effortless cutting efficiency that can be sustained for long periods - just like the villagers and field workers of the Indonesian Archipelago.

Blade maintenance. Keep blades sharp and lightly oiled when not in use. Remember, the best way to sharpen a knife is never to allow it to get dull – keep it touched up by stone or steel.

Historic 1910 Product & Price Catalogue
 
Only $12.50 plus post.
300 years after the first corporate mark was granted to Thomas Nowill, the Nowill & Sons-Sheffield tradename still appears on cutlery manufactured in Sheffield, England. The ‘crossed keys’ trademark was granted to Thomas’s great, great grandson John Nowill in 1842. The ‘crossed keys’ trademark and J Nowill & Sons tradename appears on the British Ministry of Defence Fairbairn Sykes Commando knife and the Jungle Survival Knife, as well as on traditionally made trade and hunting knives, including Aussie Rabbiter’s Kits.
This authentic reproduction of  the original 34-page catalogue features over 170 illustrations of fabulous cutlery (including pocket and penknives, tableware, razors and scissors) on offer a hundred years ago. 
A real capture for knife collectors and aficionados. 
 
 
GJK:  "Golang" - British Jungle Blade
British military prototype. Similar in essence to the Parang that appears in the British SAS handbook, which is actually a hybrid of a South East Asian Golok (primarily a chopper) and a Parang (primarily a slasher) - so we named it a Golang.  Now we note that the name has gone world-wide!
The Golang utilises the best of both worlds being able to chop as well as slash with equal efficiency. This is a serious wilderness big-blade!
Specifications:
  • Blade Length: 28cms
  • Cutting edge: 24cms
  • Over-all length: 41cms
  • Weight: 570-gms plus scabbard
  • Scabbard: black canvas sheath
  • Handle and Guard : Rubber
  • Manufactured: Sheffield

TAYLORS EYE WITNESS - Made In Sheffield 

Original & Traditional English Spring-back Folders
(Pocketknives and Penknives).

 see our dedicated page for Taylors Eye Witness

Traditionally constructed and manufactured with carbonsteel blades, Eye Witness blades are renowned for ease of honing.  Being carbon, the blade willl discolour if left damp. Over time, they will also develop the grey patina of well-loved and respected old carbon bladed knives. Wipe blades after use, lightly oil and store knives in a dry place. Eye Witness pocketknives have Black Delrin (poly) scales unless otherwise stated, with steel spring-back, linings, and pins.
