Douk-Douk Knife

Douk-Douk Knife

$30.00

Item #: 9774

Elegantly simple, eminently portable and well-nigh indestructible, the douk-douk has been the knife of choice for both the civilian labor force and the French Foreign Legion for nearly 90 years. The slip-joint design consists of an ultra-slim, folded sheet-metal handle shielding a single, razor-sharp carbon-steel blade that deploys and retracts via a powerful back spring. Created by M.C. Cognet of Thiers, France, in 1929, it’s virtually unchanged today. The scimitar-shaped blade is engraved with arabesques and the handle with the fearsome visage of the douk-douk, a malevolent mythological figure. Metal lanyard loop. Made in France. 6 1/3"L overall; 2 1/2"L blade.

DETAILS :

    • Simple 6-Part Construction: Handle, Blade, Backspring, 2 Rivets & Metal Bail
    • Carbon-Steel Blade
    • Made in France
