An artistic variant of the traditional folding knife from French brand MC Cognet Cutlery climbs the charts for this trending knife. The Douk Douk Le Tiki is from a line of staunch folders that have been used for over 70 years by members of the French Army and the French Foreign Legion, a testament to its reliability and sound design.

The stainless steel handle of this variant features a stylized image of the “First Man” from the Maori creation myth—hence the knife’s namesake—and a hardened bright chrome finish for corrosion resistance and a bit of aesthetic flair. The hollow-ground Turkish clip point blade is made of blackened high carbon steel and sports a 3.3” cutting edge that narrows down to a thin point, good for light EDC slicing tasks. This traditional slipjoint features a half-stop and a strong heat-treated backspring to ensure familiar and reliable operation. The whole package is just 2.5 ounces light and 4.25” closed, making for an easy pocket or bag carry.

For a bit of history and mythology in your pocket, as well as a simple yet reliable folder that won’t break the bank, check out the Douk Douk Le Tiki at the link below.
