Messermeister Overland Utility Knife, 11.5cm


Messermeister’s Overland utility knife is a go-to for your off-the-grid cooking needs. The solid knife is sturdy without being bulky, the spine of the knife is extra thick for strength while out and about in nature – ideal for carrying with you while camping. The compact 11.5cm is ideal for chopping and slicing both meat and vegetables. Gut fish, chop wild mushrooms or slice grilled meat easily and safely. 

The handle is designed for good grip and the micarta material means it won't get as slippery as other knives might while wet. It also has an eyelet for a lanyard at the bottom of the handle, which also functions as a bottle opener.

This compact knife still offers the same premium quality of larger Messermeister blades:

  • It is made of nitro-B steel and ranks 62 on the Rockwell hardness scale, meaning your knife will hold its sharp edge for longer before needing sharpening, making for a compact knife that still offers a powerful and controlled cut. 
  • The blade is sharpened at a 16-degree angle for an even and sharp edge from heel to tip.

Messermeister’s Overland knife range was inspired by the world of bushcraft. The challenge was to create high-performance knives for completing everyday tasks while off the grid. These Italian-made knives are built to be rugged, and designed for versatility – use them for any sized task on your camping adventures. 

This knife is not dishwasher safe. Hand wash in warm water and rinse and dry immediately. Avoid cleaners containing citrus and bleach to protect the delicate wood.
