Ötzi is one of Europe's oldest natural preserved mummies. He is a treasure to the archaeological community due to the preservation of his remains, and his tools. In his toolkit, the Iceman had a flint dagger affixed to a wood handle. In honor of our universal human heritage, Condor presents the Otzi Knife, inspired by this hard use tool from a time when we relied on nature for our survival. It's a simple knife with a burnt American hickory wood handle with recessed wire wrap and handcrafted welted leather drop sheath.

What a unique neck knife absolutely brilliant. Received a bit on the dull side but sharpened to a razor edge now, no 90-degree spine to throw sparks but that can be sorted out, very happy with this and arrived quickly
Great little knife! A must have for history lovers!
Knife is a real art piece. If you look on Youtube for the history of this knife and are a history fanatic you will also have the need for one. Not a moments regret from when I bought it.
