The OTTER company was founded around 1840 in Solingen in a small cottage - a traditional, water-powered grinding shop.. The name comes from the fish otters that lived on the banks and streams of the Bergisches Land at that time. These adorn the company's products as a logo.
OTTER knives are still made in Solingen using traditional methods.
Another brand under OTTER knives is the hunting and outdoor series "ROTWILD". The use of high-quality knife steels and materials reflects the company philosophy of the manufactory.
