Douk-Douk Knife $32

The douk-douk was originally created in 1929 by Gaspard Cognet for sales to France's Oceanic colonies. A knife originally intended as a utilitarian pocketknife for the common worker quickly gained a massive following among the French Foreign Legion. Constructed like a slipjoint knife, which has a loaded backspring rather than a locking mechanism, and engraved with a representation of the "douk-douk"—a Melanesian spirit meant to bring good luck to the knife-bearer—this rich piece of history will fit easily into your pocket for ultimate indispensability.
