Whether for a gift or to keep for yourself, you'll appreciate the hard work this Congress does. This is a hard-working knife used for everything from whittling to cutting tobacco to cutting rope, and more. A great size and weight, this pocket knife tackles big job but still fits into small places. Made of 3Cr13MoV stainless steel, this knife is built to last. The black swirl cellulose handles, brass pins, and stainless steel bolsters give it a classic look that you'll want to show off. Stories about the origins of the Congress pattern knife abound, but it's popularity is legendary. Even President Lincoln carried one on the fatal night at Ford's Theater.
