Famous in the former French colonies for over 70 years and used recently for decades by the Army and in the French Foreign Legion, these are tough.

Nothing fancy about them; just real working, single-blade knives. The handles are gunsmith-style ferro-blackened folded steel. The blades are high carbon steel, hardened to Rc 50-53 and slightly hollow-ground using water grinding wheels. Blade thickness 2.5mm or 3.0mm, and blade length is 2-1/2 or 3-1/8", depending on knife size.

Because they are relatively light and flat, they are great for the pants pocket. Their robustness makes them exceptional for any toolbox. Neat tools for sure. Made in France.

Like a good buddy, this knife is always there but you really don't notice it but it's always there when you need it.

Ive been looking for the Douk Douk knives for a while.Garrett Wade had them and they were in perfect condition. I received them quickly and packaged so they wouldn't get damaged. I will use this site again, no doubt about that. They also have great stuff for my hobbies. Thankfully yours Ronnie

Neat Knife!

I bought the large Douk Douk. It arrived quickly in good condition and razor sharp out of the box. I like to collect knives and recently decided to start buying folding knives from around the world. I don't buy show knives,I buy knives to use, so the Douk Douk was perfect for me. It has a great historical story and it is a very sturdy and useful knife. I would recommend it to anyone who wants a rugged knife on hand.

You feel you carry your grand father knife, the one you left it to you to carry, its not easy to open, but safe when close, when I use it, every one think I have original 50 years old one.
