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.

History

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.

Great Knife
Reviewed By:   (Sandy Hook, CT) 
This was a gift for my husband, and he was super excited to receive it. Quite different from what he's used to, and I have a feeling there might be more Douk Douks coming.

Small and Handy
Reviewed By:   (Grand Junction, CO) 
I got the both of the knives, one for my husband and one for myself. We're used to bigger pocket knives, but I absolutely love how skinny these are, especially the blade. I had thought the design on the blade was etched in, but its a print. The design on the handle is, though.

Cool little knives!
Reviewed By:   (Fair Oaks, CA) 
Great little knives. The steel is just the right hardness to keep an edge but still be easily sharpened. The blade doesn't lock, but the spring is strong enough that I'm not worried about it closing unintentionally. And how cool is it that this is the same knife carried by the French Foreign Legion? The story alone is worth the price!

Best Knife for the Pocket
Reviewed By:   (Happy Valley, NC) 
I'm on my fourth or fifth Douk Douk. I'm absentminded and I tend to lose things. These knives simple, basic and perfect. The carbon-steel blade holds a great edge, they're 1/8" thick so they're great in the pocket. Rust isn't an issue, if they're used regularly - I carry it every day. I sharpen with a 1000 grit diamond butterfly sharpener and have never missed a keen edge. Fantastic knife, think I'll order another for the next time it gets lost.
