While there are some pieces of everyday carry gear that go through frequent, extensive changes to improve their materials, design and more, there are others that are so iconic and magnificently built that they’ve remained the same for years. The French-made Douk-Douk friction folding knife — named after the Melanesian spirit of destruction — fits into that latter category, as it has remained nearly unchanged for the better part of a century.

What’s perhaps the most remarkable thing about this non-locking knife’s unaltered design — besides its high-quality carbon steel blade mated to a ferro-blackened folded steel handle — is that the same family has been making it since its inception. And their expertise is reflected in the durability and longevity of this workingman’s blade. It also benefits from a bail mounted on the tail end (to secure it when the knife is not in use or attach it to a keychain or paracord lanyard), a total length of 6.4″ (with a 3″ blade, perfect for places with length restrictions), and it features etched artwork harkening back to its namesake. This gorgeous, historically-significant heirloom knife can be yours for $30.

Purchase: $30
