Aitor Knives

Ever since Cotoctin Cutlery went our of business at the end of 1998 I have been looking for a US distributor for the Spanish made Aitor knife line. Does anybody know who is distributing these knives in the US.

Are you the same guy that was looking for one of these over in rec.knives?
I still have mine and I guess I will sell it if we can come up with a fair price. I know what it is like to want something for a long time and then not be able to find it.

I think this should be over in another forum though.

Mine is in pretty nice shape. There is still some of the original grinding marks from where it was sharpened at the factory. I did start to sharpen the false edge,but I quit before I got to far along. I don't believe it hurt the blade any other than taking some of the coating off.
The blade has some scabbard wear and there's some coating removed from a place on the right side of the blade from the top of the grind on the bevel to a place on the sawteeth. It is about 1/4" X 1/4" and isn't solid. More like a scrape that didn't take it all off. There is a faded or worn place on the same side where there is a hole in the scabbard. The other side has a spot worn through the coating right where the grinds intersect. It is about 3/16"ths X 1/8"th.There is anoter one at the same place on the other side that is even smaller.

The handle is very nice and hasn't been used to pound anything with.The knurling is also still very crisp

The scabbard is also very nice.It has a couple of minor buffed type marks on it,but isn't scraped badly.The heavy canvas isn't frayed anywhere.

I have described it to the best of my ability and if you are interested e-mail me and we will work out the details. Then you can have the old knife as well as the old catalog. I do that to with knives and other things I have wanted over the years.
I have a pic of the most beautiful straight self bow you ever saw.


Thanks YVSA

No, I am not the guy looking for the Aitor knife on the other thread. I was just trying to find the local distributor.

Thanks for the input on the REC KNIFE area. I'll look into it.

by the way.. what model Aitor do you have?
I knew this fellow is pretty desperate for the Famous
"Cuchillo De Monte>" The Spanish Army Issue Knife and that's what I have.
I think he said he still has the old "Sportsmans Guide" catalog that it was last advertised in. I guess I will go post it on rec.knives in a day or so. This is the 1st. Stainless Steel knife that I ever had that held a good edge. I chopped some Oklahoma Blackjack Oak with the thing for fire wood and it still shaved hair. That is a feat in itself !! That oak seems to suck up sand when it is growing!

I know what it is like to want somethng for a long time and then
lose out because it is no longer made or something. I have enjoyed it for a long time and thought about it after I got an e-mail from him. It would be the right thing to do for me.

I have no idea what it may be worth though. Any ideas?

Maybe someone here can help you. I am still pretty new here myself.
Good luck.
