The online community of knife collectors, A Knife Family Forged in Steel
We all have them. How about the Hawk of the Great Outdoors. Here is my take of the Mercury Mico 1 Mushroom Collecting Knife.
The Mercury Mico 1.
Comes with small tweezers, attached boar's hair brush, and instructions on use. Knife arrived in nice clear plastic case with red lining. It makes for a very nice presentation if you were to consider gifting it.
The blade is the sharpest I have encountered on a Mushroom knife
