Douk-Douk French Carbon Steel Folding Knife - Black - DD815
Douk-Douk French Carbon Steel Folding Knife - Small - DD815PM
Cognet is a company in Thiers, France that makes the famous Douk-Douk knife.
The design of the douk-douk is attributed to Gaspard Cognet of Cognet. The handle depicts a "douk-douk" which is a Melanesian spirit incarnated on earth on this fanciful character.
After the Douk-douk design the "El Baraka" and "Tiki" were created for other regional markets.
The popularity of the douk-douk caused it to be used as a utilitarian military knife which, when needed, could also be used as a weapon.
As an interesting aside the Douk-douk could easily be converted from a folding knife into a fixed-blade dagger by simply hammering the ends of the handle together behind the blade's bolster.
Currently the Cognet company produces a large number of knives useful for many purposes.
