Mushroom knives - a huge selection from Mercury, Maserin, Linder, Viper and more!
Part of the mushroom collector's "code of honor" is to take the mushroom without disturbing the delicate mycelium - the underground infrastructure of the mushroom. In order to do this correctly the mushroom collector needs a knife with the right shaped blade. It is also helpful to have a brush to clean the dirt off the mushroom.
Some mushroom knives will have a folding ruler or marks on the handle to indicate the size of the mushroom cap. Others may have tweezers, a compass or belt clip.

Mercury of Italy offers a wide range of mushroom collecting knives. Mercury's Mico P is a simple, but effective solution for mycologists. It is made of bright red impact plastic, (hard to lose) a tough blade, a lanyard ring and synthetic brush. It measures 10cm closed and is compact and light weight.
The Mico 3 mushroom knife is a step up from the Mico P. It features a rosewood handle, tweezers, ruler, tough stainless steel blade serrated on the back side, a natural bristle brush and a handy lanyard ring. This knife would make any mushroom collector happy.
The Mico 2 is Mercury's top of the line mushroom collecting knife. It also has a rosewood handle, tweezers, ruler, and natural bristle brush. But it also includes a special pruning blade, and a compass with map scales! This is a great knife.
Maserin of Italy also provides some very fine Mushroom knives. Their olive wood knife with a textured "gunstock" handle is one of our favorites. Also, check out their 800-C which comes in a variety of vibrant colors.
