    I believe Aitor is a company based in Spain. Generally good quality knives. But nothing truly exceptional.

    That is correct. They were one of the companies that made the GAK. Came across them when researching mine. Here is what SOSAK has on them:

    Aitor does make a rather interesting combination pliers / SAK-like knife.

    Picture a SAK on steroids, (green handle scales) with a full-size pliers head that folds into the handle. Head looks as though it belongs on a traditional multi-tool. Love child of a SAK and multi-tool that got together one night after both had a bit too much to drink. ;)

    The wirecutters on it are good enough for chicken wire, but not strong enough for cutting heavier gauges of wire.

    So, if they are using it for different armies it must be somewhat reliable right? Many years ago US Cavalry had this knife for around $80.00. I think it was called "Cuchillo del Monte." I was just a teen at the time and basically could not afford to buy it. One day as I was searching for survival knives I saw the "Aitor" Oso Negro. Wow it is exactly like the one in that old catalog!
