The smaller sibling to the El Montero, this Aitor Oso Blanco model from Spain was given to me in 1993 by a security guard of the hostel where I used to live. He would come to my room every night to talk about knives and weapons of all sorts. He was eventually given the sack. No prizes for guessing why.

But thank you Raymond, for the friendship all those years!

The Aitor Oso Blanco follows the original Spanish Army Survival blade design, is of adequate weight and balance, and feels good in the hands.

Aitor Knives from Spain was founded in 1939 and makes great quality knives. The Oso Blanco, which has been around for close to 30 years, sells for about US$100.00 (£60.00 approx.) as at early 2015.
