Default Strange Brand name

Hi Folks.
I have a brand of Bins the old style (not rubberised) with the name 'Katumer' on them.
A google search brings up absolutely nothing at all except a couple of long expired auction site sales.
Can anyone tell me where these optics are made or perhaps another company has taken over the original name.

I had a Google for you and came up with the same as yourself, auction sites sales and the question you also put on 'Bushcraftuk'.


I hope you eventually get an answer to your question.

There seems to be a "bush camp" of the same name in Tanzania,I wonder if these were for use by their clients.They do look like the basic 8x30 porro prism bins of years ago.
