Postby Ansoknives » Thu Jun 05, 2008 2:02 am


I am Jens Anso of ... I have been lurking for a while but felt it was about time to sign up for the forum. Some of you know me as custom knifemaker and some as the designer of the Rock Lobster soon to be released.

A Big thank you goes out to Sal, his family and crew for a wonderfull time at Bladeshow and for working with me on the Rock Lobster!

I will be happy to try and answer any and all question you might have regarding the Rock Lobster as well as any other questions I might be of help answering.

I look forward to participation on this great forum!

I never had a chance to handle your knives before.

I think it should be one of the most interesting designs in Spyderco lineup this year.
